Long-term investment in Toronto Hair Transplant Surgery

Once you’ve decided to make a long-term investment in Toronto hair transplant surgery, taking excellent care of your health and your newly implanted grafts will be paramount. Our list of dos and don’ts can help you prepare and recover optimally. Check with your surgeon first as they’ll have specific instructions related to you and your situation.

Do this after hair transplant in Toronto:

1. Do wash your hair the evening and morning before surgery. Your surgeon may ask you to use a special shampoo. They also ask you to avoid applying conditioner or any leave-in treatments and styling products.

2. Do bring comfortable clothes you can relax in and a top that doesn’t need to be pulled over your head.

3. Do arrange for someone to drive you home afterward.

4. Do prepare your bed and rest areas to elevate your head roughly 30-45 degrees after surgery. For 1-2 weeks, you’ll need to keep your head up to minimize swelling. A recliner is useful to keep you comfortable too.

5. Do expect the transplanted hairs to shed 2 to 4 weeks after your hair transplant. Patients are sometimes shocked to see new hairs fall out, but rest-assured the transplanted follicles are the valuable part of each graft. Hairs shed to make way for further growth.

6. Do apply ice on your forehead if your surgeon permits. Sometimes hairline restoration surgery leads to temporary forehead swelling.

Best FUE

In Toronto

Celebrities have long been able to find the leading-edge, most effective solutions in the hair transplant industry, especially when it comes to FUE, and gain flawless results. Today, however, this hair restoration procedure can help men of all means with their hair loss in Toronto. Answer our few simple questions to see if you can be the next candidate for the FUE Hair Transplant.

Launch Candidate Survey

Don’t do the following after hair transplant surgery:

1. Don’t take Advil, Aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medications until your surgeon clears you. They can increase unwanted bruising and bleeding.

2. Don’t consume alcohol for a week before and after your procedure, and if you’re taking any narcotic pain medication.

3. Don’t smoke for at least two weeks before and after the procedure. Nicotine restricts blood flow, and you’ll want an abundant supply to help grafts take and establish themselves quickly.

4. Don’t bend over or lift anything heavy as this increases blood pressure in your scalp.

5. Don’t apply ice directly onto treatment areas, either the donor site or recipient zone.

6. Don’t pick at scabs or rub at your scalp. Formation of tiny scabs is a normal part of healing and scratching at them can disturb the delicate healing process of grafts underneath. They will eventually fall off on their own between 7-14 days.

7. Don’t expose your head to direct sunlight for the first two weeks after surgery. Once entirely healed, you can apply sunblock. For this reason, you may want to wait to plan a beach vacation after a hair transplant.

8. Don’t exercise for at least one week after surgery. Your doctor will tell you when it’s safe to resume aerobic activity.

9. Don’t dye your hair for a month after transplant, or until your surgeon clears you.

10. Don’t skip your follow up appointments. The meetings you have with your surgeon after hair transplant in Toronto are essential for a few reasons. They’ll assess your healing and ensure you don’t have any complications untreated in the crucial post-op phase. They’ll remind you about essential instructions, answer your questions, and reassure you that you’re on track to fabulous results.
