This innovative hair transplant surgery makes it possible for patients to get fuller, thicker, and natural-looking hair back in areas where thinning and balding are most prominent. Best of all, this surgery doesn’t involve hair plugs or surgical incisions within the scalp. Within the span of one treatment, a special device quickly and gently removes hair follicles from the donor area (typically the back of the scalp) and implants it onto areas where receding or thinning hair is taking place.
While the surgery is efficient and exciting, some patients wonder just how much time they’ll need to devote to post-procedure recovery. So with that in mind, what is the recovery time for hair transplant surgery?
How Soon Can I Go Back to Work?
In general, most patients can go back to work the next day after hair transplant surgery. However, be aware that your head will be sensitive to the touch, especially in the areas where the new hair follicles have been placed. Minor swelling and bruising may also be visible to the naked eye, but you won’t be able to wear a hat to cover it up.
Once the hair transplant surgery has been performed, patients can expect the hair follicles to stay in place for about two to three weeks. At this point, the hair follicles will fall out, but don’t worry – you’ll start to see natural growth in about three to four months. You’ll continue to see improvement in hair growth for the next six to twelve months, at which point you should have a full and thicker head of hair again.
My experience was amazing. The customer service from the staff is awesome and very tentative. Always smiling with a great attitude. Dr. Sozer is an impeccable professional Dr. with a great personality. Made me feel comfortable and explained in detail very clearly how the procedure was going to be done. I greatly recommend El Paso Cosmetic Surgery.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.

Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
