Recovering From a Hair Transplant Procedure
The most common question we get is “how long does it take to recover from hair restoration surgery?” The answer to this question will vary for every person. For the FUE procedure, recovery time is quick because it’s a minimally invasive process, and a local anesthetic is used, unlike traditional surgery.
The length of time it will take to see results will also vary. With FUE new hair will begin around three months after the procedure. Within six months you’ll have significant hair growth and after a year, you’ll have final results.
Dr. Katona will determine the best recovery strategies you should implement after the procedure is complete, but generally it is recommended to sleep with your head elevated for the first week or so. This will help decrease any swelling that may happen after the surgery.
More accurate recovery times will be provided post surgery depending on the examination that will happen the next day.
