6 Questions You Would Ask After A Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is generally divided into three basic processes as before the operation, during the operation and after the operation. Although the quantitative extent of the factors to be considered after the operation reflects the period after hair transplantation as a difficult process, this situation is mostly a big mistake.

In order to get maximum efficiency from the hair transplant operation, it is necessary to adhere to certain rules for a certain period of time after the operation as well as in the pre-operative period. In general, each of these rules, which are gathered under the heading of things to be considered after hair transplantation, should be evaluated in its own way.

How Long To Recover From Hair Transplant?


After hair transplantation, you will be given a number of recommendations according to the density of transplantation. These recommendations are significant in terms of both achieving success in terms of hair transplant results and having the fastest recovery period. It is possible to wash as described with the recommended shampoo after the day you are told. The healing process is approximately 10 days, but full recovery takes about 8 or 10 weeks. After the operation, it is necessary to pass 12 months or more than a year for the final results to appear in hair transplantation.


How To Hide A Hair Transplant?


People with these scars after surgery may experience problems while continuing their daily lives. They may want to remove the surgical scars for reasons such as not being able to cut their hair short because the scars are visibly thick. In this case, there are several methods that can be applied. One of them is the scar method. With this method, the previously formed suture scar is cut and removed. Then it is closed by sewing again with a special technique. Thus, a less obvious scar is left. Another method is to perform a hair transplant on the area where the scar is located, using the FUE technique. This time, the removed hair follicles can be transplanted into the existing scar, so that the scar can be closed and hidden.


How Long Does Swelling Last After Hair Transplant


There will most likely be some swelling after the first day. Swelling under the eyes and around the temples is a normal part of the healing process. It is possible that it will never happen. Edema usually appears after the first day of the operation FUE hair transplantation. On the advice of their doctor, patients can use steroids to prevent swelling. To reduce edema and swelling, lie in a semi-sitting position and keep the upper part of the body elevated.


When can I wear a hat after a hair transplant?


After FUE subgroup hair transplant treatment or hair restoration surgery, it takes approximately 7 to 10 days for the grafts to fully adhere to their new positions. Until the grafts achieve this permanence, it is necessary to avoid compressing them. Because wearing a hat can compress, displace or dislodge the grafts, which may prevent the desired results from being achieved. Once the grafts are a permanent part of your scalp, you can easily wear a hat. Once the grafts are a permanent part of your scalp, you can easily wear a hat. This period is approximately between 7 and 10 days.


When Can I Scratch My Head After Hair Transplant


This is very normal during the healing process. This process will continue for three months, most people experience this situation. So don’t panic if you think this is just you. What you need to do is not to scratch the planting area. Because it is the process of keeping the hair in the first 20 days on average. When you scratch during this process, you can remove the transplanted hair. You can scratch the donor area (hair on the forehead and the back of the head), and there will be no problem. If you cannot stand it alone, if it says you have to scratch it, press very lightly on the transplanted area and rub a small amount without using your nail. We warn you again, do not scratch as much as possible. The most intense itching is those that occur within an average of 14 days. The reason why it is intense in this process is because the healing process is the most in these days. After 2 weeks, it gradually decreases. Only after this period will there be occasional itching. Because the hair strands are slowly coming out. There is no intense itching within 14 days, but it may be mild in between.


How To Cover Head After Hair Transplant


As previously stated, it is advised to leave the head uncovered for the first two weeks following a hair transplant. This way, we can ensure healthy hair growth while avoiding any disruption to the grafts. However, there are some situations in which we advise patients to cover their heads after a hair transplant. And here are some examples: After a hair transplant, the scalp becomes very sensitive and sore, necessitating extra care. This includes sun exposure and UV rays. You run the risk of sunburning your scalp and interfering with the healing process if you don’t protect it from the sun’s rays. Furthermore, being in the sun for an extended period of time causes you to sweat, which leads to infections and the accumulation of bacteria on open wounds. In this case, it is prudent to cover your head with a hat following a hair transplant. You can wear a loose hat.
