Steps you must follow Before and after Hair Transplant | Instructions

 

What you can expect before and after a hair transplant.

 

Extensive hair loss leading to bald patches on the scalp takes a heavy toll on one’s self-esteem. While some people choose to live with it and do nothing about it; others, who are concerned with their looks, go out on a hunt looking for the best possible techniques to restore their hair. If you belong to the latter part, then getting a hair transplant done must have crossed your mind at least once.

Hair transplant procedures consistently proved as successful and life-changing experiences for many. And despite the popularity, people still have uncertainties pertaining to its efficacy. After all, ‘what to expect and what not to expect’- is the real problem!

Before you jump onto the expectations, understand that the surgery of hair transplant is divided into three phases- one before the procedure begins, second, during the surgery, and third, after the surgery is completed.

The procedure carried out during the surgery entails medical terms and jargon, this makes it an apt read for doctors and surgeons who are performing the surgery. While for the patients, it’s better only to focus on what to expect before or after the procedure.

Here’s what to expect before the procedure:

Your doctor will ask you to follow some pre-operative guidelines; these include-

  • Stop taking blood thinners.
  • Stop consuming multivitamins that include Vitamin-B or Vitamin -E ,  at least three days before the surgery.
  • Refrain from consuming alcohol and caffeinated drinks three days before the surgery.
  • Same goes for smoking and tobacco as well. Having these toxic products before the surgery is a big no-no.
  • Have a good hair wash, but make sure to avoid using gels, sprays and other styling products.

Here’s what to expect after the procedure:

Hair transplant surgery generally takes place over the course of a day; therefore aftercare is the most crucial part of the procedure.

  • The doctor will bandage the extraction zone to keep the small incisions clean. He/She will recommend you to keep the bandage on till the next morning.
  • The doctor will provide you a protective cap . He / she will let you know for how long to keep wearing the cap.
  • You will also get an aftercare Kit. This kit contains medications and materials, which helps in keeping your hair and scalp in the best condition.
  • The doctor will provide you detailed instructions on how to look after your new hair. This includes- how to care for your hair, what to avoid after the surgery, when to get a haircut done, etc.
  • When to visit the doctor for the follow-up. He or she will tell you the appropriate dates for the next sessions.

Conclusion:

Like a normal surgery, a hair transplant is nothing different. Once you let go of the false notions, you allow yourself to be more open to understanding the exact procedure of the surgery. Just abide by the rules put forward by your doctor, and you’ll be good to go!
