After Hair Transplant Process

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that eliminates hair loss in people. This process is done in many different techniques, and these different techniques have their own healing processes. For example, DHI and FUE hair transplantation techniques are different from each other, and their healing processes are also different from each other. Therefore, a person who will have a hair transplant treatment should know everything about the operation process. In this content, we will give you detailed information about hair transplant post op.

After hair transplantation, you must protect your hair and be careful about certain situations. In order for your hair transplant treatment to get a good result, you should follow all the recommendations after the operation. You should avoid factors that affect the success of your treatment. Otherwise, you may get bad results.

First Week: Crusting occurs in your hair. These redness will go away in time. There will be spills during washing, you don’t need to worry because these spills are not hair follicles.

10 Day: The crusts in your hair begin to fall. You can do this yourself under the supervision of a doctor.

Week 2: After the whole shedding process is over, you can change your sleeping position and sleep in a normal position.

1 Months: In this process, your hair transplant treatment will never be obvious. Your healing begins to be complete, but you still need to protect yourself from the blow.

Things to Avoid After Hair Transplant Procedure

There are some points that you should avoid in order to get a successful result after the hair transplant operation. Patients should pay attention to the points in the following items.

Sleep Position

Sleeping position is an important part of hair transplant post op. Especially in the first 24 hours after hair transplantation, the patient should pay extra attention during sleep for at least one week, because we may damage our donor area unknowingly during sleep.

Therefore, you should sleep in the supine position after hair transplantation. Your donor area is at risk of swelling for the three and four nights. You can reduce swelling by sleeping in a high position. Your recovery may be faster.


After hair transplantation, you should protect your hair from harmful sunlights. The redness that will occur on your scalp after the treatment may have a permanent risk when it comes into contact with the sun. Sunlights do not directly damage the hair, but can cause great damage to the skin.

You can protect your hair from harmful sunlights by wearing a hat until your hair grows.

Smoke & Alcohol

Patients should not smoke or use alcohol for the first week after hair transplantation. Because the recovery period is prolonged and healthy results are not obtained. After the patient drinks alcohol, blood pressure, low blood sugar and respiratory problems may occur in the body. This may cause post-treatment congestion and bleeding.

Likewise, smoking after the procedure affects the success of the procedure. Smoking may carry the risk of infection after the procedure. It affects the body's immune system and you may have a longer recovery period.


Another thing that patients wonder about in hair transplant post op is the bathing process. Patients can take a bath after hair transplantation, but they should be very careful with the scalp. They can gently wash the hair areas 48 hours after the procedure, but the hair should be washed without water pressure. After a week, you can take a bath comfortably.

Sport & Physical Activities

Exercise is very important for the human body. However, it may be inconvenient to exercise after important operations such as hair transplantation. You should avoid doing heavy exercises for at least 10 days after hair transplantation, this may cause a trauma. With one wrong move, you can damage your hair area.


You should avoid swimming after the operation. It may take time for your hair grafts and donor area to heal, so you should wait 2 to 4 weeks to swim. Otherwise, your risk of infection increases.

Therefore, patient should follow the instructions given by doctor and follow the healing processes.
