Are there any preparatory steps the patients can take in order to increase the chances of a successful hair transplant and reduce the period necessary for a complete recovery?
Generally, both follicular unit transplantation hair surgery and follicular unit extraction hair surgery are considered relatively simple surgical procedures that involve little risks for the health of the patient. Prior to the actual procedure, the medical specialist in charge of the operation will hold a detailed medical examination during which he will assess what the potential health risks are and what procedure best suits your individual needs. During the consultation, you will be able to tell the doctor what your expectations are and talk to him at great length about the limitations of the procedure in order for you to make an informed decision. The staff of the Renew Skin & Health Clinic strongly recommends that you be completely forthcoming during the consultation phase in order for us to get a better sense of what is the desired outcome and how we can make the procedure safer and more effective for you.
In order to increase the chance of a successful hair transplant procedure and reduce those of medical complications, we also advise the patients to avoid drinking alcohol for 3 days prior to the actual operation and not take any aspirin or aspirin-based medication for 7 days. It is also necessary to allow your hair to grow for at least 2 weeks in order to conceal any surgical scars that may appear as a result of the hair transplantation. In the morning before the surgical procedure, our hair specialists ask that you eat a reasonable breakfast and that you wash your hair in order to help them work more efficiently. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our specialists will inform you regarding the steps necessary for you to maximize the chances of a positive outcome when undergoing either the FUE hair transplant or FUT hair transplant.
