Alcohol

No alcohol 48 hours before the hair transplant since alcohol is blood thinning and you can end up bleeding more during the transplant.

Tobacco

Tobacco is bad for the body’s natural healing process and it significantly affects the result of the hair transplant. Therefore, it is important that you start lowering the amount of smoking and usage of snus (chew tobacco) a week before the operation. Do not smoke or use snus 48 hours before your surgery.

Coffee

Caffeine acts as a blood thinner in the same way that snus does. Therefore, coffee should not be consumed up to 48 hours before surgery.

Blood-thinning medication

Do not take blood-thinning medication, such as Ibuprofen, Omega 3 or acetylsalicylic acid (in Aspirin) before the hair transplant. It will cause you to bleed much more than usual.

A hair transplant takes time

It takes time to undergo a hair transplant. Do not book in anything else during the day. It may also be nice for you to have time off for the first few days after your hair transplant.
