Benefits of modern hair transplants for long-distance patients
Although travelling for more invasive and complex surgical procedures can become a bit complicated or even risky, there has never been an easier time to travel for an FUE hair transplant. Provided that the clinic you choose is a top-tier hair transplant center with fully accredited surgical facilities and safety policies that exceed industry standards, then you know that you are receiving a safe, quality procedure, and the question remains, what care do you need afterward?
Luckily, the rapid recovery SmartGraft® FUE hair systems we use ensures the fastest, easiest recovery ever available after a hair transplant. The atraumatic technique possible through this precision robotic FUE device means that the hair graft extractions are minimally invasive, the recipient areas receive tiny, micro-implants of only 1-2 hairs at a time and the micro-incisions created heal to the point of being barely perceptible within a few days.
There are some simple restrictions for scalp contact, swimming and some other activities, but more clients can resume all regular activity shortly after their procedure, provided they don’t press, rub or otherwise harm their scalp. This means that flying and returning to work is reasonable for most people.
The minor swelling which is expected after a New Jersey FUE hair transplant, will last for a few days. The scalp may feel sensitive during this time and some clients choose to take an over-the-counter pain reliever, but this is not always necessary. There are no strong medications or sedatives required for your hair restoration transplant surgery, so you do not need to worry about the effect that these drugs would have on your ability to travel.
Furthermore, FUE ‘express’ hair transplant surgery is done with only local anesthetic injected to the scalp through a fine needle. The patient feels no discomfort at all during the procedure and afterward, there is no concern about recovery from general anesthetic, which is required for more invasive surgeries. This minimally invasive, micro-surgery uses tiny incisions, no scalpels stitches or staples, and this means no visible, obvious scarring to reveal your secret.
