Important preoperative instructions for FUT patients

In order for a hair transplant to be performed as pleasantly and successfully as possible, patients need to follow the various pre-operation instructions and restrictions. Following these instructions is not just important for the transplantation itself, but also for the healing process and the overall success of the FUT.
These instructions are available as a pdf file in the section Instructions & Paperwork. Please read these through carefully.

Pre-operation haircut / hair shave:

We advise you to let us cut the hair in the recipient area short. This is however not always necessary and we therefore advise you to discuss this with the surgeon. One of the advantages of short hair is that hairs can be implanted much easier, more accurately and more densely. The time needed for making the incisions and implanting the FUs is also much shorter and has a positive effect on the survival chances of hair follicles. 
In the section "Instructions & Paperwork" you will find a downloadable version of our brochure on the importance of a short hair-cut. Please read this carefully. Should you have any further questions, please contact us.

Physiotherapeutic preparation: scalp massages

Scalp elasticity is an important factor for any successful FUT. Please start massaging your scalp some 8 weeks before your Follicular Unit Transplantation. This should be done daily for 5 - 10 minutes in the mornings and evenings. Massage the back of your head in particular. In the section "Instructions & Paperwork" you will find our downloadable brochure on scalp massages. Please read this and follow the stretching exercises carefully. Should you have any further questions, please contact us.
