What Can You Expect After Your FUE in NJ?
Men and women who want to restore a full head of hair permanently, often choose FUE in NJ.
It stands for follicular unit extraction, and it’s the leading hair transplant method for a few reasons. The recovery is faster than ever, and the resultant scars- nearly invisible. Though it’s an efficient, natural-looking way to restore hair, the recovery process is important.
Minimally invasive surgical procedures require simple post-op care and a little time off, but it’s easy to be confused or overwhelmed with questions. If you find yourself wondering about your workout schedule, healing, or how to care for your hair grafts, you’re not alone. Here we’ll list plastic surgeon-approved answers to some of the most common questions.
You’ll be provided with a personalized program for care and healthy recovery by your surgeon. Most patients have a short course of antibiotics to take which reduces the already low risk of infection. To further protect your scalp while healing, you’ll be advised to stay away from pools and hot tubs until healed around day 7. For the first two days, you’ll not be allowed to wash your hair. We’ll show you how to rinse your scalp and apply soothing lotions if required. You’ll likely experience a little swelling in the first 5 days which sometimes spreads to the forehead. For this reason, most people prefer to take a minimum of 1 week off work.
When Can You Resume Your Regular Workouts?
Plenty of our NJ FUE clients are in great shape and maintaining fitness is a daily necessity. We appreciate the importance of workouts, but you will need to take just a little time off after your transplant. Increasing heart rate and blood pressure while your scalp is actively healing can cause swelling, bruising or bleeding. Most gyms will let you freeze a membership,and we suggest 2-3 weeks.
