Question #2 – How soon can I go back to work?

This question is one we get often and, fortunately, the answer is sooner than you may think. Some variable factors do need to be taken into account. Your profession is one such variable, but the typical amount of time needed away from work after a hair-transplant procedure is one to three days. Some really common hair-styling techniques can help to significantly conceal any obvious signs of having had the procedure performed. This will be reviewed thoroughly at your consultation.

It should be noted that more time away from work may be required if your work requires strenuous activity. Working out—and anything that is comparably strenuous—should be avoided for at least the first couple of weeks to ensure that your transplanted hairs take a firm hold in your scalp.
