Hair loss, hair loss or baldness is a problem for many people. This problem, which affects both women and men, can be easily treated in parallel with the developing technology today. The procedure is an invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia rather than a surgical operation.

Patients generally prefer to have hair transplantation treatment in the spring and winter months. However, there are also patients who prefer the summer months for this procedure for various reasons. There is a high concentration of foreign patients who come from abroad and want to have hair transplant treatment in our country and then go on a tourist trip.

There is no specific season for hair transplant treatment, the procedure can be applied in four seasons. Generally, there is a belief that hair transplantation in the summer months causes infection due to sweating, but since there are no incisions during the procedure, the recovery is fast and there is no risk of infection. If the rules recommended by your doctor are followed in the first 15 days, which is the most important stage after the application, there is no harm in performing the procedure in the summer season.

Protect From The Sun After Hair Transplant Treatment

The benefits of the sun to our body are innumerable, but uncontrolled and unprotected exposure to ultraviolet rays negatively affects the hair as well as the skin. Sunlight weakens healthy hair, dries and weakens the hair strands, and also affects its color. People who have undergone hair transplant treatment can also be adversely affected by sunlight. It is recommended that they be protected from sunlight and use a hat between 10:00 and 16:00, especially within 15 days following the treatment. After the hair transplantation treatment, the scalp that is crusted in the treated area is adversely affected by the sun’s rays.

As recommended by many doctors, it is inconvenient to swim in the sea for the first 15 days after the procedure. There is no harm in swimming after the first 15 days, but as we said before, it is necessary to use a hat to protect the treated hair area from ultraviolet rays, which may adversely affect the treated hair area, and to rest in the shade and in a cool place during the hours when the sun’s rays are strongest.

Other Considerations

Other issues to be considered during the first 15 days following the hair transplant treatment can be briefly listed as follows:

  •  Sports activities should be suspended.
  • You should definitely stay away from hairdressing services.
