Following hair transplant surgery, you should relax comfortably for a day, with only minimal activity. You should feel comfortable about returning to work in a day or two, providing your work does not involve strenuous physical activity. The recovery time following your hair transplant procedure is usually relatively brief, assuming that sensible guidelines are adhered to.
Expect a call the day following your procedure to check up on you and see if you need to come to the office (most patients do not).
For the first one to three nights after your surgery, plan on sleeping with your head elevated at a 45-degree angle. This will help reduce swelling, which will help keep you comfortable.
