Dr. VJs Cosmetic Surgery & Hair Transplantation: If you have undergone the Hair Transplant in Vizag or are planning to get one, then you must be careful about what you do after the surgery. Yes! You must be following the after-care regime as suggested by the doctor, otherwise, it will impact the final results and you won’t be able to see the natural-looking hair growth or it will take longer to see the desired hair growth. Like a patient always stressed about the Hair Transplant cost & how they will manage it, in the same manner, they need to talk to the doctor on what they should avoid after the treatment.
What to avoid after hair transplant treatment?
This is right after the surgery. As you will be under the effect of anesthesia so make sure that you ask someone to drive you back home. Ideally, you should not drive for at least 24 hours after the surgery or till the time the doctor has suggested you do so.
- Sleeping in the wrong position: Flat Position
This is a big ‘No’ after the surgery. Make sure that you keep your head elevated after the surgery. This way the swelling and numbness will reduce. You can keep pillows or prefer to keep the head at 45 degrees.
- Taking medications without guidance
The doctor is there, so you have to risk your health by taking the medications without reading the prescription. Make sure that you take only the dose doctor has asked you to take. In case, you are asked not to take the medications empty stomach then it is because it can lead to gastrointestinal problems.
- Not applying Ice
After the hair transplant treatment, it is important to apply ice on the forehead and not on the scalp. Doing so will help to reduce swelling and redness. You must apply it for 20 to 30 minutes. In case you experience a great amount of discomfort then you should consult the doctor.
- Dying your hair
You need to wait to dye your hair after the hair transplant surgery. All such treatment has chemicals in them which will do more harm. So, make sure that you wait for at least a few months to get the hair dye or talk to the doctor about when you can get it done.
- Not drinking water
Water is important for your health and you need to keep yourself hydrated all day long. Make sure that you drink at least 2 to 3 liters of water in a day and it will make a lot of difference in the final results.
- Worrying about hair fall
If you notice hair fall after the treatment, then it is normal and there is no need to stress the same. This is referred to as the shedding phase which happens 2 to 4 weeks after the surgery.
It is better to follow all the suggestions of your doctor to see the desired results and for smooth recovery.
