To consider before your hair transplant
A hair transplant is a relatively simple procedure, but it is still a surgery and there are some things to consider before your hair transplant in order to make it as easy as possible for yourself and for those who perform the surgery. Here we have gathered some points to consider before your hair transplant.
No alcohol 48 hours before the hair transplant since alcohol is blood thinning and you can end up bleeding more during the transplant.
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.
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.
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.
Do not shave before you come to us. We would love to see how your hair grows naturally, if you have any swirls and so on. In that way we see can create a more natural result for your hair.
Bring a blouse or shirt that is easy to button up at the front so you do not have to pull anything over your head after your hair transplant.
