Pre Hair Transplant Care

Good things happen when you do small things right. And you can see the truth of this statement during your hair loss treatment as adhering to the regimen suggested by your doctor will help in delivering an outstanding clinical outcome. We have compiled a list of questions that are often asked by patients from us. Since there is a remarkable degree of similarity in the questions posed to us; answering them here will help us standardize our patient selection and counselling process. We will get the right set of patients and you will get the right treatment plan that suits your needs perfectly.

What are the minor and major lifestyle modifications I need to do before undergoing hair transplant surgery?

Concealing any information may be dangerous here and if you are taking any of the following medications that act as blood thinners or beta blockers in the body, inform your trichologist cosmetologist at once:

  • Plavix
  • Coumadin
  • Heparin
  •  Atenololol (beta blockers)
  • Propranolol (beta blockers)

The above medications may prove to be a contra-indication to surgery. The beta blocker needs to be changed to regulate heart rate. Heart and blood pressure medications can be taken without any interruption.

  • Multi-vitamins need to be avoided especially vitamin b and d as they can accelerate haemmaroge in blood vessels
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs listed below need to be stopped and resumed three days
  •  Aspirin
  •  Advil
  • Alka-seltzer
  • Bufferin
  • Excedrin
  • Empirin
  • Nu-prin
  • Motrin
  • ibuprofen

Can I get a haircut before the surgery in hot and humid summers?

Getting a hair-cut just two weeks is not advisable. Still if it is needed, your hair should be kept half an inch in terms of length. Leaving them longer, makes the task of the doctor better as they can be trimmed later on.

I have been asked to wean away from smoking for a few months. Why?

Smoking reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood as the carbon monoxide stopped blood flow to vessels. Wounds take time to heal and it is best avoided.

What about alcohol?

It can reduce the heat rate and therefore best avoided for compete recovery. Coffee, tea, caffeinated beverages can increase bleeding and are best avoided.

Any precautions to be taken on the D-DAY?

  • Yes avoid using gels, sprays but make sure to shampoo your hair thoroughly. Wear loose comfortable clothing that aids in movement and creates stress.
  • Avoid wearing cologne or perfume and eat a heavy breakfast as the surgical procedure can cost the entire day, depending on the severity of the conduction.
  • Certain local anaesthetics or oral medications may be given to you to put you I a state of twilight sedation. Hence do not make the mistake of driving back yourself.
  • Sometimes, hair fall happens due to stress and stress medications can make you feel drowsy in the coming days.
  • Bandages wrapped on the day of the surgery can be removed before taking a bath the next day.

Just keep the above pointer in mind and you will have a successful surgical procedure behind you.
