The Importance of Hair Transplant Post-Operative Aftercare

If you’re struggling from hair loss, you’ll be happy to know more and more people are choosing hair transplants or hair restoration procedures. These procedures are not only successful, but they’re also safe.

However, aftercare makes the most significant difference in the final results. If you’re considering hair transplant or restoration, it’s essential to understand the aftercare process.

For one, aftercare starts long before the surgery when we ask you all about your health and medical history. After all, this allows us to tailor the process to your needs. Post-operative care will also help us determine the most suitable treatments for your aftercare.

Today, we will discuss the possible side effects of the aftercare process and other essential questions patients often have. If you need any additional information or advice, make sure to bring it up in the initial consultation. Don’t hesitate to ask questions; you are allowed to understand what you’re getting into!

Hair Transplant Aftercare With Baruch Hair Loss Clinic

Here at the Baruch Hair Loss Clinic, we make post-operative care as straightforward as possible. All our patients are given a bespoke regime and instructions to follow, which makes things a lot easier.

To make sure you understand the aftercare process for FUE hair transplant or any other treatment, the instructions will be explained before the procedure.

Our clinic staff is dedicated to helping you understand and are comfortable with the process. We highly recommend you adhere to the aftercare do’s and don’ts so you can enjoy the best possible results.

The Hair Transplant Aftercare Package

The most important thing you need to do is stick to a 3 to the 7-day antibiotic regime after your hair transplant. This will keep the swelling to a minimum and reduce the risk of infection. Of course, some swelling is expected, but antibiotics will help a lot.

The surgeon will determine if you need any other medications by considering existing conditions, the cause of hair loss, and factors such as age. As you can imagine, this will be different for everyone. Some people may not need any additional prescriptions.

At Baruch Hair Loss Clinic, we will also give you specialist shampoos for your aftercare. This will protect the health and environment of the transplanted hair follicles so they can thrive. The staff will show you how to wash your hair during the aftercare process and use the products. This will minimise the risk of dislodged follicles.

If you forget anything, you can turn to the information pack we’ll provide for you. There are references for proper hair washing and care during the aftercare process. Some dryness and scabbing are to be expected on your scalp around four days after the surgery. That means the healing process is going well!

Washing your hair is essential to remove the dry skin and scabs so your scalp can go back to normal as soon as possible. That’s why it’s imperative to follow the instructions and use specialist shampoos. This will ensure faster and natural hair regrowth, precisely what we want.

FUE Hair Transplant Aftercare

Baruch Hair Loss Clinic offers a six-month aftercare hair acceleration course for patients of FUE hair transplants. We recommend the system because it increases graft growth by 300% and helps the scalp heal properly.

After a year, you’ll complete a full regrowth term. That means that your hair goes through a complete growth cycle. That’s the moment to evaluate the hair transplant results and determine how successful it has been.

Our medical staff will determine if you need further treatment based on this assessment. Usually, patients need to go through two complete cycles to achieve the desired final look. So, be patient! If you follow the guidelines well, you will be more than satisfied with the final results.

Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) Aftercare

Many of our patients at Baruch Hair Loss Clinic choose SMP as their hair restoration treatment. It’s the best option for severe hair loss, people who wear their hair short, and those who have shaved their head.

Scalp Micro-Pigmentation consists of using specially engineered ink that creates density. This is why it’s becoming such a popular option complementing hair transplants. The aftercare process for this is straightforward and relatively pain-free.

The target area of SMP will need time to heal, so you’ll have to be patient. You may be prescribed pain relief, and you will need to wash the area to get rid of any scabbing for 3 to 5 days. Your specialist will provide recommendations and a regime to follow, and you’ll have to avoid direct sunlight and sweating. The same is true after FUE hair transplants.

Regular Consultations

When you go through a hair transplant surgery, care is tailored to your needs. As such, you may need to return to the clinic after 3 to 6 months for an evaluation. Hair transplant aftercare is gentle, but some people can experience side effects or believe their regrowth is not following the provided hair growth timeline.

As a part of the FUE hair transplant aftercare from Baruch Hair Loss Clinic, you’ll have access to an advice line. You can use it whenever you have any questions or doubts. Trained specialists will be there to answer any questions or discuss any concerns you might have. They will also provide advice and schedule check-up appointments if you need them.
