Hair Transplant Maintenance
If you’ve made the exciting decision to undergo a Miami hair transplant, congratulations- you’re one step closer to your dream hair.
The FUE technique offers a permanent solution to hair loss. As a result, this procedure can transform your appearance while also restoring your confidence. Although the cost is well worth it when you consider the permanent restoration it yields, patients investing their hairline are usually eager to do whatever it takes to optimize their results and boost their new hair growth.
Following your Miami hair transplant, you’ll be provided with a detailed list of post-operative instructions, including how to care for your incisions, wash your scalp, and which activities you should temporarily avoid. Luckily, unlike the traditional strip hair transplant, today’s FUE technique does not necessitate painful incisions, stitches or staples, which means it’s easy to care for your scalp post-operatively and you will not be left with a noticeable scar. However, to avoid infection, it’s imperative that you follow all aftercare instructions carefully when your new follicle grafts are their most delicate. Immediately following your transplant, you can shower with gentle water pressure, provided that you adhere to the instructions provided by your surgeon. Applying pressure directly to the scalp by rubbing, shampooing or using forceful water pressure should be avoided during the first two weeks, to enable the newly transplanted hair follicles to take root successfully. Two weeks following your procedure, you’ll be able to resume your routine when washing and styling your hair. Until then, your surgeon will let you know how to use topical treatments and spray on shampoo.
Patients may experience some swelling and sensitivity for the first few days following a hair transplant. People with sensitive skin or those with a history of skin allergies should keep a close eye on their scalp and inform their surgeon if a rash or redness occurs. Although it will be difficult to see your micro-incisions due to their size, it is still crucial to avoid exposing them to bacteria, so you reduce the risk of infection. That means swimming, hot tubs, and baths should be avoided during the recovery period.
