If you exercise on a regular basis, you may be eager to resume your regular fitness program following your hair transplant operation. However, it is critical that you limit your exercise for the first 14 days after surgery. It is recommended that you take it easy for the first 5 days after your hair transplant and get as much rest as possible. You might be surprised to learn that your regular workout regimen can usually be resumed two weeks after FUE surgery. After one week, you may begin taking baby efforts to incorporate a mild activity that does not make you sweat back into your everyday routine.
You want to do everything possible after your hair transplant surgery to encourage healthy hair growth and lower your risk of infection. It is crucial to know that exercising after a hair transplant might have a negative impact on your recuperation since it can induce perspiration, dislodging hair transplants, straining, and infection.
Sweating When we work out, we sweat. Sweating might pose significant dangers to your hair transplant recovery. Sweating might irritate your scalp at a time when it is very sensitive following your surgery, which we shall discuss further later. You should also avoid sitting in the sun for at least two weeks following your hair transplant treatment.
Displacing hair grafts The first 5 days following your treatment are critical because you can easily remove hair transplants while they mend from straining or yanking the grafts. With movement, you enhance your odds of this happening. Heavy activity should be avoided during the first 14 days to avoid, as it can also be unpleasant to the scalp.
Straining It may sound strange, but it is true that straining during exercise might boost the likelihood of hair transplants springing out. This is because straining raises the pressure on your scalp.
Infection Gyms are not the cleanest places, and it will be tempting to touch the transplanted area while working out. This might bring dirt, debris, and perhaps an infection into the region where your newly transplanted grafts were inserted. This isn't ideal, especially during the first 14 days when the scalp is recovering quickly. As a result, we recommend avoiding gyms for the first 14 days following a hair transplant.
After 7 days, patients can conduct light workouts that do not cause them to sweat, such as walking. After 14 days, patients can engage in strenuous activity that causes them to strain and sweat. Patients who swim or participate in contact sports such as boxing must wait one month before resuming their activities.
