Hair transplantation lasts approximately 6-8 hours. The area that hair is taken is closed with dressing the wound after operation; however the transplanted area is left open. Afterwards, the hair transplantation patient goes either home or the hotel he stays in, and comes to the center or hospital, where he received the transplantation, for a short dressing. And after the dressing, he goes back home or the hotel for rest. It is suggested for 3 days to lie on the area where extraction is done by lying on his back. The purpose of this application is to enable the liquid given as a small amount to the scalp and possible edema to stream from the area where extraction is done. While resting by lying on the back or half sitting position, ice treatment is applied on the forehead and temporal regions; the purpose is to prevent a swelling on the face. While resting, medications prescribed by the doctor must be used as well.
It is a rare possibility to suffer from pain after hair transplantation but using pain killers is advised for 3 days just in case. During the 3 day long rest, the transplanted areas must not be touched and not be touched by water.
