Hair transplant surgery can help fix male pattern baldness caused due to various reasons including genetics. In this treatment, a hair surgeon moves hair from the back of the head or from the portion above the ears to places where there is no hair. This simple process promises excellent results if it is performed well and good aftercare is taken.

Having known how does hair transplant work, it is also integral to know hair transplant recovery tips to be sure of getting the best results without any hassle. We will guide you with certain precautions that must be taken along with tips on how to take care of yourself, after a hair transplant. Read this article written by our hair experts to acquaint yourself with all the information needed to get a transplant done.

What Should Not Do After Hair Transplant?

What Should Not Do After Hair Transplant?

Hair transplant is a sensitive process for many, be it a robotic hair transplant or a fue hair transplant. After you get the treatment done, our hair experts and the hair surgeon will provide you with a guide that must be followed in all cases. It often happens that people choose to listen to other people instead of following the guide. However, it is important to realise that the treatment works out differently for different people and therefore, you must listen to your assigned hair expert only.

Here are certain things which you should not do after a hair transplant for a speedy hair transplant recovery:

  • Exercise and strenuous activity: Refrain from all physical activities which lead to excessive sweating. You must follow this for at least two weeks. Additionally, we also recommend that you do not let blood rush in your head in activities such as bending down.
  • Washing your hair: You must avoid washing your hair for at least 48 hours after you get the treatment done as it will keep your hair grafts and hair follicles protected. Even after 48 hours, when you have to wash your hair it must be done by diluting the shampoo in water first so that it does not come in direct contact with your hair.
  • Do not wear a hat: Covering your head with a hat must be strictly avoided for at least 3-4 days after which you can wear a loose-fitting hat and eventually also wear a tight cap after 5 days have passed by. The slower this process, the better it would be.
  • Do not use a hair dye: After getting a hair transplant treatment done, you must not use a hair dye or any other chemical in your hair for at least 4 weeks. The hair grafts and hair follicles are still frail in the beginning and are taking root which is why you must take care of them to be awarded the best results.
  • Do not smoke: Just like the use of chemicals, you must avoid smoking for 4 weeks after your treatment. It is best if you can stop smoking altogether, however, if not, then you must avoid it for a minimum of 4 weeks as it can interfere with the blood flow.
  • Do not touch your hair: It is very natural to want to wave your hand over your new hair in excitement. However, this can be the riskiest thing to do since the grafts and the follicles may not have found their foothold on the head immediately after the treatment. You must avoid touching your hair as much as possible for some days at least.

How Long After Hair Transplant Are Grafts and Follicles Secure?

It generally takes approximately 8-10 days for the grafts and follicles to find its hold in your head skin. Initially, they are frail and hence, you must be very cautious with them for at least 2 weeks after the transplant. There are certain factors that determine the graft and follicle on your head including the client’s health, characteristics of the hair as well as the operative method.

Some hair grafts and hair follicles or hair may seem like they are fall-off in the beginning, but you must not worry about it. It is just like certain hair will be falling during the course of a few days and here since these grafts and follicles are frail, they stand a higher chance of falling and must be treated with patience.

How Long Does It Take To Look Normal After Hair Transplant?

It generally takes 6-8 months to see the results of a hair transplant treatment and look completely normal. However, for some people, it might take longer, close to 12 months to get to the same level.

During this process, certain hair will also fall out and you might feel like your hair is thinning. However, in a span of a maximum of 12 months, you will see the results of the hair transplant. You might also have to take certain medicines recommended by your hair surgeon or hair experts for some days to escalate the process and give the best results.

How Can I Get the Best Results After Hair Transplant?

By following all the precautions mentioned by the hair transplant surgeon and the hair experts, you will get the best results after a hair transplant surgery. There are certain things that you have to keep in mind such as refraining from coming in direct contact with the sun, refraining from itching your head and smoking or drinking.

Following the precautions and taking the prescribed medicines timely should help you get extraordinary results. You must remember at all times that proper care of 3-5 days will help you live with a smooth treatment throughout and hence, this care becomes extremely necessary.

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.

There was a lot of care and attention displayed by their staff in handling my hair fall issue. Similarly, the receptionists are both friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh.
