Exercise after Hair Transplant
After the operation, the operation area should be well protected against all kinds of trauma, especially in the first two weeks. Therefore, heavy exercises may negatively affect the new hair follicles as they have a risk of outer impact.
Try to have some rest for the first few days and stay away from heavy and tiring work. Since the new hair follicles are very sensitive, be careful against impacts and protect your scalp. Furthermore, you must preserve the operation area from sunlight, air pollution and rain for a certain period after the procedure.
Severe exercise and body lifting may damage the hair follicles as they are in holding and healing process. Likewise, you should not go to the sea, pool, sauna for the first 15 days.
On the other hand, light-paced exercises such as jogging or walks are possible. However, we recommend you wait for at least a month before starting exercising. This will ensure healthy results and minimize potential risks due to external trauma.
After a month, you can continue doing heavy exercises as the hair follicles ultimately hold on to the scalp. Thanks to new techniques in hair transplant, you can have a relatively comfortable postoperative period. Therefore, if you follow your doctor’s recommendations, you can get healthy and successful results.
