Since hair follicles will be needed, extra attention should be paid to them. 

It will be healthier for you to quit smoking 3 days before the hair transplant. If you have trouble quitting smoking, you can reduce it and make your process easier. This detail is important as smoking affects both the operation and the healing process. You should not use any blood thinners before hair transplantation. It is recommended not to use these drugs for 1 week after hair transplantation. You should stop consuming alcohol 1 week before the hair transplant. If you have medicines, creams and lotions for your hair and scalp, you should stop using them 30 days before. You should also stay away from vitamins B and E and herbal teas that contain these vitamins. These vitamins can cause extra bleeding during the operation. One week before the operation, you should take a break from exercises that require effort such as sports and cardio. Before the hair transplant, you should not take coffee and drinks containing high cafeine.

What Should You Do On the Day of Operation?

After you stop using blood thinners such as smoking, alcohol and aspirin before hair transplantation, you gradually start to prepare yourself for the operation. Since this process is both a mental and a physical process, you start to pay attention to the process before the operation. Although the hair transplant operation varies according to the transplantation area and the number of grafts, on average, an operation takes between 6 and 7 hours. Therefore, comfortable clothes such as tracksuits should be preferred in order to be more comfortable during the operation process. Apart from the sweatpants, it will be more comfortable for you to wear a blouse, shirt or t-shirt that can be easily put on and off for the operation and will prevent damage to the transplanted area.

At the same time, it will be beneficial for you to take a shower before coming to the hair tran splant because water should not touch the area where the hair transplantation is performed for an extra 3 days after the operation. Although the operation is painless, driving after a 7-hour operation may force you to drive, so if you are coming to the operation by car before the hair transplantation, it will be useful to have someone who can drive the car on your return. Generally, experts recommend that people do not drive for 6 hours after the operation.

Before hair transplantation, there are some points that you should pay attention to during the operation as well as. You should definitely eat before coming to the operation. It will be in your best interest to prefer light but filling foods instead of heavy and fatty meals. In other words, you should definitely have breakfast
and have a light lunch to be full during the operation. You should not chew gum, play with the phone or talk too much during hair transplantation.

What Awaits You After Hair Transplant?

After the hair transplant operation, it is a difficult and painstaking process as before the hair transplant. Extra attention should be paid to the area where hair transplantation is performed, so the person should pay attention even to the pillow they use.

Since 48 hours after hair transplantation is critical, the patient should rest and return to his daily life after 2 days because this process is a period when the hair follicles settle in the problematic area and any contact should be avoided. The person should not consume alcohol and cigarettes in the same way as the ones that should be
applied before hair transplantation for 3 days after the operation, should not take blood thinners and should avoid work and activities that require effort. Apart from this, the area where the hair transplantation is performed should not be exposed to sunlight for 3 days.
