Smoking and drinking after hair transplant surgery
It’s good to avoid smoking and drinking right after surgery. After surgery, hairs will temporarily fall out. Then, with nutrient and oxygen supplied will start to grow again. Smoking can constrict blood vessels and drinking can also interfere (delay) with recovery. Therefore, for more successful surgery results, it’s good to avoid smoking and drinking after hair transplant surgery.

Periodic follow up or checks
After hair transplant surgery there is much waiting involved. Best case scenario would be to visit your hair transplant clinic periodically. However, if that isn’t always possible, then the second best alternative would be to keep in contact via online or other means.

At least 6 months is required to be able to start to determine results of hair transplant surgery. It’s best to have a doctor check this and advise for you. If clinic visit is possible, it’s good to go to a clinic that also provides scalp care services. Take advantage of these services if they are offered because a healthy scalp leads to healthy hairs!
