What is the recovery time of a hair transplant?
When it comes to hair transplants, recovery time also plays an important role. Many patients want to know when they will be able to see the final result of the treatment.
At Elithair, only the latest methods are used, so that the follow-up does not take long in most cases. In addition, patients can also positively influence the healing time after the procedure by following the instructions provided by our medical teams.
Reduced healing time for hair transplants thanks to new technical standards
When thinning areas appear, it is not only the hair that has disappeared, but also the hair roots that have died. Nothing can be saved here, therefore new hair roots must ensure strong hair growth. If hair is transplanted, this is a surgical procedure, but for many patients the healing time of the hair transplant is short. Depending on the technique used, the upper layers of the skin are stressed, but they regenerate after some time.
The donor areas are usually at the back of the head or on the sides of the head, where the hair does not fall out for genetic reasons. These hairs are now called upon to provide dense hair in a new location.
In the past, entire strips of skin were transplanted with the hair and hair roots, but today, the FUE technique is much more effective. With this method, hair follicles are removed from the donor area and implanted into the bald areas.
Quick recovery after a hair transplant
A quick recovery is very important for our patients. That is why we only use effective methods for hair follicle extraction and transplantation.
After the treatment, the first thing to do is to rest. The scalp should be protected and not irritated. If you are stressed, it is possible that the healing time of your hair implants will be prolonged.
With hair transplant techniques such as FUE, the hair is also treated with a nutrient solution that ensures reliable attachment to the new skin area and immediately stimulates hair growth. Thanks to this preparation, the healing process is already complete after a few days and the hair roots can best ensure hair growth. Thick hair can be expected after only a few months.
The follow-up phase is also influenced by the patients
In addition to the physical conditions, it is above all the patients themselves who can influence the course of the hair transplant healing period. Thus, behaviour during the follow-up plays a very central role and should not be underestimated.
Our specialists give each patient useful tips on how to manage the healing phase. Following our experts’ instructions will have a positive influence on the final results of your hair transplant.
