On this blog post, you will find detailed information about the first week after your hair transplant surgery. Among the questions asked to our clinic is about what to expect in the first week. So let’s take a closer look!
Please note that the recovery period after hair transplantation is an average of a year. This is a long-lasting process, but the results are pleasant. Let us simply explain what you will experience in the first week.
On the first day of hair transplantation, you will be discharged from the donor area (usually the neck) covered with a bandage.
The most important issue to pay attention to the first day is: sleep position.
If possible, the patient should meet the sleeping and resting needs in a position to be maintained in the seat, especially in the transplanted area is preserved and in the position prepared for bleeding in the donor area.
On the 2nd day of hair transplantation operation, there may be pain in the area and in the donor area. This is quite normal and very common.
While bleeding can be seen in the donor area, blood will be completely dried in the area where it is transplanted. The donor area is still bandaged.
Today is the day of washing your hair. You should note that the first wash after hair transplantation will be carried out by a specialist under the supervision of your doctor.
The washing style to be made until the shells in the area of hair transplantation are poured should be continued as it was done by the expert on the first day. Check out this video to learn more about the first wash process.
When you go to the clinic on day 3 after your hair transplantation surgery, bandage is removed from the donor area at first.
Then, a special solution will be applied to the donor area to soften the dried blood and then the washing process will begin.
On day 3, you must protect your head from the sun rays before and after the clinic visit.
The sleeping position should be the same today as the first 2 days.
The first 3 days after hair transplant are days that require extra sensitivity. After the touch with water with the first wash, the patient becomes more relaxed.
The head area should be washed regularly and carefully every day until it is freed from the shells in the hair transplantation area. You should also protect your head from direct sunlight.
The first week is the process of healthy hair follicles.
Therefore, the transplanted area should avoid movements such as impacts, hard movements, scrubbing, scratching or scratching.
Your specialist may recommend antibiotic therapy in the first week. This is planned as a 5 to 3 days regarding the patient himself.
In the first week the rapid recovery in the donor area may surprise you. At the end of the first week, hair loss is observed in the area where hair transplantation is performed and this is also completely normal.
