Can You Fly The Same Day As Your Miami FUE Procedure?
Plenty of our valued clients come to see us from around the country for FUE.
Miami is a world-renowned destination boasting exciting attractions, food, accommodations and sun. This makes it a great place to come and stay for a while, but for those whose busy schedules require them to fly in and out quickly, questions about post-procedure travel are important.
The answer is, yes, you can. In fact, you can leave immediately following the surgery and fly, drive or travel in whatever way suits you. Many people are surprised to hear this,but there are good reasons why this type of cosmetic surgery is safe for immediate travel.
You can go straight from the Nova Medical Hair Transplant to the airport because no general anesthetic is required for your treatment. In Miami, FUE (follicular unit extraction) is done with local numbing agents and very minimally invasive techniques. The reasons that many cosmetic procedures require a lengthy stay, activity restrictions and observation is that they require the patient to be put completely to sleep with a generalanesthetic, and they carry risks of bleeding or other complications.
The risk of blood clots in the legs is relatively low for most people but elevates slightly after a being under general anesthetic for a lengthy surgery. Aircraft pressure changes can exacerbate those risks. Again, this is not a concern for hair transplant clients.
