What Is The Recovery Time After A Robotic FUE Hair Transplant?

July 15th, 2014

Dr. Wolfeld answers the following question: What is the recovery time before resuming normal activities after robotic FUE hair transplant?

Here is a more detailed summary of the video:

Dr. Wolfeld: Linear scars in the donor area of the scalp, if they have not healed, can stretch and widen with strenuous activities. However, because there is no linear scar after a robotic FUE procedure, one can resume normal activities almost immediately after surgery.

Nevertheless, some activities can affect the grafts in the recipient area, such as swimming. To protect those grafts, these activities should be avoided for approximately ten days, until the grafts are permanently implanted in the scalp.

In contrast, after an FUT procedure, there is a linear scar along the sides and back of one’s scalp. Again, unless it has healed, the scar could stretch and widen with strenuous activities. To avoid this, we recommend no strenuous activities for 2-3 months to allow for proper scar healing.
