What Should be Considered Before Hair Transplantation?
Inform the healthcare team before the operation if you take any medicines (diabetes, blood pressure, heart medication or painkillers, etc.).
Drinks containing caffeine (such as coffee, green tea and derivatives) should not be consumed before the operation.
Since the consumption of alcohol, cigarettes or other narcotic substances will adversely affect the operation process, alcohol consumption should be stopped 5 days and cigarette consumption 1 week before the operation. (If the patient is addicted, it should be quitted 2 days before the operation)
It is recommended to have breakfast before coming to the operation as local anesthesia will be applied.
There is no harm in taking a shower before coming to the hospital before the operation. However, gel, hair spray, conditioner, lotion or solution should not be applied before the operation.
On the day of the operation, comfortable, easily removable and wearable (shirt or buttoned, zippered ones) clothes should be preferred.
