This is crucial that you follow the aftercare steps set out by your surgeons closely. It is also very important that you rest as much as possible in the first few days after your hair transplant operaion done. Resting helps to speed up your recovery.There are some things that has to be avoided during these few days after hair transplant, such as swimming, drinking alcohol, smoking, high-impact exercise and more.It is also crucial you keep your scalp well hydrated during this period with regular saline sprays.If you need to comb your hair be sure to do so carefully while it is soaking wet to avoid causing any bleeding or irritation. In first couple of days you should be really carefull. After 5 days, the soreness and swelling that appeared after the transplant should have mostly disappeared.However, you should still avoid shampoo at this stage and focus on gently removing any dried skin or scabs.
Even though most of the healing is done at this stage, we would still recommend avoiding any high impact exercise at this point after your hair transplant, just to be absolutely sure all follicles are healed before you get going again. 10 days later approximately, your scalp will likely appear pink and scabbed.This typically only lasts around 10-14 days but in the case of people with pale skin, it can stick around for longer.As long as there is no pain or discomfort this is nothing to worry about.
Once the pink skin and scabs have fully healed, your follicles will go dormant again and all of your new hair will fall out, making you look like you did before the hair transplant even began.At this stage, you are able to begin washing your hair again as normal. You can use our regular shampoo and dry with warm water but we recommend to consult us if you face any type of allergic reactions.This path should be followed once per day from days four to fourteen. You can exercise but at this point its good to being cautious, please before the exercise consult us.
After three months and later, we let nature take its course and your hair will slowly begin to grow naturally again.We can hold check-up appointments at the 3 month and the 6 month mark just to check how everything is going and take photos of your progress.

After ten months,first natural hair regrowth will begin 2-3 months after your procedure, but it will be patchy and uneven at this point due to all the follicles beginning to work at different times.Between 5-8 months the majority of your follicles should be growing hairs again, and by the 10 month mark the vast majority of hair transplant post-op patients will have achieved full, natural, healthy hair growth.At this point, a trim is usually needed to bring all of the hair back to the same length.
