  • Can a Hat Be Worn After a Hair Transplant?

After a successful planting process, it is necessary to pay attention to some issues. Your doctor who organized the operation will warn you about this. One of these warnings is wearing a hat after hair transplantation.


Recovery Time After Hair Transplant

It is expected that the grafts will settle into place until 1 week after the transplantation. At this stage, the planting area should be treated very carefully. No contact should be made to the area for at least 48 hours after hair transplantation.

When to Wear a Hat After Hair Transplantation?

First of all, you should consult your doctor about this. Your doctor will tell you when you can wear a hat anyway. After the operation, the surgeon who performed the operation will call you to the clinic. Periodic examinations are carried out for a certain period of time and thus the patient is checked.

A hat can be worn when the grafts sit on the hair follicles. This period is on average 1 week. For some people, this period may be longer

Why Do You Feel the Need to Wear a Hat?

The main reason for this need is psychological. After hair transplantation, people generally want to hide the operation area. Another reason is the protection of the planted area against external factors. The hat provides protection against factors that can damage the process such as rain, wind, sun and dust.
