A hair transplant, if performed by a trained and experienced surgeon can last a lifetime. This is because the transplanted hair follicles are genetically programmed to keep growing. However, a patients age, lifestyle, hair type and extent of hair loss can affect how long a hair transplant will last.
The results of a good hair transplant are visibly long-lasting and are the most permanent form of hair restoration. The transplanted hair follicles take on the genetics from where they were transplanted and continue to keep growing.
There are a handful of potential side effects after a hair transplant. These include; infection, crust or pus drainage, scalp pain, itching, swelling, inflammation of hair follicles and bleeding. You will be given an aftercare pack with full instructions of what side effects you can expect and how to deal with any if they arise.
We advise 7-14 days depending on the size of the procedure and individual healing characteristics.
You will be advised of your personalised after care programme which will involve taking a 4 day course of antibiotics to ensure against infection and some medications to avoid post-operative swelling (optional) . All medications required, including a special shampoo, are prepared and dispensed with full instructions in an after care package which you will be given to take home with you after your procedure.
We advise no swimming for 14 days after the procedure especially in swimming pools as the chlorine content varies greatly depending on location.
Yes, we advise rest and recuperation for a week ideally. Please ensure you follow the after care directions and avoid being in direct sunlight for 14 days following the procedure.
Do not expose your head to strong direct sunlight or rain for the first 14 days following the procedure. We recommend you wear a hat / cap when going out in direct sunlight for two weeks post procedure.
Please ensure you also take steps to avoid sunburn on the head for two months post procedure.
We would advise you wait 7 days following the procedure to resume wearing protective headwear for activities like Motorcycling and Skiing.
We would advise that you avoid alcohol consumption for 7 days after your procedure. It is important you avoid alcohol the day after treatment as a minimum requirement.
A few nights after your procedure you should sleep with you your head elevated with a towel underneath.
