FUE in Miami Beach
Hair transplant surgery is a rapidly improving and evolving field. FUE in Miami Beach now requires minimal downtime and can produce virtually scarless results. There’s always a required recovery period after any cosmetic procedure, however. It’s essential to understand what your timeline will be like, what considerations there are for optimal results, and what you can do to make the process as smooth as possible.
Every patient wants to get back to their normal activities quickly, but realistic expectations will not only reduce stress, they may also improve your result. That’s because rushing into certain routines too fast could harm your hair grafts. We’ll outline a few restrictions to keep you safe and let you know how long your full results are expected to take.
Miami Beach FUE is minimally invasive
Using the strip method, or FUT, for hair transplant results in a linear scar on the scalp. This incision takes considerably longer to heal than the tiny, 1mm or less follicular unit punches our FUE approach creates. These micro-incisions close and heal fast, which means the downtime required is shorter, and scars will be far less visible too.
There’s still some temporary restriction, however. For roughly 5-7 days, you’ll be advised about careful hair rinsing techniques and asked to avoid regular washing. Until the incisions are completely healed, you’ll also need to avoid baths, hot tubs, pools and swimming at the beach. Miami FUE patients have a challenging time avoiding sunny, ocean activities, but the long-term benefits are well worth it. Exposure to possible infection is the reason to avoid most water, and you’ll also have to protect your scalp from UV exposure. Cover up when you go outside and avoid sun on your scalp until your surgeon gives you the all-clear.
