He stated that there are many rules from clothes to sex, even the pillow to be used after surgery is important. Here are the things to consider after hair transplantation…

Smoking, alcohol, sexual intercourse, hat, shirt… there are dozens of rules to pay attention to after hair transplantation. A transplant doctor Who gives information about the subject, “after the operation, the hat can be worn to camouflage the planting area. During holiday package cost for Turkey hair plantation, the top of the head will sit but not touch the planting area, a hard cap/sports hat should be used, and the area under the hair transplantation should remain in the space under the hat. The most appropriate is a hat that will not collapse, the top of which is hard in the style we see in African safari documentaries. If it can’t be found, it can be golf hats with a hard top,” he said.


Hair planted while sleeping at night should not touch the head of the bed, the blanket or the pillow and should not be damaged, ” said Dr. continued his statement as follows:

“For this, it is recommended to use a hard and small pillow. You can lie on your back on the nape of the back. Lying face down is not recommended for two weeks, as it increases the risk that the transplant area may come into contact with the pillow or bed. In addition, for 2 weeks, it should be preferred to wear front-open clothing such as shirts, cardigans, zippered sweaters, T-shirts, throat sweaters, narrow clothing such as athletes should not be passed from the head area to avoid damage to the planted area. In other words, there should be no contact with the transplant area for 2 weeks, every possible contact can damage the planted hair root and we can lose that hair root.”

For two weeks, sports activities, Turkish hammam, sauna, swimming, solarium all kinds of hairdressing services will be prohibited, hair roots can damage and increase the risk of infection, said Turkey Doctor said, ” hair can be cut with scissors, provided that it is not scraped after 15 days. After 45 days, all kinds of hairdressing services can be obtained (such as shaving, painting, scraping, perm and similar procedures). Hair transplantation for two days should not be washed and water should not be touched. The first wash should be done on the second day, i.e. 48 hours after the operation. This wash will be done by your respective doctor or medical team.

It is important to be gentle in such way as not to damage the hair follicles and not to damage the hair when washing. After washing, the hair transplant area should not use towels and should be dried with a hair dryer. If you are playing sports that will hit the head area (football, basketball, Taekwondo, kick box, boxing, wrestling, etc.) you should start these activities after 45 days. If you are going to travel immediately after a hair transplant, traveling with a simple inflatable pillow that will fill your neck will prevent you from resting your head on the glass or somewhere else and damaging your hair follicles. You should not take aspirin the first week after surgery. It is also not recommended to take blood-thinning medications and herbal supplement treatments such as ginseng, ginko biloba, vitamin E.


After hair transplantation, it may take between 2.5 and 4 months for your hair to start growing. You should not drink alcohol for a month. It is also recommended to reduce smoking. But you are not allowed to smoke the day after the operation and on the day of the operation. People engaged in any branch of sport should not do sports for a month, they should not tire themselves too much. They should be sensitive to daylight and cold and not stand in too cold and hot. Two weeks after the operation, they can return to their sex life. But it is not recommended to have sex for two weeks.
