Post-hair transplant care involves simple post-operative instructions. After a week of gentle hair care, the patient can resume normal hair care. Most patients experience very little discomfort after an FUE hair transplant procedure. Sleeping on one pillow at night will help prevent swelling. The incisions for this delicate surgery are so small, that most people note very rapid healing.
With FUE or the Follicular Unit Extraction technique for hair transplant, minimal to no scarring is visible. This is quite different than the traditional “strip” method of hair transplantation where a long, linear cut is made. Stitches, pain and a residual scar remains.
After a hair transplant, the transplanted hair will begin to grow around 2 to 3 months after the procedure and continue for up to a year when you reach your final result. The progress is very gradual so no one will notice you had anything done. The results are natural and permanent.
