When Can I Take Aspirin Before and After Hair Transplant Procedure?May 16th, 2005
Q: I am taking a baby aspirin to prevent heart disease and I heard that I should stop this medication before my hair transplant. How long should I stop for? — G.A., Fort Lauderdale, FL
A: You should discontinue the aspirin 10 days prior to your hair restoration procedure.
Other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) need only be stopped 3 days before the hair transplant.
Both aspirin and other NSAIDs can be resumed three days after surgery. ((Otley CC: Preoperative evaluation and management in dermatologic surgery. J Am Acad Dermatol 2006; 54:119-2))
