Did you know that half of a man’s head of hair will be gone before his hair loss is even noticeable? Fortunately, there are ways to fix this. If not treated early enough or if it gets worse than expected with time and treatment methods have been exhausted then surgery may become an option for some people who want their full heads back. Hair loss in men can start anywhere from the front part down all around but usually starts on top first sometimes where Hair transplant surgery helps remedy these problems. since most guys do not like how thinning looks so getting new ones might make them feel better about. If you’re ready for your FUE hair transplant, here’s how you can prepare for the best results:
1. Start taking a hair supplement
We want your hair follicles to be in their best condition before your day of surgery. We strongly recommend NUTRAFOL hair supplements to all our patients. NUTRAFOL can help thicken your hair follicles and improve hair growth.
2. Skip anti-inflammatory medication before surgery
Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication before surgery. This advice may seem like it would be beneficial, but in reality you could end up needing more medical treatment than necessary and wasting time when your body isn’t swollen with inflammation as expected for an operation such as hair transplantation! The personal cost associated with ignoring this rule can be much higher if one does not follow through on what they should do after getting their surgical wounds treated at all costs – avoid any kind of painkillers immediately following major surgeries or procedures done by doctors unless absolutely needed due to possible interactions between certain types that will cause extra complications down the line.
3. No Smoking
The healing process is slowed down by smoking. You should stop at least 24 hours before surgery and at least a week after surgery so that your body has enough time for recovery and a proper post-surgery course of treatment, which will be less painful without any interferers like smoke in it.
4. Limit alcohol intake
Cutting back on alcohol can help you recover better. Most people should try going without for at least a week before their procedure to avoid complications during healing and post-surgery recovery periods, but it is always best if they don’t drink any form of alcohol whatsoever while they’re preparing!
5. Avoid a haircut before surgery
Cutting your hair before surgery is a big no-no. It may be tempting to get rid of all that extra length, but cutting too short can lead you into an unwanted pattern where the donor area will need more time and expose its own stitches after procedures are complete!
6. Plan your sleep position and comfort
You’ll want to make sure you have a comfortable night’s rest ahead of you as well as keep your hair safe from friction and damage while you heal. If you sleep by tossing and turning, you may want to think about sleeping in a reclining chair. Make sure you have extra pillows to keep your head properly elevated to help reduce swelling. Second, the extra pillows will help you from bumping your head against your headboard and keep you comfortable and your hair follicles safe.

7. Massage your scalp
Massaging your scalp daily will help you get a smooth recovery after surgery. How often? every day for a month! This is because the skin there needs to be soft and pliable, which can only happen with regular massage treatment over time.
Now that you’re more than prepared for your hair restoration surgery, here’s everything you need to know for after your hair transplant.
