When Can I Take Aspirin Before and After Hair Transplant Procedure?

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.
