During the first two days of healing, you will have to sleep in a sitting position and you may bleed a little from the donation area, but you should be careful with the newly transplanted hair follicles.
– What was difficult with the healing was getting rid of all the plasma and clotted blood but I flushed it out with water. I was worried about an infection but it never happened.
You have to be patient while waiting for the final result
It was a bit slow for the hair to heal during the first months, but now after a year you can see clear results. Madeleine has also done several post-treatments with PRP, which is included in the price of a hair transplant.

She thinks it has gone quickly and smoothly. Even if you get a little impatient to see results, Madeleine thinks it’s important to point out that you should think about how little hair you had before for maybe 5 to 10 years. It won’t be good in a week, so you have to be patient as the final result will show after 12-18 months.
– I wasn’t really worried even though it took time and even my hairdresser said that my hair grew nicely after the procedure and just got denser and denser. I didn’t feel that a hair transplant was as difficult for me because the procedure itself felt more medical than aesthetic.
There is help for women
All in all, Madeleine is satisfied and would recommend other women to have a hair transplant if their hair loss makes them feel bad. She is aware that it can be a bit difficult to talk about but you can get help as a woman with a result that is good in the end. Madeleine’s job has also allowed her to conceal her hair transplant with a surgical cap while her hair has been growing out.
– I’ve told people and several colleagues want to come and also send their husbands here,” she says, laughing.
