Basic recommendations for preparation before your hair transplant procedure would include:

  • Continue with any treatment prescribed by another doctor that the patient may be taking (medication for blood pressure, heart, cholesterol, etc.) and inform the doctor responsible for the hair transplant. It should also mention herbal and naturopathic compounds.
  • Inform the transplant specialist of any medical conditions you have, especially those related to clotting, scarring, heart disease, infections or allergies to any medications.
  • In the days prior to the hair transplant, you should not take aspirin or NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.). Paracetamol can be substituted, but if in doubt, please consult our doctors.
  • If you use topical Minoxidil, you should not use it for 10 days before your scheduled transplant date.
  • You should not drink alcohol in the 48 hours prior to the hair transplant.
  • Try to get plenty of sleep the night before.
  • On the day of the procedure, you should wash your hair thoroughly with your usual shampoo. Do not use hair styling products (hair gel, hairspray, gels or mousses).
  • Go to the hair implant wearing a button-down shirt.
  • On the day of the hair transplant, avoid coffee and tea for breakfast. And if you come to the consultation while driving, please notify our medical staff.
