How to be Prepared For the surgery
Before the hair transplant procedure (and during the consult stages of the arrangement), please let us know about any medical issues and medications you use.
If you have any health problems, please seek prior consultation from your doctor about your planned hair transplantation operation. We will also provide insight, but it should be considered in tandem with your primary physician’s or dermatologist’s input.
Avoid Blood-Thinning Medications
Three days before hair transplantation, stop using Aspirin or any other drugs that might thin your blood.
Avoid Alcohol, Smoking and Caffeine
Avoid alcohol and caffeine the day before your procedure. Using both may affect the efficiency of local anesthetics that doctors give you before the operation.
Smoking decreases blood flow to the scalp by constricting blood vessels and limiting nutrient delivery to the follicles. For this reason, smoking should also be avoided the day before the procedure. You should further avoid smoking for the first week after your surgery, because this is when it is most imperative for your follicles to receive adequate nutrition. (To that note, it is also good to quit smoking permanently in order to improve the health and density of your hair).
For the Operation Day
It should not be forgotten that a hair transplant operations take an average of 4-8 hours depending on their characteristics.
Clothes and personal hygiene
We recommend that you wear a buttoned shirt or a wide-collar t-shirt, so that you don’t drag the shirt over your scalp. This is a good habit for the weeks following the procedure, too.
In general, wear comfortable clothing during the operation, because it takes nearly six hours, but depends entirely on the number of grafts you are receiving.
Take a shower and take care of your personal hygiene the morning of the operation. Do not have any styling products in your hair. Come to the operation well rested and having eaten breakfast. Avoid any caffeine.
During the pre-operative consultation, the doctor determines whether the hair follicle transfer is appropriate by checking the pattern, type, severity of hair loss, flexibility of the scalp and hair density in the donor area, and develops a plan to obtain the most appropriate hair restoration.
