How to Prepare for Hair Transplant Surgery

While our free consultations and your dedicated team will give you all the information you need about a hair restoration procedure, it’s also important to share it on the blog. This allows our readers to consume the information in their own space.

When our patients ask us how to prepare for hair transplant surgery, our first tip is to…. relax! There’s no need to feel anxious beforehand as the surgery is minimally invasive and your support team will be on-hand during and after to take care of your every need.

Prepare for Hair Transplant Surgery

There are several ways you can get ready for the treatment and minimise any intra-operative side effects such as bruising. We advise avoiding alcohol and smoking for two weeks before your procedure. Avoid any products containing ibuprofen or anti-inflammatories and blood thinning drugs or beta blockers for seven days prior to your appointment.

This will minimise the risk of intra-operative side effects such as bruising. We also advise to stop taking any multivitamin, mineral or supplements or herbal supplements for a fortnight before surgery.

Smoking should be avoided for two weeks before and it’s best to minimise your habit post-procedure as well for best recovery and results.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to cut your hair short before surgery. In fact, we need to access as much hair as possible in the donor area.
