Before hair transplantation you should inform us about any health problem you have as well as about medications you use or take regularly. If you have a health condition, you should consult your doctor about the fact that you are planning to undergo a hair transplant that will be performed under sedation.
After your treating doctor approves of a hair transplant, you should stop using aspirin or any other blood thinner three days before the transplant. It is important to remember that you should only stop using blood-thinning medications and not other medications.
The day before the transplant:
Drinking alcohol is prohibited. Alcohol may lower the effectiveness of local anesthesia. Avoid smoking. Cigarettes disrupt blood flow to the scalp. Important to know: All smoking will be banned even a week after the transplant as blood flow may be disrupted which will make it difficult for the transplanted follicles to grow healthily.
The Transplant Day What you should wear?
You must wear a buttoned shirt or a shirt with a zipper. Contact with the follicles after transplantation is absolutely prohibited and for this reason you should undress and dress in a way that does not touch the transplant area. The transplant lasts between 5-7 hours depending on your transplant plan. For this reason you should *get dressed and undressed in a way that does* not touch the transplant area.
