Hair Transplant: After the operation
Small crusts (the size of a pin head) will form on the skin and then spontaneously detach.
After a month, most of the hair on the grafts falls.
The transplanted hair will therefore fall at first, then start to grow 2 to 3 months after the procedure.
It will take 3 to 4 months to get an idea of the outcome.
Expect a period of professional downtime of 2 to 5 days, depending on your activity.
During the two weeks following the procedure, avoid:
Exposure to the sun (wear a hat in case of intense sunshine);
Sea baths, swimming pool, sauna, Hammam;
Sports, including water sports, and violent efforts;
Drying in the hairdryer (hot air);
Coloring and styling products.
The skull can be washed from the day after the procedure using mild shampoo or Isobétadine shampoo. However, a few precautions are necessary:
The treated area should not be exposed to water for more than one minute in the first few days,
The shower jet should not directly touch the scalp.
The hair will be wiped gently with a clean towel, without rubbing, and will have to dry in the open air.
The doctor will eventually prescribe a disinfectant spray, to be applied once or twice a day on the scars.
