There are several questions which come to mind before and after hair transplant surgery. One of such questions is about scalp massage. Restoring a fuller head of hair after going hairless is a fantastic feeling. You not only regain the lost youthful appearance but also the confidence that goes away with every strand falling out. Are you also planning to get a hair restoration surgery? Remember, the surgery is just the first step! It requires a constant care of weeks and patience and wait spanning months before you are actually able to see your hair growing back. In Dubai, you can get the best hair transplant ever at UAE’s Top hair transplant Clinic which is Dubai Hair Club.
While the newly transplanted grafts get ready to grow new, healthy and balding resistant hairs, it is important that you take very good care of not only the follicles but also the treated areas to ensure that the follicles stay in their optimal condition. There is a long list of dos and don’ts that your doctor will handover to you after the surgery to follow during recovery period. Follow the instructions carefully to get the most out of your surgery. Some common don’ts post-transplantation include blood thinners, smoking, alcoholic beverages, strenuous exercises, scratching and massaging scalp.
Yes, it is true, massaging is not allowed after a hair transplant surgery. Massaging – a process that is well known for non-surgical hair growth – is a big no after surgical hair restoration, at least for a couple of weeks. Most patients have this conception that that scalp massage after the surgery will increase blood circulation in the scalp and thus help strengthen the newly transplanted hair follicles. But this is not the case in reality. Massaging the freshly transplanted follicles will only help dislodge them.
Surgeons recommend to avoid scalp massaging for at least 10 to 12 days after the transplant surgery. The grafts take anywhere between 10 to 14 days to anchor themselves firmly in the recipient area. After that you can resume gentle massaging. Make sure that you go very easy and use soft hands.
