Controls or follow-up visits

  • The day after your surgery you will have your first hair wash in our clinic and we will show you how to wash your hair at home (you can always come to the clinic and we will do it for you)
  • After 10 days approximately, you will visit the clinic for a second follow up meeting and a hair wash to finish removing the scabs of the donor area. 
  • Follow-up meetings: 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months.

Evolution

  • The day after the hair transplant, the receiving area will already have small scabs that will come off after 7 days.
  • During the month following hair surgery, a hair follicle will provide a new hair.
  • Around 3 months the growth of new hair will begin to become visible, although not everything comes out at once. During the 18 months following the hair transplant, new hairs will begin merging and growing at a rate of 1 cm per month.

Recommendations

  • In case of any doubt or if the patient wishes to have more follow-up checks, you only need to visit our center by calling the telephone number: 93 414 25 55.
  • It is recommended that treatment for hair loss be performed early in order to make gradual replacements to the allotransplant process.
  • The key to achieving great aesthetic results in each patient is the combination of surgical skills, artistic vision and attention to detail for each specific case.
