If you are planning to have a hair transplant treatment, it is natural to want to learn about the process. It may also be helpful to gain an understanding of the expected healing process and timeline. The hair transplant recovery timeline allows you to examine the daily, weekly, and monthly healing processes in detail.

Immediately After Surgery

The initial stage of the hair transplant recovery timeline starts just after surgery. Patients are permitted to go home the same day after their operation. However, it is possible that the area where the hair transplant was performed may experience swelling, redness, and sensitivity.  Adherence to the hair care recommendations provided by your doctor will result in a more efficient recovery.

The First Few Days After Hair Transplantation

The first few days are very important in the hair transplant recovery timeline. Although some discomfort may be experienced during this period, the healing process of the scalp starts. In order to shorten the recovery period, it is advisable to avoid exposure to sunlight, to sleep in the correct position, and to refrain from engaging in physical activities.

First Week After Hair Transplantation

There is a significant reduction in swelling and redness on your scalp until the first week. Your scalp heals quickly. However, you should continue to take proper care of your scalp.

After the First Month of Hair Transplantation

After hair transplantation, recovery starts in the first month and is completed within approximately 12–15 months. Until the process is completed, you should take the necessary care and go to the doctor’s control at regular intervals.
