What to Expect After a Hair Transplant A hair transplant is quite a simple procedure in principle.
Hair transplants are an expensive and a serious commitment. You want to be sure that you take great care of yourself after your surgery and it’s important that you follow post-operative instructions to ensure optimal healing and growth of your newly transplanted hairs.
The night of your procedure, and the next few nights after, you need to sleep with your head elevated.
Get a travel pillow, it will help you to sleep in greater comfort.
The next morning after your procedure, remove your headband, shower, and shampoo your scalp 3 times. For the remainder of the week after your procedure, shower and shampoo (very gently) twice a day.
10 Days after your procedure the grafts are considered permanent, so you can resume normal shampooing and hair care.
Avoid taking blood thinning medications like aspirin for a few days before the surgery, and avoid alcohol for a minimum of 3 days after your procedure, to allow sufficient healing time.
Smoking, like alcohol, can limit your body’s ability to heal after any medical procedure, so its best to abstain from cigarettes for at least 2 weeks (before and) after your hair transplant.
Wear a hat when in strong sunlight. Two weeks following your procedure you are encouraged to use sunscreen with 30 or higher SPF.
Three weeks after your hair transplant, you can get a haircut. Four weeks after your hair transplant, you can dye your hair.
When showering, gently clean the transplanted area . FUE grafts are made to fit snugly into the recipient sites and will not dislodge in the shower. You must be very gentle for the first week after your surgery. Normal shampooing, brushing, and hair care can be resumed ten days post-op. You can also have a haircut at this point, if you’d like.
Your newly transplanted hair begins to grow at around 10 weeks. In most cases, it will be fully grown within a year.
In the first few months following your surgery there may be some shedding of your original hair so that the transplanted area may temporarily appear slightly thinner. This is a phenomenon that will self-correct when the new hair begins to grow. It should not be a cause for concern.

Dr. Jones helped me find alternatives to expensive surgery, and they have worked well. He is professional and his staff is very helpful. I would highly recommend his practice to others.
