First Three Days
Exercise should be avoided for the first 1-3 days after your hair transplant.
You should avoid any physical exertion as much as possible in the days after surgery, including working and needless strolling about the house. You will not be allowed to touch your new hair grafts at this time since they are in a sensitive state. We recommend that you avoid bending over and attempting to maintain your head above the level of your heart during this first period in order to minimize swelling and discomfort.
4 to 9 Days
Some very mild physical activity may be done if allowed by your doctor.
Light, non-strenuous activity like yoga or moderate strolling is normally permitted during this time period, but you should avoid jogging or aerobic exercise, which may produce excessive perspiration and a considerable rise in blood pressure.
If you detect an increase in swelling or discomfort during this period, you should restrict or discontinue your activity for a few more days to avoid further complications.
Cardiovascular activity, weight training, and the gym should be avoided until this point.
Ideally, your scalp should be free of scabs and edema at this point in the process. In the majority of situations, it will also be acceptable to engage in some kind of aerobic activity, as well as gym and weight training. However, if you have undergone FUT surgery, you should refrain from doing any neck-stretching activities for additional 6-8 weeks after the procedure.
10 to 14 Days
The donor location that is stitched up for 10-14 days following a FUT treatment will be removed if your surgeon has examined and verified it is safe to do so.
In the majority of instances, it will be safe to resume all intense activity within four weeks after your transplant, including weight lifting.
Although these are broad principles, you should always seek the counsel of your surgeon before making any decisions. We are here to give you complete information and assistance throughout the weeks, months, and years after your hair transplant procedure to ensure your desired results are achieved.
