Before Haır Transplant Operatıon


Pre Operational Instructions

Before hair transplant operation , please let us know about your medical issues and medications you use.

If you have any health problems, chronic diseas, cardiac diseas please get a consultation from your doctor about your planned hair transplant operation.

Medications Before Operation

After you get approval from your primary hair transplant doctor, stop using Aspirin or any other drugs that might thin your blood seven days before hair transplantation.

It is important to discontinue the use of aspirin, ibuprofen, arthritis medication, or any vitamins for at least three days prior to and three days following your appointment. In particular, gingko biloba, vitamin E, ginger, garlic, and echinacea should be avoided.

These medications and supplements can thin the blood and lead to more post-treatment bleeding and swelling. If you are unsure about a particular medication, please call our office for further instructions.


Avoid Alcohol and Smoking

Avoid alcohol: Using alcohol may affect the efficiency of local anesthetics that doctor gives you before the operation. Avoid smoking: Smoking decreases blood flow to the scalp.

At least one day before and one week after your surgery we recommend you to avoid smoking; because smoking might cause blood vessel constriction & weak growth of your transplanted hair.

Alcoholic beverages should be completely avoided for about one week prior to your appointment. Excessive alcohol intake can result in increased bleeding, making the procedure more difficult to perform. We also recommend a full night’s sleep the night before your treatment.
