Excited to restore the fuller hair you had in your glory days? Then you’ll want to make sure you follow these simple guidelines after your hair transplant. Taking care of yourself according to the plastic surgeon’s recommendations is important after every surgical procedure to maximize the results of your treatment, and a hair transplant is no exception. Here are our recommendations for hair transplant aftercare so you can be confident that you’re doing everything you can for proper post-hair transplant care.
Specifics Vary Depending on Transplant Details
Before we get into our specific recommendations post-procedure, it’s important to recognize that there are a variety of types of hair transplants. Details of individual procedures will translate to different specific requirements and guidelines for hair transplant aftercare associated with those types of hair transplants. At Salameh Plastic Surgery, we offer the best hair restoration procedure involving a one-time procedure that uses robotic ARTAS technology. This clinically-proven solution leads to real hair growth without procedural scarring and side effects that come with other types of hair transplant procedures.
As you can see from the before and after images above, ARTAS delivers beautifully natural-looking results. And the best part is, you don’t have to do much to make it work for you. ARTAS does the work; you just need to follow the steps below and any other specifics detailed by our plastic surgeons.
Immediately after your hair transplant, you’ll want to take a few simple steps for aftercare. The first few days following the procedure are important for allowing your treatment to “settle in” and promoting optimal results. While our ARTAS hair transplant system is minimally invasive, your scalp will still likely feel sensitive for the first few days after the procedure. You should limit sun exposure to protect your scalp, and you’ll also want to take it easy on your body in general so that the transplant takes effect as naturally as possible. Do not wash your hair right after the procedure. Avoid strenuous physical activity, including going to the gym, that first week. Activity that increases heart rate raises blood pressure, which can negatively impact your newly transplanted hair. Dr. Salameh may give you other specific personal guidelines for your post-hair transplant care.
Routines to Practice Consistently
You don’t need to use specific vitamins or creams with ARTAS hair transplant aftercare. The main concern is to protect and care for your scalp; it’s always a good idea to prioritize the health of both your hair and scalp. You won’t have scarring, but you may experience some sensitivity.
In terms of styling, ARTAS hair transplant is a restorative procedure meant to give you confidence, so look forward to establishing whatever routine you want! You’ll be able to wear and style your hair any way you’d like. Your new hair is permanently and naturally yours, so you can care for it just as you cared for your hair before your transplant procedure. The more you love your hair, the happier you’ll be.
The most important reminder when it comes to hair transplant aftercare is not to be discouraged when you don’t see a dramatic difference in your hair immediately. This type of hair transplant provides natural-looking new hair growth, but it takes time to see full results. Patience is key!
You will likely see noticeable growth within about three months. Most of the growth will take place between the five to eight-month mark after your procedure, with final results coming in after a full year.
