Hair Transplant Heidelberg
Hair transplantation: Preparation and aftercare
Nervousness before a surgical intervention is human, but before your hair transplantation you can stay relaxed. As the hair transplantation is performed under local anaesthesia, you do not even have to forgo eating and drinking before.
A personal and detailed consultation is mandatory before any operation at the Heidelberger clinic proaesthetic. Your surgeon will discuss with you whether it is better to let your hair grow until surgical intervention to cover up possible scars after surgery. Our specialist will also tell you if you need to stop any medication before your hair transplantation..
Before your surgery, the donor area will be determined, marked and shaved. A sedative will support your relaxation. You will barely feel anything, neither of the local anaesthesia nor of the removal of the hair follicles.
You should only have a little patience, because depending on the size of the area to be treated the intervention will take two to three hours. However, we do everything to keep the surgery as comfortable and pleasant as possible for you.
Aftercare of your hair transplantation
After surgery, the treated area is covered with a sterile band-aid, which we will renew the following day. A salve will support the regeneration of the scalp.
In a follow-up visit the success of your hair transplantation will be discussed, and further session may be scheduled, if needed.
Sports after a hair transplantation
Just one week after the hair transplantation, you can start a slight sports program. After two weeks every sport is allowed. From the third day after your hair transplantation you are allowed to wash your hair with a mild shampoo.
