Why do a hair transplant in summer
The good weather is approaching, and doubts arrive in the field of hair medicine. Many are the patients who ask us if it is a good time to do a hair transplant in summer. The keys are clear, there is no problem in performing surgery in the hottest months of the year.
In fact, it is one of the best times of the year to perform this procedure. With heat, blood flow slows down. This helps in surgery, for less bleeding and in the correct implantation of the follicles. In addition, it is a good time because, in summer, we usually enjoy several days of vacation, in which we can more easily stop our socio-work life and rest after the implant.
What to consider for a summer hair transplant
As at any time of the year, you must have a series of conditions after surgery. It is very important to take care of your hair and head after surgery. Performing the washes as indicated in the clinic and taking care of the diet will be key to a good and quick recovery.
As for what has to do with summer, it is necessary to avoid direct exposure to the sun, although that does not mean that we stop going outside. Looking for the shadows or the coolest hours of the day will make us enjoy the summer in all its splendor.
One of the biggest drawbacks will be the baths in the sea and pool. Both salt and chlorinated water can affect the survival of the follicles so, in the case of bathing, we should avoid submerging our heads, waiting a month to do it in the sea and two months in the case of swimming pools.
