Surgical hair restoration with FUE

After visiting the Nova Medical hair transplant clinic in Toronto, will you be able to hop on a plane? Perhaps you flew in from out of province, or even outside of Canada for the hair transplant cost and expertise you want. Even though surgical hair restoration with FUE ( follicular unit extraction) is minimally invasive, it’s still a surgery that comes with risks and a few restrictions while recovering. If you’re concerned about what you will or will not be permitted to do after, read on.

Can You Book a Flight After Surgery?

You may be surprised to learn there is no restriction on flying after your hair transplant in Toronto. You can drive, fly or walk, but here’s what you can’t do: swim, bike or run.

Air travel concerns are understandable because, after some cosmetic surgery procedures, you’ll be advised to avoid flying for a time. As well, following lengthy surgery under general anaesthetic, patients are often cautioned against flying due to blood clot risks. Because this type of anaesthesia is not required for a hair transplant, and the process is much less invasive, the risks you face while flying have more to do with pressure on the sensitive donor region at the back of your head or getting accidentally hit with an overhead bag.

You may not be conscious of how often you bump your head in everyday life, and you’ll need to be vigilant about protection after your procedure, no matter where or how you travel.

The aircraft cabin will be pressurized at altitude, and the overall pressure is less than on the ground. That means your swelling could be slightly worse, and if you have an extensive implant and donor incisions, they may feel more sensitive. Take your post-op pain medication and ensure you don’t consume any unnecessary blood thinners. That includes many NSAID medications and alcohol. As tempting as it is to indulge on the flight, we suggest sticking with non-alcoholic beverages to avoid bleeding easily.

Consider your comfort and stress levels. Travelling can be stressful, and tight schedules combined with physical discomfort or anxiety don’t help. If you’ve travelled to your Toronto hair transplant appointment, you may find it hard to unwind and relax, during and after. Taking an extra day to recuperate and discuss post-op care with your surgeon can help you catch up on rest and de-stress.

Given comfort concerns, you may choose to stay in a hotel near the hair transplant clinic for a day or two before you leave. Talk to your surgeon about the necessary precautions and those that are up to you.

** Keep in mind that if you’re planning to fly away on vacation after a hair transplant, you’ll definitely need to discuss what you can and can’t do while recovering to ensure your plans aren’t derailed.
