Hair Transplant Bandages
Bandages after Hair Restoration Procedure
Hair Transplant Bandages – Hair transplant in Turkey is done by specialist surgeons who have years of experience. As turkey is well-known for medical tourism, every year many patients come here to get their hair transplanted. After a successful surgery, they return back with hairs that they had been missing a few days back. While many may consider hair transplant as a basic surgery but actually it is delicate surgery. Whether it’s FUE or Strip hair transplant special care is taken by surgeons while the operation is done.
Post-operative care is utmost important
In order to make hair transplant, successful post-operative care is also important. Adhering to proper care will yield good results. Bandages after a hair transplant are important but it is not necessary that people keep the bandages for long. At SHIFT Hair Transplant in Turkey, surgeons suggest that bandages must be applied after the operation, but it has to be kept for one day. Then the bandage is removed and there is no such urgency that bandages are applied again.
During the surgery the scalp is aesthete and it wore off after 3 to 4 hours of the surgery. The patient may feel discomfort in their scalp and sometimes some feel pain too. Many patients have minor swellings and soreness. Within a few days, this bruising or swelling around the hairline eases off.
Bandages after a hair transplant are removed after one day when the scalp is better. However, this may be kept for 3 to 5 days based on the condition of the scalp after surgery. Some may feel that the scalp is yet tight and look pinkish but that is normal. Sometimes the donor hair follicle may take time to get implanted but for that keeping, the area bandages are not required. Rather if bandages are applied and they cover the scalp then the grafted hair may not fall off. Do not worry that what will happen if the grafted hair falls off, actually the stem cell gets implanted in the scalp from the hair follicle that is grafted. New hair grows from this stem cell that grows later on.
At SHIFT hair transplant the surgeon’s conducts this hair transplant in different ways that are based on the type of hair that has to be transplanted. However, they suggest that after hair transplant worrying about bandages is not enough. Post-operative care is most important that will help the follicle to grow and give the best results of the surgery.
Post-operative care after hair transplant
On day zero, that is after surgery the scalp will be bandaged. Surgeons will suggest about whether to keep the bandage for long or remove it once spraying is started. The frequency of spraying diminishes as days pass, but normally at the beginning, one must spray at an interval of 2 hours. Normally, surgeons suggest not to wash the hair for the first 4 days after transplant. Again, it will vary based on the condition of the patient.
Even though the bandage that was applied after a hair transplant is removed surgeons suggest to wear some cap to keep the area protected. Whatever is done the main emphasis should be given that there must not be any pressure on the scalp as it may then uproot the grafted hairs.
There are high chances that there will be swelling in the transplanted area. Thus, one should not sleep in a high pillow. It is best to avoid sleeping in pillows after the transplant, if not possible then use a thin pillow.
Massaging is also useful for reducing the swelling but it must be done properly. If the massage technique is not right then again the transplantation will be affected. Thus, surgeons at SHIFT Hair Transplant recommend that it is done under special care.
Getting the results
Hair transplant in Turkey done at SHIFT Hair Transplant is carried on by experienced surgeons. However, if someone expects that they can get the results in the first few days then they are wrong. They have to give their body the time to accept the new follicles and then that will grow into fresh hair.
One may find certain loose grafts after the first week of the procedure. There is no need to worry about that as the stem cell remains as a bulb at the bottom of the scalp. The transplanted hair will also fall off but there will be a growth of new hair and all this will take 3 to 4 months after the surgery.
All this is possible when special care is taken while getting the procedure done. A hair transplant may not be a simple task but when handled by experienced surgeons the results are really great.
