Q: Can I sleep as I normally do after a hair transplant? — G.C., Los Angeles, CA
A: We ask that you sleep on your back, with your head elevated on a few pillows. By raising your head, the pillows decrease any swelling that normally occurs after the hair transplant. We also use a small injection of cortisone given in the arm to help decrease swelling.
