How To Handle Pain After A Hair Transplant

Following all surgical procedures, inclusive of our very best hair transplants in Turkey, there is the potential that pain can be experienced. We at Vera Clinic want to ensure that pain is minimised as much as possible, allowing you to enjoy a world class hair transplant, with the smallest amount of discomfort. Within this guide you can find out how to handle pain after a FUE hair transplant, allowing you to enjoy the full benefits of your new head of hair while counteracting the potential side effects.

Pain after a FUE Hair Transplant

Compared to pain after a FUT hair transplant, pain after a FUE hair transplant is much lower, which is why we only offer you our award-winning FUE hair transplants in Istanbul. Although both take several hours to complete, pain after a hair transplant can be managed much better following the FUE procedure due to the individual grafts being transferred, rather than an entire strip of the scalp being removed. As the area may be swollen, pain in the implanted area and pain in the donor area after a hair transplant may well be experienced. One of our expert surgeons may inject you with the required medication following your procedure, which can in turn reduce hair transplant pain after surgery.

How to Treat Pain after a FUE Hair Transplant

As you will feel pain or soreness at the transplant site as well as pain in the donor area after a hair transplant, our surgeons will prescribe you various medication within your aftercare plan to help with pain after your FUE hair transplant. Your surgeon may prescribe the following to help with your pain after a hair transplant:

  • Pain medications
  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Medications to stimulate hair growth

Aftercare for Hair Transplant Pain After Surgery

Managing hair transplant pain after surgery can be aided in a variety of ways. Some of the best ways in which you can manage pain after your FUE hair transplant here at Vera Clinic are easily controllable, allowing you to enjoy life on the day-to-day in a manageable way, while enjoying your realistic looking new head of hair. To manage pain after a hair transplant in a way that minimises it as much as possible, we recommend you wait a few days following your surgery before you wash your hair. Milder shampoos with less chemicals are advisable, allowing your hair transplant to heal optimally while reducing pain after your FUE hair transplant surgery.

Although you should be able to return to your normal work and daily activities within 3 days, avoid brushing your hair within the first 3 weeks as this may disturb the grafts and cause more pain after your hair transplant. Exercise should also be avoided for approximately one week following your procedure, as this can cause unnecessary pain after your FUE hair transplant.
