What to Expect During Your NeoGraft Hair Transplant Recovery

NeoGraft Hair Transplant in Chicago, IL with Dr. Gregory Wiener, MD, FACS You’ve taken the first step towards reclaiming your confidence with a NeoGraft hair transplant. Now, let’s explore what to expect during your hair transplant recovery process.

NeoGraft hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that uses advanced technology for follicular unit extraction (FUE). It involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the donor area and implanting them into the balding or thinning areas, resulting in natural-looking hair growth with minimal scarring and a faster recovery time compared to traditional methods. This technique is popular due to its precision and the reduced downtime for patients.

Immediate Post-Procedure Care

After your NeoGraft procedure, your scalp may feel tender and sore. Don’t worry; this is entirely normal. Here’s how to take care of yourself during the initial phase of recovery:

  • Your doctor will provide specific instructions for caring for your scalp, including how to cleanse it and what medications to take.
  • You may experience some swelling and redness, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days.
  • Avoid touching or scratching your scalp to prevent any irritation or infection.

Recovery Timeline

Every person’s recovery timeline is unique, but here’s a general overview of what you can expect:

  • Days 1-7: During the first week, you may experience some discomfort and swelling. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities and follow your doctor’s instructions for caring for your scalp.
  • Weeks 2-4: By the second week, any swelling and discomfort should begin to improve. You may start to see some initial hair growth, but don’t worry if it’s sparse at first; this is entirely normal.
  • Months 1-3: Over the next few months, you’ll notice gradual improvements in hair growth. Your fresh hair will keep getting thicker and more noticeable.
  • Months 4-6: By the fourth month, your hair should be noticeably thicker and fuller. You’ll start to see the full results of your NeoGraft procedure.
  • Months 6+: At this point, your hair should be fully grown, and you can enjoy the full benefits of your NeoGraft hair transplant.
