Do hair transplants take better during the warmer months?

POSTED: 27 October 2017

The decision to get a hair transplant should not be taken lightly as there are several important factors to take into consideration.

The expense, the recovery time and the aftercare are just a few of the things that you should be mindful of when booking your procedure. Hair transplants require a significant investment of time, money and effort, that’s why it’s important to take the correct steps to ensure you get the best results.

In this article, we’ll examine the ideal time of year to have a hair transplant, as well as the proper hair transplant aftercare to help you achieve high-quality results.

 

Does sweating affect a hair transplant?

During the warmer months it’s not uncommon to sweat more doing daily activities. If you’ve booked your hair transplant for the summertime, you may be wondering if or how sweating could affect your hair transplant.

It is advised to take it easy after the first few days after a hair transplant to aid recovery. Sweating of any kind, shouldn’t affect the results of your surgery or your hair transplant recovery time. So normally, this is not something to worry about if you’re considering a summer hair transplant.

If you’re unsure about what will affect your hair transplant recovery process, read our article on questions to ask your doctor for more advice on what to ask during your consultation.

 

Does the cold affect a hair transplant?

Similarly to sweating, cold temperatures should not affect your hair transplant recovery process.

If you have waited the advised recovery time and the area is fully healed, then the temperature should not affect your hair transplant results.

Should you experience any adverse effects or changes, you should contact your doctor as soon as possible to identify any potential problems.

 

Hair transplant aftercare

To get the head of hair that you’ve been longing for, a bit of after care is required. As with most major operations, the aftercare is a key part of the healing process and taking the proper steps can help you to get even better results.

Here are our top tips for hair transplant aftercare:

  • Avoid any contact sports that could result in the area being accidentally touched or rubbed
  • Wash the scalp with a gentle shampoo e.g. baby shampoo or specialist shampoo for the first few weeks after the procedure. Sleep in a slightly upright position to help to reduce the swelling from the procedure
