Do's and Don'ts For a Safe Travel After Hair Transplant

A successful hair transplant process is of course done by a team of experts. You may be coming to Istanbul from a different city or a different country for a hair transplant, and you may have to travel.

Much of the planning done this way also includes details of where to go and where to stay while you recover. But equally important is how you will travel home safely after the hair transplant.

Traveling for a hair transplant is okay, but you must do your part for a successful outcome. So you need to take certain precautions for your journey home.

Do Not Rush To Return Home

The reason you're staying here for a while is to give yourself some time to rest and recover. We will also do your first wash. If a complication occurs, we easily intervene in this process.

A Travel Companion Wouldn't Be Bad

But don't worry if you don't have someone to accompany you, we take very good care of you. If you need to travel alone, we also provide a comfortable and stress-free journey from the airport to your hotel and to our centre.

Keep Blood Clots Away

Blood clots can form in your legs when prolonged inactivity allows blood to pool or thicken, such as when traveling by plane or car.

If a clot forms, it can travel to the heart or lungs and cause serious injury or even death. Compression stockings are a good idea, especially if you're going to fly or drive long distances.

Don't Get Thirsty

Water is an essential component of blood that carries the oxygen and nutrients necessary for wound healing.

We recommend drinking at least 1.5–2 liters of six to eight glasses of water a day to stay hydrated.

Plan Ahead To Minimize Inconvenience

The split seat or exit row seat will give you extra leg room to stretch your legs and make you more comfortable.
