If you chose a fully shaven FUE procedure, there will be no need for a hair dryer for some time. However, once your hair has grown where the use of a hairdryer is necessary make sure you to use one where you can regulate the temperature level. It is important that the hair does not overheat. Thus, keep the dryer on the lowest possible temperature and at least two feet away from your hair.
Technically, you can return to work the very next day. In reality, for your own comfort, it is probably best to wait up to two weeks so that everything looks normal. If you have further questions with regards to this matter you can address this issue with Dr. Lupanzula personally.
Dr. Lupanzula enjoys seeing his patients as often as possible. However, we do realise that you may not be able to make it to us in person every time. We will thus ask you to send us high quality photographs every three months to allow us to monitor and document the healing process closely.
You must wait at least two to three months after the procedure – depending on the individual development of your transplanted hair. Please contact us beforehand, with recent photos, so we can assess whether or not you are good to wear a helmet again.
No surgical procedure can ever be performed with a “guarantee”. Clinics that offer such promises are not being completely honest. There is a risk of incomplete regrowth, however, in our clinic as little as 5% of transplanted hair may not grow. In over a decade we have not had a single case where a hair transplant has completely failed.
This has never happened. However, in the unlikely event that your transplanted hair does not grow as expected, we will of course assess your case and present you with an action plan. Our service does not end the minute you have had your transplant. We are here for you every step of the way to achieve the result you desire.
Absolutely, yes! Dr. Lupanzula generally recommends Biotin and MSM. However, the Doctor will discuss all these options with you in detail at the clinic as with any type of supplement or medication, he needs to see you and will inform you about the pros and cons.
Yes. Smoking constricts blood vessels which is counter-productive to optimal healing after any surgical procedure. Hence, in order to boost the potential for strong and early regrowth it is best to quit smoking before the procedure. If you continue to smoke you run the risk of compromising your final hair transplant result, not to mention your health.
