1. Avoid contact with the newly transplanted area

The most important thing about sleeping is that the newly transplanted area can’t come into contact with anything. How much you have to sit up when you sleep depends on which part of the head was operated on. For a hair transplant on the crown we recommend a neck pillow. If you have done a hair transplant on the temples, stacked pillows can be enough.

2. If you move around a lot in your sleep

If you move around a lot in your sleep, we recommend that you roll up towels or place pillows next to you on each side as armrests.
