Preparing Yourself


1 Month before the procedure|

You should start paying extra attention to your scalp to keep it as healthy as possible for your hair transplant. Begin massaging your scalp for 10 to 30 minutes every day. This way, you will balance your blood flow and prepare your scalp for surgery.

Stay out of the sun. It will be hard to work on burned skin. Please use a hat or umbrella and avoid excess sun exposure.

Please let us know all the medications and supplements that you are taking. We do not want to risk any medications or supplements interfering with the medications we’ll give you pre and post-surgery. We will ask you to stop certain supplements and medications before your procedure.

10 Days before the procedure

Don’t cut or dye your hair.

Don’t eat greasy or fatty foods.

7 Days before the procedure

No consumption of alcohol and smoking, if possible. If not, the consumption should be reduced to a minimum – It slows down blood circulation and may cause malnutrition of the transplanted grafts.

5 Days before the procedure

Stop taking blood thinners (if you have to, please inform our team and get approval from our doctor).
