Selecting the Right Clinic for Your Hair Transplant Surgery

Before you undergo hair transplant surgery, it is essential to choose the right specialist and hair transplant clinic for the job. Remember, hair transplantation is an invasive surgery that should only be performed by an experienced, licensed and trained surgeon. The failure to get your hair transplant at a renowned clinic can result not only in unsatisfactory results but also put your health at risk. When choosing a hair clinic, look at reviews on Google, before and after pictures of previous hair transplant surgeries, and do more research on the surgeon that will do your surgery. That way, determining the right clinic for your hair transplant will be much easier. Read More: How Long Does it Take to See Results After a Hair Transplant?

Foods and Beverages You Need to Consume Before the Operation

Before your hair transplant surgery, you need to consume foods and beverages that won’t put a burden on your digestive system. In other words, stay away from fatty and heavy meals. If your operation is scheduled for the morning, you can have a light breakfast. And if your surgery is in the afternoon, make sure to grab a light lunch too.


How to Dress and Wash Your Hair Before the Procedure

Before your hair transplant surgery, you need to wash your hair thoroughly, as that will be the last time you will do so for a couple of days. Please make sure that you don’t apply any products to your hair after your shower, such as gels, hair spray, and similar. In addition to that, make sure that you dress appropriately for your surgery. You should choose clothing that won’t make contact with your scalp after the surgery. Dr. Yaman recommends wearing a loose t-shirt or similar clothing that you can easily put on and take off after your surgery.
