AFTER HAIR TRANSPLANT
Points to take into consideration at the post-transplantation stage;
1 ) When sleeping at night, make sure that the follicule of the transplanted hair do not contact the bed head, quilt or pillow or they can get injured. A hard and low pillow is recommended for this. You can sleep on your back neck, where the hair was taken from. It is not recommended to sleep face-down for two weeks, as this would increase the risk for the transplantation area to get into contact with the bed or pillow.
2 ) For two weeks, clothes that are comfortable to put on and take off (such as shirts, cardigans and zipped jumpers etc.) should be preferred. T,shirt, turtleneck jumper or atlet should not be preferred in order not to injure the transplantation area. The thing here is that; there should be no contact with the transplantation area for two weeks. Any contact may injure the follicule of the transplanted hair and we may lose that follicule.
3 ) Sports activities, Turkish bath, sauna, swimming, solarium and all hairdressing operations are not allowed for two weeks. These may injure the hair follicule and increase the risk for an infection.
4 ) Do not towel dry the transplantation area after washing your hair. Use hair-dryer.
5 ) For six months following the hair transplantation operation, have your hair on the transplantation area and on donor area (back of the neck) cut with scissors.
6 ) If you would like to use your hair very short following the hair transplantation operation, use razor after minimum six months.
7 ) If you would like to have your hair dyed, wait for minimum six months after the hair transplantation operation.
8 ) After the operation, you should be careful when washing your hair until the scars of the wounds fall down. Spread the shampoo all over your hair and message your scalp gently, without pressing hard.
9 ) After the operation, do not take alcohol and do not smoke for 15 days.
10 ) There might be a slight bleeding on the back of your neck after the operation. You don't need to worry.
