Can You Exercise After Hair Transplant?
Can You Exercise After Hair Transplant? Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is one of the best and newest hair transplant methods. International approval by the FDA and American dermatologists made this method one of the most common methods in the world. The method is known as simple pocket extraction in the world.
The FUE hair transplant method can be a great choice for most people with thinning scalp. And in most cases, when the fineness is extreme, dermatologists recommend the SUPER FUE method for hair transplantation.
Most clinics have the equipment for the FUE procedure. This allowed anyone with an FUE hair transplant to do so in this country. Due to the availability of experienced surgeons and the low cost of medical treatment, many patients travel to this country to undergo a type of cosmetic surgery.
After a hair transplant, many of my patients want to go back to exercise, go back to the gym, and go back to weights. When is it safe?
During the first week after surgery, the main problems with exercise are preventing sudden changes in blood pressure that could affect the implants. During the second week, the main issue is the tension and stress in the donor area that could affect the healing of the donor area.
Full Unit Extraction Surgery (FUE)
For patients undergoing follicular extraction (FUE) procedures, I advise you to return to light cardiovascular activity on day 8 and light weights on day 11. Heavy weights on day 14
Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS)
For patients Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS), I advise you to return to light cardiovascular activity on day 12 and light weights on day 15. Heavy weights on day 21. The main problem with FUSS procedures is proper treatment.
Exercise should not be done in the first week after hair transplantation. Sudden changes in blood pressure can negatively affect implants. In the second week, exercise is also not recommended as it may affect the tension and stress in the donor area. the FUT method, exercise and fitness can be done after this date. the FUE method, patients can start all exercises 6-7 days after the end of the treatment.
What Are The Benefits Of FUE Hair Transplant?
There is great benefits to FUE. In this section we will mention some of them. First of all. You do not need complete anesthesia to perform the FUE hair transplant method. The FUE procedure has very few side effects and can give you the best and natural looking results.
Firstly in the FUT method, there are risks such as scars. Flesh wounds, prolonged numbness of the skin and permanent pain in the donor area are some other problems of FUT. The probability of these side effects occurring in the FUE method is approximately zero. This is of course if done properly and after care instructions are correctly implemented by you.
Secondly there are no restrictions on the FUE method, such as the FUT method, which prevents strenuous exercise.
Thirdly you will experience a very short recovery time and the treatment leaves no marks.
Moreover the appearance of your hair will not change over time and the hair will look natural. It is suitable for you if you have a stiff scalp.
With FUE the hair growth line is completely, and therefore normal and will grow well.
Fine hair can be removed from the donor area: In the FUT method, the surgeon can only use the hair on the skin. These hairs are usually thick and have many roots. Therefore it is a bit difficult to naturalize and beautify the growth line that has thinner hair. We do not have this limitation with the FUE method.
In conclusion the FUE method really offers great and natural hair transplant results, with most people expressing satisfaction after the procedure.
