Is FUE in Toronto Safe?

All cosmetic procedures that involve an invasive element, come with precautions for healing. That’s because when you break the skin’s surface, the potential for infection exists. FUE in Toronto is a safe, rapid recovery hair restoration procedure when carried out by an experienced surgeon. The procedure itself, the facilities, and your preparation will all help to mitigate risks like bleeding or infection. Recovery from FUE comes with a set of instructions that are very much in the patient’s hands. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that you continue to heal safely and avoid unnecessary problems in the weeks after. One of the activity restrictions in place for just a short while is swimming. We’ll explain why you’ll need to wait a few weeks before swimming after a hair transplant in Toronto

Water contact with a healing scalp

Your Toronto FUE surgeon will advise you to rinse your scalp with clean water after surgery and not to intervene in any other way for the first week. This is the most critical phase while tiny openings in the skin exist, and each little follicle graft is establishing its blood supply in the area. Small scabs will form around the extraction sites at the back of the head and at the recipient incision sites. Until these scabs have naturally sloughed off and the skin underneath is completely closed, it’s not safe to soak them.

That’s why no baths are allowed, and no hot tubs, swimming pools or ocean swimming either. In addition, all those water sources contain loads of bacteria. This is how infections begin. Introducing your unhealed incisions to bacteria- even from your own bath- could be disastrous.

Launch Candidate Survey

Doctors used to recommend swimming in the ocean after a hair surgery because of the high salt content. Salt is known to disinfect wounds and help speed healing. However, it turns out pollution levels and high bacterial load outrank any potential benefits. As well, keep in mind that chlorine, believed to kill harmful bacteria in pools, is not a guaranteed way to prevent infection in wounds. If the bacteria don’t get you, the harsh chlorine can irritate and damage delicate tissue.

Swimming can be strenuous

A secondary reason why swimming needs to wait- even after the scabs have healed in some cases- is that swimming can be great aerobic activity. For those who like to do laps, there are few better workouts, however you’ll be advised to keep your blood pressure and heart rate steady for 2-3 weeks after FUE in Toronto. Raising pressure in tiny vessels through cardio workouts could harm the delicate connections made by follicle grafts. Sometimes a spike in blood pressure, bending over, or heavy lifting can lead to bleeding and graft damage due to pressure.

In general, use your best judgement when participating in all sports and strenuous activities again after you heal. Actions which put direct pressure on the head or expose you to sunburn could still harm you and lead to scarring or unwanted effects long after you heal.
