Pre and Post-Operative Instructions for FUE Hair Transplant

It is possible to obtain impressive and natural hair transplant surgery results with the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique used in hair transplant operation.

Hair transplant operation is mostly suitable for people between the ages of 21 and 60. However, the procedure to be performed depends on some personal factors; Pre- and post-operative instructions for FUE hair transplantation are determined within factors such as the age of the patient, hair texture, medical health status, routine medications used, scalp structure and density of hair follicles.

FUE Hair Transplant Pre-operative Instructions

  1. No vitamins and supplements should be taken 1 week before the procedure.
  2. Any aspirin or painkiller should be discontinued 1 week before.
  3. Alcohol is not taken 48 hours before the procedure.
  4. Smoking should be stopped 1 week before the procedure.
  5. You can take a shower the night before the procedure or the same morning.
  6. Avoid consuming any steroids and using cortisone creams.
  7. Before the procedure, the scalp can be washed with a mild shampoo.
  8. Exercise, jogging, jogging, or any strenuous activity should be avoided.
  9. In Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the doctor extracts individual hair follicles from healthy areas of the scalp and transplants them to bald spots.
  10. On the other hand, in the case of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), the doctor removes a few inches of skin graft from the donor area, divides it into small sections, and extracts hair follicles from these sections. They will then insert these follicles into small cuts in the recipient area, which takes about 4 to 6 hours to complete.

FUE Hair Transplantation Post-Surgery Instructions

  1. Apply the lotion and shampoo given by the doctor for 10 days after the procedure.
  2. After 10 days, a regular washing regimen and hair care can be done.
  3. After the procedure, alcohol should be avoided for 3 days and smoking for two weeks.
  4. Do not engage in heavy physical activities for the first month after the operation.
  5. Do not enter chlorinated swimming pools for the first 14 days.
  6. Bandages should be used for the first few days after surgery to protect the surgical area.
  7. Two days after the procedure, post-hair transplant care includes bathing and cleaning the donor area.
  8. Towels should not be used while drying the hair.

My Experience with Surgery TR has been great up to date. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of my Hair Transplant done October 29/30 2021. Communication leading into the trip was great. Damla answered all my questions throughout the process, which was stretched out thru throughout the course of almost 1 yr. Transfer from Airport was great. Hotel was also good. Lots of other patients in the same hotel. Sercan was then assigned to be our translator and support. He was great, communication could be difficult as the Dr and his team spoke very little English. The transfers to the hospital were done by taxi service. Which could of been a little better organized. Sercan also had other clients which he was translating for in different parts of the city so the organizing was hard and understandable for the circumstances. My procedure(s) seemed to go good and again time will tell. Overall Istanbul was an amazing experience and I would love to come back 1 day for a vacation. Thank you surgery TR and Dr Murat and his team.
