Foreign patients often prefer the summer season in order to have a hair transplant and to visit the touristic places of our country.

Domestic hair transplant patient is confused about which season thay should have hair transplant.

Which season is more suitable for hair transplant treatment, should it be done in winter or summer? We consulted the Emphair Hair Transplantation Center, which is an expert on the subject:

“This question is a general question conveyed by many people who are interested in hair transplantation due to the problem of alopecia, hair loss.

However, the truth is that we cannot generalize about the season or month when hair transplantation is appropriate.

Hair transplantation can be scheduled at any time. The time of your hair transplant is mostly related to your social life, not the season.

Let's say you had a hair transplant in the summer, it will be enough to stay away from the sun and not to swim for the first ten days after the operation.

Let's say you had a hair transplant in winter, we recommend you to wear a hat for the first few days to protect yourself from the cold. There is no difference between hair transplantation in summer or winter or even in spring.

Ideal Time for Hair Transplant

hair transplant The ideal time for hair transplantation is the right time when the patient feels ready for the procedure and is suitable for the work schedule.

It is possible to have a hair transplant at any time of the year: winter or summer, morning or evening.

Time and season are not the main limiting factors for this procedure. The selection of the appropriate season and time for hair transplantation does not affect the success of the operation.

The only thing to keep in mind is that this process can take up to eight hours or even several sessions if needed. If the operation is started in the morning, it can be finished in the afternoon. If it starts in the afternoon, it can be finished in the evening.

Temperature changes do not affect hair transplantation. The reason why the summer season is often preferred by people is that summer is the time when most people take a break from their work routine.

They prefer to experience the healing process within this range. We have some suggestions for our patients who will have hair transplantation in the summer, now let's talk about them:

  • We sweat a lot in the summer, which can complicate the healing process. To prevent bacteria from becoming a problem in sweat, you may need to clean the area more often or avoid activities that cause you to sweat.

  • You should also be careful about sun exposure because you don't want your scalp to be exposed to the sun's harmful rays.

In winter, school or work routine is more intense. But we have suggestions for our patients who create a gap and have hair transplant in the winter months.

Hair Transplantation in Winter

  • Protect your head from the cold.

  • You can use a soft cotton cap or hat.

So everything is up to you. The final decision is entirely yours and as long as you are consistent with follow-up care, the timing you choose will not affect your recovery.

It is much more important that you research and choose the best hair transplant center, not the seasons. Experience, skill, is the best way to ensure success.

In summary, when is the right time for hair transplantation? Anyone who feels ready can have a hair transplant at any time of the year, be it summer or winter. “
