The Timeline Before A Hair Transplant In New Jersey

For those who take the exciting step toward restored hair, the days leading up to their New Jersey hair transplant can be a bit nerve-wracking. There’s no need to worry once you’ve chosen a reputable and experienced hair transplant surgeon. Now, your preparation on the day of your procedure will be fairly straightforward. The following are a few things to keep in mind for a stress-free experience.

Your surgeon will likely advise you to avoid a few things in the weeks leading up to surgery. These may include discontinuing supplements or medications and avoiding the application of hair dye. The day of your procedure there’s just a few more things you can’t do:don’t apply conditioner after you wash your hair and don’t put on styling products or fibre treatments like Topik. You’ll need to show up with a clean, bare scalp.

Avoid Eating And Drinking After Midnight

If your procedure is done using IV sedation and local anesthetic, you’ll be advised to avoid eating after midnight and only to drink clear fluids. A Food in the stomach while sedated is a safety issue. Ask your surgeon what type of anesthetic you’ll have and if this applies to you.

Avoid drinking alcoholthe day of, and before treatment. Thinning effects on your blood that lead to excess bleeding or interference with medication could pose a problem.

Hair Transplant Recovery

Wear Something Comfy!

Many people don’t consider this, but if your session will take a standard 6-8 hours, that’s a long time to be reclining in something tight or uncomfortable. We recommend sweats, Pyjamas or other soft clothing and wear a shirt that buttons or zips.

Bring Relaxing Entertainment

You can listen to music, watch TV or nap during your treatment. The experience can be very relaxing, and most people don’t describe it as unpleasant.

Enlist The Help Of Your Friends

Because you don’t need general anesthetic that puts you completely to sleep, you get to skip the after-effects of that which would make you dizzy for some time. You can drive home, but we recommend that you ask a friend or family member to drive you just because you may be distracted or feel fatigued from your procedure.

Make Sure You Have At Least A Week Off Work

Today’s FUE treatments can deliver the fastest and easiest hair transplant recovery ever. However, you’ll still need to take at least 3-5 days off, preferably a bit more. If your daily tasks require physical strain, or even if you just want to ensure some privacy while you heal, it’s helpful to allow two weeks for all swelling to dissipate and incisions to heal.
