Timeout for post Hair Implante exercise
How Long Until I Can Work out After Hair Transplant Surgery?
I had hair transplant one month ago. Can I go to the gym and workout (gym exercises) now? Please tell me.
Our patients resume activity approximately 1-3 weeks post-transplant depending on the activity ,with the exception of swimming. In our practice, we instruct the patient to wait until we remove the sutures/staples (8 to 10 days) before going back to normal activity. That should allow an adequate amount of time for the grafts to heal in the recipient sites. Normal walking is permitted during this period Running can be done gradually after 3 weeks. Avoid swimming for another month because you don't want to soak fresh wounds.
The more active you are during this period increases the chances of having a more pronounced scar in the donor site..
