What should I do post hair transplantation process? Can transplanted hair grow immediately? How can I speed up hair growth after hair transplant?

After Hair Transplantation

The donor area is bandaged after the operation. The transplanted area is not bandaged. You do not need to stay in the hospital after the operation. Therefore, you can return home or hotel immediately.

After the operation, itching, redness and crusting occur in the transplanted area. These will disappear in about 2 weeks.

Swelling After Hair Transplantation: Swelling on the head and face can be seen in the first few days after hair transplantation. Ice compress is good for swelling. There is no need to use a special medication for swelling. The swelling will disappear spontaneously within 4-5 days.

Itching After Hair Transplantation: Itching is a part of healing. This feeling can last for a few days. During this time, you should not scratch the transplanted area. This causes damage to the newly transplanted hair follicles.

Burning Sensation After Hair Transplantation: A burning sensation may occur 3 to 4 after the operation. You can use the moisturizing solution provided by your doctor for this.
