You don’t have to accept thinning hair or balding, thanks to the NeoGraft Hair Transplant.
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.
What Should I Expect After Surgery?
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.
