Process After Hair Transplant

Hair transplant treatment is a procedure that can be performed on anyone who has experienced hair loss due to various traumas, especially genetic predisposition, and whose general health condition is appropriate.

Hair transplant treatment is performed by taking healthy hair follicles from the donor area, called the donor area, behind both ears or the nape of the neck with different techniques and transplanting them to the area of hair loss. It is a risk-free procedure performed under local anesthesia.

The first 15 days after hair transplant treatment are very critical. Ignoring the recommendations of the specialist doctor and hair transplant teams performing the operation prevents possible complications and ensures that the treatment process is completed in a healthy way with minimal damage.

Although the completion of the healing process and the growth of new hair; in short, reaching the full result of the treatment varies from person to person, it is generally completed between 6 months and 1 year. If we need to summarize the most important details in the process after hair transplant treatment under headings;

Washing Process After Operation

After hair transplant, it takes a certain time for the transplanted grafts to hold on to the scalp. For this reason, contact with the scalp during this process, any harsh intervention or impact causes the grafts to be shaken and cannot hold on to the scalp, hindering the healing process.

Even worse, it causes the desired result of the treatment not to be obtained. The first washing process after hair transplant should be performed by specialists in the clinic where the patient has the operation. The patient should not do this procedure himself/herself in the first place.

In the following process, the patient should prefer to use antibacterial products with a PH value of 5.5, avoid using chemical products that come into contact with the hair, and most importantly, perform the washing process by massaging with light movements. Washing should be done in a sterile environment to avoid the risk of infection.


Crusting After Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is an aesthetic surgical procedure and as with any aesthetic surgical procedure, hair transplant has its own specific consequences. Crusting on the scalp after transplant is one of them.

Due to the small surgical incisions opened on the scalp during the operation, scaling occurs on the scalp due to the body’s defense mechanism and the secretion of platelets and a small amount of blood and body fluid flowing from the scalp during the operation.

While this is a natural and temporary part of the hair transplant operation, it is also an indication that the incisions have healed. Scabs should never be intervened with methods such as peeling. The most correct method to be applied in this process is to leave the softening lotion approved by the doctor on the scalp for 30 minutes and then wash it with chemical-free shampoo.

Warm water should be preferred in the washing process, soft towels or bandages should be used as much as possible in the drying process and ozone cream should be used. If cared for regularly and as it should be, the scabs will fall off on their own within 15 days. In cases where the scabs do not fall off despite all these, the teams performing the operation should be contacted.

Shock Loss After Hair Transplant

In the event called shock shedding after hair transplant treatment, approximately 80% of the grafts transplanted into the balding area temporarily fall out. Although shock shedding causes anxiety and fear in some patients, it is a natural part of the healing process after the hair transplant operation. The shock loss seen in the first 1-3 months ends on its own within 2 weeks.

It takes about 2 months for the hair to grow back. There are some issues that the patient should pay attention to while experiencing shock hair loss. These are

Shampoos and lotions approved by the doctor should be used after hair transplant treatment. Chemical-containing products should be avoided.

Substances that negatively affect the healing process such as alcohol and smoking should not be used.

Sports and exercises that may cause excessive sweating of the grafted area should be avoided.

In this process, foods high in vitamins and minerals should be consumed. Drink plenty of water.

Hospitalization Position

In order to minimize the edema and swelling that occur after hair transplant and to speed up the healing process, you should lie on your side or back, and a high pillow should be preferred. You can return to the old lying position 10 days after the operation.

Dietary Pattern

After the hair transplant operation, adopting a diet that contains vitamins and minerals in its decision affects the healing process positively by accelerating the healing process by nourishing the hair follicles.

In this process, diets applied before transplant should be interrupted. Likewise, eating and drinking should not be excessive, especially intense spicy foods should be avoided. Additional supplements and vitamins can be taken with the approval of the doctor.

To elaborate;

– Animal foods should not be consumed for a while

Certain cereal products should not be consumed for 15-20 days

Meals should be completed on time and without skipping

Avoid consumption of trans fats and junk foods

After hair transplant, foods rich in omega, zinc, iron, selenium and biotin should be consumed as they accelerate the healing of the scalp and contribute to the rapid and healthy growth of the hair follicles.

Foods containing vitamin B (green leafy plants, fish and meat varieties) that contribute to the healing of wounds should be consumed.

Apart from these, consumption of products containing vitamin E, biotin (vitamin H and B7) should not be neglected due to their benefits for the scalp and hair strands.

Alcohol, Smoking and Blood Thinners

In the process after hair transplant treatment, patients should act to protect their immune systems in order to survive the healing process in a healthy way. Alcohol and smoking are two substances known to negatively affect the immune system.

Therefore, the use of these substances should be suspended during this process. In addition, patients who have to use blood thinners due to chronic diseases or for other reasons should suspend the use of their medications under the supervision of a doctor.

Return to Routine Life After Hair Transplant

Patients who have undergone hair transplant treatment should rest at home for 1 week after the necessary controls and care are provided by the specialist doctor and hair transplant teams who perform the operation for three days. It is possible to return to routine life in a short time by following the recommendations given by the doctor.

After 1 week, you can return to work life. Shell shedding is completed in about 3 weeks. Although the healing of the wounds in the donor area where the hair grafts are taken varies from person to person, it is usually completed in 5 days. After 3 days, light exercises can be done.

Patients who are involved in heavy sports should take a break for 3 months. If the body does not exert itself and sweats, it may damage the hair follicles. Therefore, sexual intercourse should be avoided for the first 2 weeks. Patients who want to enter the sea or pool during this period should get a doctor’s approval.
