Q: When can patients go in the sun after a hair transplant? — S.M., Glencoe, I.L.
A: Following a hair transplant, patients should protect their scalps from the sun for about a month.
This does not mean one needs to stay indoors. It just means that after a hair restoration surgery you should wear a hat or a good sunscreen when outdoors.
Sunburns on the scalp should be avoided, not just for persons having a hair transplant, but for everyone.Posted by
