After the hair transplant
The period after a professional hair transplant at Bank Of Hair
The biggest part of the treatment is the hair transplant and you can already look forward to the results. However, after the operation you have to pay attention to the self-treatment. Where there were bald patches before, new hair will grow after a few weeks, which you can be happy about. The wigs and toupees you had because of your hair loss will become a thing of the past and your new hair will give you a natural and healthy look on your head. The donor area will also recover in a short time and you will definitely not be left bald. You don’t have to think about scars because there are none in the end. The areas where hair has been transplanted are much more sensitive and need more time to heal. But here too, the scab formed by the dried blood begins to dissolve after just 10 days and you can return to your everyday life.
The healing times are usually fixed. In the first few days after the hair transplant, there may be slight bleeding in the donor area. This is normal until a scab crust forms. After the scab crust has formed, there is no more bleeding. You should always have a procedure done by a specialist. As long as the aftercare is done carefully and the process is done by an experienced team, the surgery will not leave any scars. At the end of the 12 months, you will have full and dense hair.
The following hints and advice
After the procedure, you will receive a cap that is pulled over the bandage on the head and neck to protect against external influences. You can take this cap off again at home. Do not touch the newly transplanted hair follicles. The evening after the operation it is advisable to sleep on your back if possible. The next day, the bandage on the back of the neck can be removed without hesitation. For the first five days, you should use the medication provided. Please follow the specialist’s instructions for this.
Alcohol, aspirin or tobacco should not be consumed during the first week after the operation. Some patients may experience slight swelling around the eyes and face after the hair transplant. The swelling will subside after 3 days. The swelling is caused by the anaesthesia and gravity. Taking the correct medication will reduce the swelling. You will be well recovered the day after the treatment. There will be no obstacle to your departure. After one month, you will be able to do sports again. Contact with water and the sun are also possible afterwards. Do not forget a hat or sunscreen.
Tips for proper hair care after professional hair transplantation
The first day after the transplant, the hair should be washed as instructed by your doctor. A lotion is applied and after 45 minutes it is gently rinsed off with clear lukewarm water and the hair should only be washed with a medicated shampoo. This process is usually repeated for 10 days. Hot water and vigorous rubbing or scratching should be avoided. Light massages with the fingertips on the scalp after the eighth day support the blood circulation of the skin, and thus the scab comes off more easily. Physical exertion, chemical additives such as hair gel or spray are not recommended for the first two weeks after treatment. If you follow the instructions, you can see the wonderful results of the transplant after only a few weeks and look forward to the results after only twelve months.
