How to sleep after your hair transplant
For the first time after your hair transplant, it is important that nothing gets into your transplant area to impede healing or damage the newly transplanted hair follicles.
When you sleep, you must lie in a way that avoids the risk of lying on your transplant site, which can be uncomfortable for many people. We’ve summarised how you should think when you sleep below.Download instruction sheet
1. Avoid contact with the newly transplanted area
The most important thing about how you choose to sleep is that the newly transplanted area does not come into contact with anything.
How much you have to sit up when you sleep depends on which part of your head has been operated on.
In case of a hair transplant on the crown, we recommend a neck pillow. If you have done a hair transplant on the temples, stacked pillows may suffice.
2. If you move around a lot in your sleep
If you move around a lot in your sleep, we recommend rolling up towels or placing pillows next to you on each side for arm support.
