More and more men and women are choosing a hair transplant to recover lost hair for various reasons such as age, hormonal factors, stress or genetic causes. To date, the innovative FUE technique of micrografting of the hair follicle has become one of the most requested because of its efficiency and its simple and fast postoperative post-transplantation process.
In this post, we explain the precautions that must be taken into account after the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) process. This technique, which has already become popular around the world, relies on transplanting follicular units from the donor area (the most populated) to the receiving area, which is suffering from alopecia and needs to be covered with new hair. In one session, up to 5,000 follicular units are transferred (each follicular unit can contain 1 to 4 hair).
After performing the FUE technique, there is no need to stay in hospital. If it is true that there is the possibility of resting a few hours in the hospital room under observation for more serenity, the postoperative of this hair transplant is rather a series of recommendations that the patient must follow in the tranquility of his house, so that your process evolves in the usual way. These are some of the care after the hair transplant to consider:
After a hair transplant, it is recommended to wash the head with lukewarm water from the third day. The best way to do this is with subtle touches, without scraping and gently drying it with paper towels. Only from the first month, it is advisable to dry with a towel. It is also from the 30th day and not until the patient can bathe or submerge himself in the sea or pool.
In the donor area, it is possible to notice itching and irritation during the first days, so that a physiological saline solution can be applied to relieve them. In addition, in the donor area, you can apply an ointment or aloe vera gel as pure as possible.
The post-operative period of a FUE hair transplant is very short and hardly creates any scars, as other procedures can do like the FUSS technique that leaves a large scar.
