What Happens When You Exercise?
When you get your heart rate up as you jog, work out at the gym, or even during sex, blood pressure elevates, and you’ll feel that extra pressure is pumping through your extremities and your scalp. Bending over is a no-no post-op, and so is increasing pressure to the scalp with elevated BP.
During the first two weeks at home, we recommend that any strenuous activity you usually do for work be put on hold and that you be conscious of activity around the house such as cleaning and lifting heavy objects. Any of these actions can send increased blood pumping to your head and scalp. This is a great time to ask for a favour or hire help so you can take it easy and recuperate in peace.
If you workout before your surgeon clears you, you could experience bleeding, or even push out some grafts. The short-term patience required to see excellent long term results you’ve invested in will be well worth it.
You’ll likely be allowed to return to working out sometime between 10-14 days after your NJ hair transplant.
