You must adhere to a few post-operative guidelines and suggestions from your hair doctor to achieve the best outcomes after undergoing a hair restoration treatment. Recovery after baldness treatment is a crucial step in the hair restoration process. You can achieve the best results depending on how much care you provide to the restored hair during this time. The most crucial element is typical to reduce issues and negative effects following a hair restoration.

Hair Restoration Post-Operative Care

The immediate post-operative period is crucial for healing and recovery, which can significantly impact the final result of your procedure.

At AHS Clinic, we offer comprehensive aftercare instructions for hair restorations and a helpline so you can get all the support during this period.

Hair Restoration Post-Operative Recovery Timeline

You will have continuous access to our complete post-hair restoration aftercare programme and professional assistance after your treatment is finished and you leave our facility.

Before your new follicles fully accept and start to grow new hair naturally, it may take 2-3 months. Although the new hair growth cyclemay be unruly and imperfect initially, it won’t be long until you resume having the youthful head of hair you once had. Most patients get full natural hair growth about ten months after the operation. Please be aware that each patient’s outcomes and recovery timeframes vary. It doesn’t necessarily indicate that the operation didn’t work or that your outcomes won’t be as good if your hair growth surgery takes longer than expected to heal.

As usual, you are welcome to the clinic for a checkup as part of our aftercare guarantee if you have any concerns.

The Recovery Period Following a Hair Restoration (1 To 4 Days)

You must carefully adhere to the aftercare instructions provided by your surgeon. When you are first released following a hair restoration, you will receive an aftercare kit to go home with everything you need. To defend against infection, stop scabbing, and hasten the recovery of the follicles, you must take care of your scalp and use the kit as prescribed. Additionally, you must get as much rest as possible in the first few days following your hair restoration. It is because resting expedites recovery, as well as the fact that the process wears out your body.

Swimming, drinking alcohol, smoking, engaging in high-impact exercise, and other activities should all be avoided during these brief post-hair restoration recovery days.

If you must comb your hair, be careful to do it while it is still damp to prevent bleeding or irritation. Fortunately, you may contact AHS’s aftercare staff anytime if you have any questions or concerns about anything related to your rehabilitation. We will inform you of any safety measures you must take after your hair restoration.

Going Back to Your Hair Care Routine (Day 14 and after)

Your scalp might look pink and scabby at this time. It normally lasts 10 to 14 days but may persist for longer if you have a pale complexion. It is insignificant as long as there is no discomfort or suffering. Once the pink skin and scabs have completely healed, your transplanted follicles will soon begin to produce thick, healthy new hairs. Your follicles will go dormant once more, and all of your new hair will fall out, leaving you with the same appearance before the hair restoration.

You can now resume shampooing your hair in the usual manner. It will be alright if your typical shampoo isn’t very harsh or rough.

Although you are advised to let your hair dry naturally, you can also gently pat it dry with a clean cloth. You should also avoid using products you are allergic to or sensitive to. Although most shampoos are safe, we advise contacting us if you have any questions about any components.

If you have one, We will take your stitches out in seven to ten days following the operation. Most of the time, you can start exercising again at this point, but it is advised to speak with your doctor beforehand to ensure your complete safety and healing.

Consultation Appointments (3-6 Months)

Consultation appointments

Your hair will gradually start to grow normally again once your scalp has healed and we’ve allowed nature to do its thing. Then, around the three and six-month marks, we will schedule checkup appointments to see how things are doing and to take pictures of your development. Although we know that life might be busy, kindly include these in your calendar. It is crucial since everyone’s recovery is unique. It also enables us to ensure that nothing odd about your recovery is happening. It offers you another opportunity to ask our specialists any concerns you may have regarding aftercare and the future of your hair problems.

Hair Grows Naturally and is Regrown (6 to 9 months)

2-3 months following your treatment, the initial natural hair regrowth will start, although it will be spotty and uneven at this stage because all the follicles are only starting to function.

Most of your follicles should start producing hair between 8 and 10 months. Trim is typically required at this time to restore the uniform length of the hair. Most hair restoration post-op patients will have experienced natural, healthy hair growth by then.

Final Review and Feedback (9 to 12 months)

We will meet for one final hair restoration aftercare checkup 12 months after your treatment. Checking your hairline and growth will be necessary to judge the overall outcome. At this time, we also take feedback about your opinion on our personnel and operating methods. As you can see, our hair transformation procedure and aftercare plan are tried-and-true, exact, and deliver outcomes. .

What to Expect After Hair Restoration Surgery

  • If post-operative instructions are faithfully followed, restoration is barely noticeable after a few days and disappears within 10 to 14 days. Utilise medication prescribed by the surgeon to reduce swelling during surgery.
  • Some people still suffer swelling near the forehead, typically above the nose and around the eyes, even after taking medication. By the end of the initial week, it normally disappears in this situation.
  • You might see a growth in the freshly transplanted hair after three months. Within six months, new hair typically grows for a considerable amount of time, and a year after the treatment, you can see several hairs that have fully grown.
  • In the months following the treatment, some genuine hair may fall out, and you could notice that the hair in the restored area is a little thinner. This transient occurrence is typical just before new hair begins to grow.
  • As a result, this stage should be anticipated and not cause for alarm. Pain, typical healing indicators, and some symptoms you might go through. Immediately following surgery, there may be bleeding from the donor location.
  • To stop the bleeding, keep applying the medical gauze to this region as long as necessary.
  • The area around the donor and transplant may also hurt. It is advised to consult your doctor if the situation persists.
  • It is normal to experience tingling or numbness in the restored area, and it will go away on its own.
  • The likelihood of infection following surgery is extremely low. However, you should contact us immediately if you see or suspect any infection-related symptoms.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
