What happens after FUE Hair Transplant Operation

It is quite natural to worry and be curious about what to expect after hair transplantation operation and try to learn more about what kind of changes you are going to experience. In this article, NOA MedCare informs its patients and visitors about after hair transplantation operation.


What to Expect After Hair Transplantation Operations?

It is very normal to feel mild pain, itching and swelling in after the operation for a few days. Our doctors will recommend regular treatments such as ice compresses, lotions and different types of medicine for these complications.


Right After the Operation

Our doctors will wrap the donor area with a bandage and provide you a special hairband in order to prevent all kinds of swelling on your face after the operation. Some minor scabs and red holes can be observed in the transplant and donor area. These scabs will completely heal within 15 days after the operation.


A Day After the Operation

You will be invited to our clinics for supplementary treatments such as PRP or laser treatment as well as for post-operational cleaning of the donor and transplant area. This day, our doctors will remove the bandage.


3 Days After the Operation

You will be allowed to wash your hair and in case you will have worries, you can visit our clinics to let our specialists perform the washing on behalf of you. Our doctors will recommend special lotions and shampoo as well as provide detailed guidance about how you need to wash your hair for the following 15 days. By washing your hair, you will speed up the recovery of scabs and your scalp.


5-7 Days After the Operation

Your transplanted hair will get stronger and the risk of falling them down will be greatly decreased. Even though you may feel intense itching, you still need to avoid all kinds of scratching for relief for the 4-5 days after the operation. The transplanted hair will start to fall naturally in this period and it will continue to fall for the following 2-3 months. However, don’t worry because this is completely natural and new hair will grow in the area.


15-30 Days After the Operation

Your image will look completely normal after 2-4 weeks from the operation. It will not be possible to figure out that you recently had a hair transplantation operation.


1-3 Months After the Operation

The majority of the transplanted hair will be lost during this period. In this way, new hair will start to grow.


4-6 Months After the Operation

Your new hair will rapidly start to grow during this period. You can easily notice the success and results of the hair transplantation operation during this time.


6-12 Months After the Operation

Your hair will continue to grow rapidly and you can easily notice that it becomes thicker.


12-18 Months After the Operation

This is the ultimate period that you can fully observe the results and success of the operation. You finally achieve the image that you would like to achieve. In some patients, it may take 20 months on the crown area to fully recover but in general 15 months will be enough time to observe the ultimate results on the front area.
