Recovery and Aftercare for Hair Transplants

Dr. Zandifar at Zandifar MD is an expert in hair transplants. He will educate you on the entire process, use professional knowledge and advanced technology to transplant your hair and make the recovery as short and stress-free as possible. Learn more about what to expect in the aftercare process following your hair transplant surgery.

What Is a Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant involves harvesting hair follicles from the back of your head and placing them in areas where your hair is thinning or balding. At Zandifar MD, we use a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, which removes hair follicles one at a time and transplants each one separately, leaving no linear scars on the back of the head. 

How Long Does It Take to Heal After a Hair Transplant

Avoid strenuous activities for the first couple of days. The FUE hair transplant procedure is minimally invasive, so you can expect to return to normal activities within a few days. Following the procedure, any pain or discomfort you feel can be managed using over-the-counter pain medication during your recovery period.

When Can I Touch My Hair Transplant?

During the first week to ten days following your hair transplant procedure, you must take extra care of your newly transplanted hair. Do not touch it, and especially do not scrub the transplanted area. Avoid direct shower pressure on that area of your head. Do not wear tight-fitting caps during the healing process for best results.

Can Transplanted Hair Fall Out Again?

It is possible that the newly transplanted hair may fall out 2-3 weeks after the procedure. Do not panic, as this is a normal part of hair regrowth. 

When Does the Hair Begin to Grow After a Transplant?

It takes a few months for the hair to grow and behave like natural hair. Be patient, and you will soon see new hair growth that you can be proud to show off!
