Already on the day after the treatment, most of our patients are mentally fit again. However, it is a wise decision to give your body a few days of rest after the transplant so that it can regenerate. On the fourth day you can wear a cap or other loose headgear, provided that the crusts have healed. You can go to work and move as usual.
Ten days after the procedure you can use hair gel or hair spray and a hair dryer to dry your hair.
During the first three weeks, avoid at all costs
- direct sunlight
- alcohol consumption
- Scraping the scalp
- strenuous physical work
- – stress
- – sexual activities
- the romping around in your sleep – find a comfortable sleeping position for you
- Sweat or dirt in the hair – they can disturb the healing process and lead to an infection with a lot of bad luck.
- hair growth control
Our doctors informed them that after about one month the implanted hair will fall out because the hair roots have suffered a lack of nutrients during the extraction. The existing hairs do not survive this. They fall out. After a certain rest period, the hair roots recover. Normally the new hairs start to grow after about 3 months and then remain intact.
An own hair transplant is only successful if the implanted hair grows independently. If, after this waiting period, you notice that the result is not yet satisfactory, another hair transplant can be performed to fill in any gaps or increase hair density. However, this is rarely necessary. After half a year, hair growth usually adjusts and is more even in all areas. But only after 12 months does the final result of your hair transplantation become apparent, or usually only after 13 to 15 months, when the treatment has taken place on the back of the head.
