After Hair Transplant Care
After hair transplant surgery, it is important to apply the After Hair Transplant Care recommendations for a successful result. This will affect your hair transplant result in a positive.
Especially in the first 4 days after hair transplantation, salty, spicy, hot sauce foods should not be consumed. These foods, as the effect of the drugs given to you after hair transplantation, cause excess water retention in the body and will cause swelling on your face. We recommend that you do not consume caffeinated beverages (cola, coffee, tea, etc.) for the first 2 days after hair transplant surgery. Caffeine will thin your blood and increase your risk of bleeding from the hair transplant area and the donor area, as your wound healing is not complete in the first 48 hours.
In hair transplant operations, patients are usually given antibiotics, painkillers and anti-edema drugs in order to spend the operation time comfortably and reduce the risk of infection with serum. These drugs given on the day of the operation are sufficient for that day. The hair transplant patient starts the drugs given the day after the operation. 1 day after the operation, you can start using your pain killer, anti-edema and antibiotic drugs as tablets. Doses of drugs vary from patient to patient.
