FUT Hair Transplant Before-Surgery

July 10, 2024

Before Surgery

At MedLinks, we advise patients to follow some basic precautionary measures before undergoing the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) procedure.

Here is the set of instructions that patients are required to follow:

Two Weeks before FUT

  • Patients should confirm their appointment with our experts after undergoing various laboratory tests.
  • Let our experts know if you are taking any medications, including blood thinners or broad beta-blockers.
  • Meet our experts to discuss any ongoing medical conditions.
  • Do not shave or cut your hair in the recipient areas. Keep the length of the donor area (back and sides) normal.

One Week before FUT

  • Patients should halt consumption of Vitamin B, E or any kinds of multi-vitamins that contain them.
  • Stop consuming anti-inflammatory medications (NSAID’s).
  • Let our experts know if you’re consuming any other prescription medicines, including heart and blood pressure medications.
  • Stop smoking a week prior to the procedure. Cigarettes contain nicotine that constricts blood vessels while decreasing the blood flow to the scalp.

Three Days before FUT

  • Stop consuming alcohol beverages as tt can result in adverse reactions and side-effects.

The Day of FUT

  • Wash your hair properly with a shampoo. Do not use any kind of gels, sprays or other hair styling products.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothes. Clothing that needs to be pulled on over the head may damage the grafts immediately after the surgery.
  • Avoid wearing any cologne, perfumes or deodorants.
  • Have a light breakfast. However, do not consume coffee or any caffeine beverage as it may increase bleeding and sensitivity towards medications.
  • Surgery uses sedatives and medications that can make you feel drowsy. We advise you to arrange a post-op transportation.
