Growth Timeline For Your Hair Transplant in Toronto
LEARN MORE ABOUT HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURES
The recovery from hair transplant in Toronto is relatively simple. Yet, the wait time to see encouraging progress and results may be longer than you anticipate. We’ve compiled a timeline guide to help make the stages of recovery clearer.
Immediately Following Hair Transplant in Toronto
On day 1: You’ll go home from the Verso Surgery Centre with a booklet of postoperative instructions and tips. You’ll be provided with a direct contact number to reach an OR nurse at any time you need as well. The initial instructions include plenty of rest, and avoiding touching, rubbing or applying anything to your scalp.
You’ll be advised to take over the counter pain medication as needed and instructed not to bend over or lower your head at first. That’s because normal swelling is expected post-op, but the pressure of gravity can make it worse. Resting in bed or on the couch at home, prop up your head and shoulders to minimize inflammation in the scalp and forehead.
For the first 5 days, you’ll see redness at the donor graft sites and the tiny recipient implant sites. These fade and forms small scabs which will slough off through gentle washing between day 5 and 10.
The transplanted hairs will usually shed between 2-4 weeks after hair transplant in Toronto. This comes as a shock to some people but should not be cause for alarm. The little hairs which transferred over with your living follicles shed to make way for new growth. As the follicles take root and establish a blood supply in their new location, deep within the new hairs will start to grow.
Between 1-3 Months
Patients often look just like they did before surgery at this point. With incisions healed, swelling gone and the transplanted hairs fallen out, it can appear as though you’re back to square one. You’ll be able to wash and style your remaining hair normally and bolster your patience for the results that are coming.
