Running or weight lifting after Hair Transplant
It is obvious that prior to undergoing any surgery there would be a number of questions sweeping across your mind. However same could be the case once you are done with the surgery and still there would be some queries on cards such as going for running or weight lifting after hair transplant. Normally when you have undergone any operation or a surgery, it is very much likely that you will be advised by the surgeon not to engage yourself in any kind of activities that may involve some exertion.
If we look at how hair restoration surgery is performed it is two types. The one which is very common and known as strip removal method involves removal of a strip from the back of the head or donor area. The surgeon makes a cut in the donor area which is no more than 2.5 cm thick and 8 inches in length. After removal the donor area is close by sutures while the strip is divided into small grafts under the microscope which is then planted in bald areas of the scalp.
Since the method is quite invasive so it is natural that it will take some considerable time to recover. Besides, resuming normal activities may not be advisable with transplant done through this method like exercising or weight lifting. This is because any strain on the sutures may break them or damage the area. However, if you have got the latest FUE hair transplant done then the situation can be a bit different. As there are no cuts or sutures so you may be allowed to resume light activities.
No matter what method you choose for the surgery the most important thing you should do is follow the instructions as prescribed by your surgeon. You might be way too much conscious about your physical fitness but keeping in at a standstill for a couple of weeks will not bother you all that much. Hair transplant recovery unlike the other surgeries does not take all that much long. However, to be on the safe side you must avoid any strenuous workout activities.
