Recovery after a hair transplant

When scheduling a hair transplant, many of our patients ask about the postoperative period, that is, what their days will look like after surgery, as well as when they can return to their normal daily activities.


Can I expect complications after a hair transplant

During hair transplantation using the AHT method, the risk of infection is avoided, as all instruments are thrown away after use. Each subsequent patient will have their own new set of instruments, eliminating the possibility of infection.

In rare cases, swelling may occur on the forehead, which occurs as a result of the local anesthetic. This swelling can last for about three to four days after the hair transplant. The most important thing is that the swelling is not accompanied by a feeling of pain and that it can be alleviated by light massages of the forehead, from the central part to the periphery.


What the region will look like after a hair transplant

After the procedure, redness may occur as a result of skin irritation. This redness is easily relieved by using Betadine medicated shampoo. While using this shampoo, it is important that no other cosmetic products or shampoos are used on the head. Treatment with Betadine shampoo lasts 4 days, during which this preparation is used daily.


What does the postoperative period look like after a hair transplant

The AHT method of hair transplantation is the least invasive and is completed in just a few hours. Our patients leave the clinic with only one gauze, which is located on the region from where the hair is removed (donor part).

Already the next day, this gauze is removed and then the donor part can be washed.


When can I return to normal activities after hair transplant

The most common question regarding recovery after a hair transplant is how quickly you can return to normal activities, i.e. how many days you will have to miss from work.

The good news is that you can return to work the day after the intervention, that is, you will not have to miss work.

Of course, this applies to jobs that do not require excessive physical exertion. However, if you do a physically demanding job, we will provide you with instructions on how to manage the postoperative course, following which you will be able to return to your duties within a few days.
