Important To Follow Our PostOp Instruction

Following our post-op instruction is crucial for minimal complication and the best outcome

  • Reducing Swelling and Bleeding: Physical exertion can increase blood pressure and heart rate, leading to swelling and potentially more bleeding at the transplant sites.
  • Preventing Graft Displacement: Strenuous activities or any action involving bending, lifting, or sudden movements might dislodge the newly transplanted hair follicles before they have a chance to securely attach to the scalp.
  • Avoiding Sweat and Dirt: Excessive sweating and exposure to dirt could increase the risk of infection in the delicate post-operative phase.
  • Ensuring Optimal Healing: Rest and limited physical activity help ensure that the body’s energy is focused on healing the transplant area, thereby supporting better graft survival and optimal results.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can enhance the success of your transplant and minimize complications.
