Things to Consider After Hair Transplantation

Individuals who want to have hair transplantation begin to adapt physically and mentally by obtaining detailed information about hair transplantation in order to prepare themselves for the operation. However, he gets ideas by meeting with clinics to find the best hair transplant center. Since the hair transplant center to be chosen will directly affect the success rate of the operation, the choice to be made is critical.

Hair transplant operation is a 3-step process. It is divided into pre-operation, operation and post-operation. The process was meticulously carried out from the pre-operation process to the conditions that should be considered until the end of the process. Even after a successful operation, options such as the care it will show to yourself and your hair and a healthy life should not be ignored.

Well, do you wonder what you will experience in this process?

When we divide it into two main topics that need attention after hair transplantation, we see nutrition and care. We can evaluate the post-hair transplant process under two headings.


After hair transplantation, the main sources that nourish the hair are nutritional values. Vitamins to be taken are important in the nutrition of hair follicles and in the healing process. Increasing the cell renewal rate with increasing nutritional values means shortening the post-operative period.

When your body is deprived of protein, vitamins and minerals, not just hair follicles, the cell renewal rate slows down. This situation causes both your hair not being nourished and your life cycle being disrupted. Hair loss continues due to this nutritional behavior.

B- Vitamins

Vitamins B7 and B12 nourish hair follicles and prevent hair loss. After the hair transplant, you can meet your B-complex vitamins need by feeding on red meat, white meat, avocado, banana, brown rice, eggs and nuts.


Zinc support causes hair loss and serious hair thinning. This poses a serious problem. Zinc support is specially recommended for people who want to have hair transplantation before hair transplantation. Zinc supplements include chickpeas, all grains, eggs, shrimp and fish, which are also rich in vitamin B, and are rich in zinc.


Iron deficiency is known not only for the damage to the body but also to the hair. Iron increases the amount of oxygen in the roots by feeding the hair follicles. Since iron also strengthens the immune system in the body, hair transplant operation also increases the recovery rate. Foods with high iron content; red meat, liver, beans and spinach.

E Vitamins

Not only vitamin E but also vitamin E oil can be used. After the area where the hair follicles, known as the donor area, is healed, vitamin E oil can be used to increase the tissue quality. In general, it has healing properties against skin problems. Spinach is rich in vitamin E as well as avocados, almonds, virgin olive oil and iron.

C Vitamins

Vitamin C provides oxidative stress responsible for hair graying, preventing hair loss, and increasing the healing speed of vital wounds. Small-grained fruits such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kiwi, broccoli, green peppers, red peppers, and grapes are rich in Vitamin C.

A Vitamins

Vitamin A is necessary and beneficial for all cells in the body, including hair follicles. Vitamin A nourishes all cells, increases the regeneration rate and strengthens it. Vitamin A deficiency causes problems such as drying of hair follicles and itching along with weakness in the immune system. Potatoes, spinach, liver, carrots, cabbage, pumpkin, as well as other vitamins, are foods rich in Vitamin A.

With this type of nutrition, you will not only nourish your hair follicles, but also help you create a healthy life foundation. All your nutritional values, hormonal values and cholesterol levels will return to normal, your hair will be completely healthy and its roots will be strengthened.

Recovery and Care

As in all operations, hair transplant operation is an aesthetic surgery procedure that must be performed under sterile conditions. When done in this way, the patient can continue his normal life without any risk of infection.

First 10 Important Days After Hair Transplant

After the hair transplant operation, the growth process of all hair has been observed as a 1-year process. The first recovery period after the operation begins with the dressing on the 2nd day and the bandage wrapped in the donor area on the 3rd day, and the treatment of the area with care creams and healing lotions.

Pain is generally not felt after transplantation. If pain is felt, you should take pain medications, which are among the drugs given to you just in case. In addition, if your specialist needs to remove the injected fluid and pass the effect of local anesthesia, anti-edema medications, otherwise you can get rid of edema by consuming plenty of water.

Your comfort is provided by providing a neck support pillow by the clinic. Since antibiotics will be used, it is recommended not to use alcohol and to limit smoking for a week in order to complete the first healing process, in order for the blood to deliver clean oxygen to the hair follicles.

After 10th Day Care 

After the use of the first 10 days of medication and sprays for itching, on the 10th day, the crusting on the planted area is shed. Scab is the washing done by applying light pressure to the hair transplanted for the first time after hair transplantation. After the shells are poured, the care kits are opened in the set given by the clinic and sprays are started to be used respectively.

The shampoo should be especially natural. Today's market shampoos often damage and dilute the hair follicles due to their excessive chemical content. You can spend your first 1 year with the foams and shampoos included in the care kits you can get from the clinic. Then you can continue to buy from the clinic continuously or get natural paraben-free shampoos from pharmacies.
