Smoking and its effects are well known to be harmful to the body. Tobacco smoke has been shown to be harmful to one's health in almost every aspect, including the lungs, cervix, vision, mood and emotional well-being, cholesterol, immune system, blood clotting, and so on. As a result, it should come as no surprise that smoking and nicotine can reduce your chances of having a successful hair transplant.
Smoking after hair transplant is not recommended.Tobacco contains toxins that are harmful to your blood cells. As a result of plaque buildup in the arteries or vessels caused by smoking, nicotine hardens and constricts blood vessels in the body. This reduces the amount of oxygen available to all of your internal organs. In essence, a smoker's body is less likely to be able to distribute anesthesia throughout the body, which can cause complications during surgery. If you are a smoker and are going to have a hair transplant, you have many questions about it.
Your doctor will educate you on the dangers of smoking and its effects on your health. It is usually recommended that you stop smoking a week before and two weeks after the treatment because the harmful compounds in cigarettes damage grafts and increase the likelihood of hair loss over time, especially if you have a familial propensity. A healthy scalp, on the other hand, is synonymous with a healthy head of hair. To maintain a healthy scalp, it is critical to stop smoking. As a result, it is advised that you refrain from smoking for at least 2 or 4 weeks prior to the procedure. Smoking after FUE can damage your hair cells.
Asmed requests that smoking be limited after a hair transplant, instructing all patients to refrain from smoking for two weeks following FUE hair transplant and other procedures.
The two weeks following your procedure are the most critical in terms of hair transplant recovery. As a result, smoking after a hair transplant surgery can have an ongoing impact on the procedure's success. As previously stated, smoking has an impact on the body's immune system, and a smoker will typically take longer to recover from a hair transplant than a non-smoker. Furthermore, smokers are more likely to develop post-surgical infections.
Recent research also suggests that smoking increases the risk of necrosis, or skin death. In severe cases, this can lead to hair transplant failure because the follicles are permanently damaged.
Asmed's experienced surgeons take every precaution to ensure a successful hair transplant. Patients will be given and explained hair transplant recovery guidelines during consultations in order to maximize their chances of success and achieve the desired look. However, surgeons have noticed a difference in the hair transplant recovery processes of smokers and non-smokers. Even if all pre- and post-operative procedures go as planned, smoking patients have problems with numbing, bleeding, and healing.
Contact Asmed for more information on smoking after a hair transplant and comprehensive information on how to maximize the success of hair transplant. Please keep in mind that all FUE hair transplant and other techniques come with a 12-month aftercare support team. This means they can ask medical professionals any questions they have throughout the hair transplant recovery and regrowth process.
Our patients' health and comfort are our top priority at Asmed. Our aim is to provide our patients with the best medical care possible. We provide detailed information about the procedure to each patient based on their specific requirements and conditions.
