What is the right position for sleeping after a hair transplant?
After a hair transplant, you need to sleep on your back, facing up. You sleep with your head on a neck pillow to help keep your head elevated in the correct position.
Avoid tossing and turning or sleeping on your stomach. Many people find that sleeping in a recliner is a good way to sleep after a hair transplant, while making sure that their head does not come into contact with any surfaces.
You should also continue to use a neck pillow to hold your head in an elevated position. When sleeping after a hair transplant, you should avoid rapid movements or jolts that could damage the hair follicles.

The healing process
Even though modern DHI and FUE hair transplants (Direct Hair Implantation and Follicular Unit Extraction) are minimally invasive, any surgical procedure is a strain on the body.
