As we’ve seen before, hair transplant procedures can create many different questions and doubts. Even though they’re fairly straight-forward, it’s natural to question whether they’re right for you or not – no matter which hair restoration treatments you choose, we endeavour to put these doubts to rest and ensure that you don’t have to worry about a thing when it comes to restoring your hair to its former glory.
How Long is the Recovery Time?
Even though the healing period varies from patient to patient, in general you can expect a quick recovery. The incisions done during the hair restoration process are extremely small and less invasive than other techniques, which results in faster healing too.
The vast majority of customers feel great within a couple of days after surgery – still, some numbness or soreness is natural and can be expected for a few days following the procedure.
When Will My Hair Start Growing?
Again, it depends on the person, but your hair follicles are likely to start growing new hair after three to five months after the hair transplant. The initial hair will be thin, after which it will gradually become stronger and thicker.
When Can I Return to My Job?
After a couple of days you should be fine to return to work, although it might vary, depending on what you do. If you’re exposed to dust and rain, as well as the possibility of head trauma, or you perform heavy jobs, you should wait at least a week before carrying on work as usual.
Are There Contraindications for Getting a Hair Transplant?
Some people might not be able to undergo hair restoration procedure. If you have a poor donor area and a tendency to form keloids, you may not be an ideal candidate. Also, skin conditions like vitiligo and psoriasis, as well as infections, can reduce the possibility of getting a transplant – or of having a successful procedure.
Are There Any Precautions to Hair Transplant?
Although your doctor will talk to you about specific precaution to take before having surgery, you should still avoid taking medication designed to thin your blood at least a week before the procedure. This avoids excessive bleeding during the transplant process.
