After Hair Transplant Care in Hair Restoration Surgery
After hair transplant care is a vital subject that subject who undergo a hair transplant procedure need to know and follow thoroughly.
All patients who had a hair transplant surgery using a strip method generally leave our hair transplant center with a bandage around their head. The bandage is used just to support the newly closed donor wound on the back of scalp. Patients are given prescription for anti-inflammatory and pain drugs for first few days after surgery. The first night after hair transplant surgery, patients requires to be cautious not to rub or scratch the transplanted area. It is advised that the all patients take it easy for the first days and reject heavy physical exercises.
Hair Restoration Surgery Before And After
Hair transplant patients need to go back to hair transplant clinic at day ten after the hair transplant surgery to get rid of the staples and to revaluate the recipient and donor area. For the patient who have their donor closed with absorbable sutures, it is advised to be seen in ten days to assess the healthiness of the donor and recipient area, which contains patients who had FUE, hair transplant repair, eyebrow hair transplant, hair restoration surgery before and after and body hair transplants. All follow up visits are added in the primary cost of hair transplant surgery and patients would not be charged for any follow up visits.
Hair restoration surgery before and after patient should reject direct sun exposure to the recipient area for about 6 months after follicular unit transplant surgery. Direct and extreme sun exposure may destroy the growing grafts. Sun contact may also cause skin changing the skin shade.
The final follow up appointment for their after the hair transplant care is between months 10 to 11 after their hair transplant surgery, when transplanted hair grows to its final length and thickness. This visit is a best time for patients who wants to consider a repeat surgery to rise the density of hair or cover the places that has not been fully covered with the first hair transplant surgery due to the restricted scalp laxity or extended balding area. All patients who are planning for a repeat surgery do not have to wait that long and a repeat surgery could be performed any time after five months after the primary hair transplant procedure.
Patients of hair restoration surgery before and after should be seen as required in addition to the above described visits for a big range of different reasons and a best patient-physician relationship is a vital part of the success of the hair restoration surgery before and after procedures at US Hair Restoration clinics.
