What is the healing time after hair transplants?

While you may be feeling better within a few days of a hair transplant, it is wise to take an entire week to recuperate. You can begin shampooing your hair the day after the surgery and physically you will feel fine, but the appearance of your head will take about a week to return to normal. Swelling down to your eyes is common and may take 1-2 days to subside. Scarring around the follicles is also normal as the blood coagulates to keeps the hair follicles in place. The scabs should be healed within about a week after the transplant. You should be able to resume normal activities like swimming between 1-2 weeks after the surgery.
