FUE Hair Transplant Before And After

Make An Appointment

The success rate of hair transplants is much higher than over-the-top hair restoration products. Specific factors that you must consider before opting for an FUE hair transplant include:

  • After three to four months of hair transplant, around ten to eighty percent of transplanted hair fully grows back. Plasma therapy can be beneficial for the full growth of transplanted hair.
  • Just like regular hair, thinning can also be observed in transplanted hair. 
  • Hair transplant may be less effective for individuals with dormant hair follicles.

In a hair transplant, your existing hair is used for the transplant, so the procedure is not suitable for people with:

  • Extensive thinning or baldness.
  • Balding as a result of chemotherapy or some other medication.
  • Thick scars in the scalp from injury

FUE before and after results are different for everyone. It can restore the hair effectively if balding or thinning took place naturally or due to some accident.


Your doctor may prescribe you medication for several days to minimize the tenderness of your scalp after the surgery. You might have to wear bandages over your treated scalp for one or two days. Depending on your FUE hair transplant before and after condition, antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs may also be prescribed. You may return to your routine after two to five days of the surgery.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE)

FUE is performed by the surgeon following these steps;

  • The hair present on the back of your head is shaved.
  • Individual follicles are then removed from the scalp skin. You may notice tiny marks in the site of FUE hair transplant before and after the removal of hair follicles
  • Hair follicles are then implanted into your scalp making small holes in the scalp.
  • The surgical site is then entirely covered with bandages.

Recovery after hair transplant

The completion of an FUE hair transplant before and after steps might take several hours to several days, depending on the efforts made by the surgeon. You will be released from the hospital the same day of the surgery. After the surgery, all the bandages are removed by the surgeon very cautiously. Your doctor might then prescribe you some medicines or give a triamcinolone injection to bring down the swelling at the surgery site. 

Transplanted hair generally falls out within two to three weeks of surgery. The growth of new hair follicles might be observed within the next few months. After 6 to 9 months of surgery, around 60 percent of the hair grows back. Your surgeon might also prescribe some drugs to facilitate the growth of transplanted hair. Mild pain and soreness are very likely to be observed at the site of the transplant. Some of the medicines that your doctor might prescribe to provide you with relief include:

  • Medication to minimize the pain.
  • Antibiotics to prevent infection.
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs to alleviate the swelling.
  • Medication to facilitate hair growth.

Some of the aftercare tips for hair transplant surgery:

  • You can’t wash your hair for a few days after the surgery and only use mild shampoo in the initial weeks.
  • You can get back to your routine after three days of surgery.
  • Comb or brush should not be pressed over the transplant site for three weeks.
  • Hats, pullover shirts or jackets must be worn only after consulting with the doctor.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for about a week post-surgery.

Hair fall is a part of the process, so don’t be worried!

Tips for post-surgical FUE hair transplant

To recover fast, you must get your post-surgical process assessed by a professional doctor. Post-surgical treatment care must be a part of your routine to have an effective hair transplant.

  • The transplant site must not be touched or washed for a few days after the surgery. To avoid detaching any grafts, you might wear a hat and keep your head in an elevated position while sleeping.
  • The transplant site must not be exposed to the sun for a longer duration as it might damage the transplanted hair. You must use a strong sunblock SPF 30.
  • Continue with the treatment or medication recommended by your doctor.
