Before hair transplant

In the first examination before hair transplantation, the drugs used by the patient are diagnosed and it is determined whether these drugs will prevent the transplantation. One week before hair transplantation, the patient should stop consuming alcohol and cigarettes. Alcohol and cigarettes affect blood flow at the vascular level due to the chemicals they contain; It prevents post-operative healing and the adaptation of the transplanted follicles and their proliferation.

Since there will be dressing and bandage on the neck after hair transplantation, it is recommended to choose a comfortable outfit that can be opened from the front. Patients who will prefer t-shirts should prefer a wide neck piece of clothing.

It is recommended that you stop consuming caffeine-containing beverages such as green tea and coffee one week before the hair transplant.

One week before the hair transplant operation, you should stop using anticoagulant drugs and vitamin pills because these drugs can cause an increase in bleeding while the hair transplant canal is opened.

One month before the operation, you should stop applying lotion to your scalp and hair, and you should not apply hair styling products such as gel and spray to your clean hair that you washed on the day of the operation.

Do not forget to have breakfast before coming to the hair transplant procedure. If your operation is in the afternoon, it would be beneficial to have a light lunch before your arrival.

Take care not to drive after hair transplantation.
