Precautions which our guests must take before hair transplant:
It is imperative that patients follow pre-operative and post-operative instructions given to them by their doctors in order to get the best results for their hair transplant procedure so optimal healing and growth of newly transplanted hair is possible.
Here are few points on must follow before having a hair transplant procedure done:
*Avoid any anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin that thin the blood which could increase the risk of post-operative bleeding.
*Also if you are on vitamin E or Plavix, Coumadin or MAO inhibitor anti-depression drugs must contact us, since hair transplant surgery cannot be done while on these drugs.
*Do not use or ‘enhancement ‘ for 48 hours before surgery.
*The only anti-inflammatory drug that can be used during this time is acetaminophen (Tylenol).
*Alcohol use should be stopped 72 hours prior to surgery and nicotine consumption (smoking, chewing tobacco, nicotine gums/patches, cigars, shisha, etc.) should be stopped and avoided for 2 weeks before and 3 weeks after surgery.
