Hair transplant can be performed and scheduled at any time of the year. In winter or summer, in autumn or spring, a surgery performed by professional doctors will give an excellent result. As for some restrictions in the postoperative period, they exist regardless of the season.
When is the best time for hair transplant?
The best time for a hair transplant is when the patient feels ready for the operation. After all, if we consider this issue from the point of view of restrictions, then they exist at any time of the year. The doctor’s recommendations for the postoperative period are the same for any season:
· minimal physical activity;
· avoiding any physical influences on the transplanted hair until they are completely healed;
· Lack of alcohol and cigarettes in the first week after the transplant, etc.
On the other hand, you can imagine what time of year it will be easiest for you to follow all recommendations and based on this make a decision.
Hair transplant in summer
After hair transplant in summer, the patient needs to protect the transplanted area from the sun. This can be done with a special hat that freely covers the head. Despite the heat, it is forbidden to swim after the surgery (both in the pool and in the sea), visit the sauna or stay in the sun for a long time. The same restrictions apply in winter. But in winter it’s psychologically easier to forbid you to swimming in the sea, isn’t it?
Hair transplant in winter
The main danger of hair transplant in winter is sudden temperature changes (for example, when you come home from the street). The patient will have to work hard to find a suitable headgear so that it protects the head from temperature differences and does not squeeze or damage the scalp and transplanted hair. Sometimes, if the surgery takes place in winter, it is best to stay at home for the entire rehabilitation period (3-5 days) to reduce the risk of damage to the transplanted follicles.
