Important Things to Know After Hair Transplant

If you've recently undergone a hair transplant, congratulations on taking the first step towards a more confident you! At PHAEYDE Hair Transplant Clinic, we understand the significance of this journey and are committed to helping you achieve the best possible results. While the procedure itself is a crucial step, post-transplant care plays a pivotal role in ensuring your newly transplanted hair thrives. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the essential things you should know after a hair transplant to ensure a successful and satisfying outcome.

PHAEYDE Hair Transplant Clinic

Medications and Pain Management

You will be prescribed antibiotics for the first five days after your procedure to prevent infection. If you experience discomfort, our experts can recommend suitable pain relief medication. Always follow your doctor's instructions.

Healing Timelines

The donor and recipient areas heal at different rates:

Donor Area: Recovers faster, typically within 4-7 days. It may appear fully healed by the 4th or 5th day.

Recipient Area: Requires more time, generally 7-10 days for the primary healing phase. Grafts become secure after 4-5 days, but avoid forceful pulling.

Avoid Covering Your Head

You may gently cover your head with a thin hat or scarf 4-5 days after the procedure, but don't use thick hats or helmets until at least two weeks have passed.

Exercise and Physical Activity

While you can engage in light activities like darts or chess the day after the procedure, avoid strenuous exercise for two weeks. Share your exercise preferences with our team for tailored advice.

Specialized Post-Transplant Package

Every PHAEYDE patient receives a post-transplant care package containing shampoo, lotion, and a unique solution. These products are vital for scalp care in the weeks following the procedure.

Faster Healing with SHE Method

Choose PHAEYDE Clinic, and experience up to a 30% reduction in healing time, thanks to our minimally invasive SHE (Single Hair Extraction) method and specially formulated products.

Managing Swelling and Aesthetics

Expect some swelling around your forehead or eyes due to the anesthetic liquid. It's temporary and doesn't pose complications.

Scalp Hygiene

Refrain from washing your scalp for four days after the procedure, and avoid high water pressure during showers. Exclusively use our recommended products for at least one month.

Post-Procedure Recommendations: What to Keep in Mind

To ensure your hair transplant success, adhere to these guidelines:

  • No Smoking: Refrain from smoking for at least one week.
  • Dietary Restrictions: Avoid alcohol, coffee, black tea, carbonated drinks, and very spicy foods for one week.
  • Caution with Movements: Minimize sudden movements and bending over excessively.
  • Protect Your Scalp: Keep your sunglasses off your head.
  • Avoid Physical Activities: Steer clear of strenuous physical activity for one week.
  • No Hairdresser Visits: Wait one week before visiting your hairdresser.

  • UV Protection: Protect your scalp from bright sunshine and UV rays.
  • Avoid Physical Influences: Be cautious to avoid physical influences on the grafts.
  • No Scratching: Do not scratch the implanted area, as it may cause graft damage.

FAQ After Hair Transplant

Is It Okay to Scratch the Itchy Area?

Scratching is strictly forbidden, but we provide a special spray solution to cool your scalp and keep it clean, reducing discomfort without causing harm.

Can I Attend Public Events Shortly After the Procedure?

We recommend staying home for at least 72 hours after the procedure. You may venture out if you're comfortable with others seeing the early stages of your recovery. Avoid crowded events for a week.

Wait a minimum of two weeks before dyeing your hair, and consult your hairdresser regarding the type of dye used.

When Can I Visit the Hairdresser?

You can visit your hairdresser 7-10 days after the procedure, depending on your healing progress.

It's best to wait at least two weeks before visiting a tanning salon. Protect your scalp from UV exposure during this time.
