Recovery from hair restoration
Manhattan hair restoration clients do not generally experience any discomfort. Hair transplantation is considered one of the most gentle and non-invasive outpatient procedures. After surgery, do not wash your hair for at least 24-48 hours, as this may damage the new follicles. It’s also a good idea to avoid excess exposure to the sun, and to keep rigorous exercise at a minimum for the first week or two of recovery. To minimize the risk of infection or irritation, take care not to pick at the healing scalp.
Clients can expect to see significant new hair growth at around 10-14 weeks. Occasionally multiple transplant sessions are needed to achieve the look you want, based upon the degree of your hair loss, and the restoration needed. We provide our patients with detailed aftercare instructions to speed healing, and help your new hair follicles to start producing hair.
If you should need any assistance or have questions during the weeks following your hair transplant, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Kwak at his Manhattan office directly.
