Post OP Care

Post-Operative Care
Post-surgery instructions should be carefully followed, and the grafts should be taken care of. Swelling of the scalp for a few days is common. The scalp remains tender after the surgery and pain medications need to be taken for several days. Bandages will have to be worn for a day or two. An anti-inflammatory or an antibiotic will be prescribed to be taken for a few days. The antibiotics are prescribed in order to prevent infection of the graft or the wound. Most people return to work after 2 to 5 days.

After the transplant, the grafts need to be kept wet repeatedly with saline for a few days. The hair has to be washed with diluted shampoo as per instructions so as not to disturb the grafts. In FUT, the care of the wound is crucial. The sutures are taken out after a week.

The hair which is transplanted would start to fall out within 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery. But, within a few months, new growth will start. Most people notice 60% new hair growth 6 to 9 months later.


Follow-Up
In order to ensure that the surgery has been successful, you will need to visit the doctor several times during the first month after the transplant. Medications will be administered as per requirements.

You might require a "touch-up" procedure to create natural-looking results after healing of the incisions, which will be completed by your doctor.

 

Prevention of Hair Loss
Although it is not possible to reverse the natural balding process but by exercising simple precautions, you can prevent hair damage that eventually leads to hair thinning. Following are a few precautions that should be observed in order to avoid hair loss: -

  • Choose Hair Products wisely: - Do not go after products with harmful chemicals, choose basic shampoo depending on your hair type with consultation with a dermatologist. Use soft hair brush or comb as they do not cause hair tear.
  • Eat Healthy Food: - Inculcate healthy eating habits and consume a lot of green leafy vegetables, nuts, fruits, cereals, etc. to provide proper nourishment to hair and increase their strength.
  • Stay Natural: - If possible avoid chemical treatments and let the hair remain in natural form. Stay away from chemical rich cosmetics.
  • Brush Properly: - Do not use hard brushes when the hair is wet, as they are most prone to damage when they are wet. Use combs when the hairs are wet otherwise, wait for them to dry.
  • Massage with Oils: - Use natural oils like coconut oil, make them luke warm and then massage gently into your scalp. Keep it for about an hour and then wash off with warm water. This will provide nourishment to the scalp and reduce hair fall.
  • Medication Induced Hair Fall: - If you have recently started taking some new medicines and are experiencing hair fall after that, you should immediately consult the symptoms with your doctor and get the medication changed.
