Hair Transplant Dubai

People generally understand smoking and its effects to be hazardous to health. Research has proven that tobacco smoking negatively impacts nearly every aspect of one’s health, including the lungs, cervix, vision, mood and mental well-being, cholesterol, immune system, blood coagulation, and more. As a result, it’s no surprise that smoking and nicotine can lower your chances of getting a successful hair transplant in Dubai.
We do not encourage smoking after a hair transplant. Tobacco carries poisons that are detrimental to the blood cells. Smoking causes plaque accumulation in the arteries or vessels, which causes nicotine to harden and constrict blood vessels in the body. This lowers the oxygen supply to all of your internal organs. In essence, smoking reduces the body’s ability to distribute anesthetics throughout the body, which might lead to difficulties during surgery. If you smoke and plan to have a Dubai hair transplant, you probably have a lot of questions about it.
Before a hair transplant, when should you quit smoking?
Your doctor will educate you about the dangers of smoking and its consequences for your health. It is normally recommended that you cease smoking a week before and two weeks after treatment since the toxic elements in cigarettes damage grafts and increase the probability of hair loss over time, especially if you have a family history. A healthy scalp, on the other hand, indicates a healthy head of hair. To keep a healthy scalp, it is necessary to quit smoking. As a result, it is recommended that you stop smoking for at least two or four weeks before the surgery. Smoking after FUE may harm your hair cells.
The impact of smoking on the results of a hair transplant is significant
Researchers have thoroughly studied the detrimental effects of smoking on various aspects of health. It is true that smoking has a negative impact on the success and long-term viability of hair transplant procedures. Smoking causes blood vessel constriction, which lowers blood supply to several areas of the body, including the scalp. A hair transplant requires adequate blood flow so that the transplanted follicles can absorb the oxygen and nutrients they require to grow.
Cigarette smoke contains nicotine and other toxic substances that slow the body’s normal healing process. This implies that a smoker’s hair transplant recovery period and potential complications could significantly escalate. Smoking weakens the immune system, increasing the risk of developing an infection. Following a hair transplant, smokers are much more likely to develop infections in the recipient and donor areas.
The survival and growth of the grafts used in a hair transplant determine its success. The considerations mentioned above, such as decreased blood flow and slower healing, explain why smoking reduces graft survival rates. Even if the grafts are successful, smoking can delay hair growth. Hair growth in transplanted areas may be weaker and thinner due to lower blood flow and oxygen levels.
Is smoking permissible following a hair transplant?
We must advise patients that smoking negatively impacts hair transplant outcomes and recovery time. We strongly advise individuals to refrain from smoking following a hair transplant to optimize the treatment’s effectiveness and facilitate a seamless healing process. Reasons why:
If you smoke immediately after a hair transplant, you will severely harm the blood flow to your scalp. Denying transplanted follicles the oxygen and nutrition they need to survive can lead to graft failure.
Smoking slows recovery because it disrupts the body’s normal functioning. A smoker’s wounds may heal more slowly in the days and weeks following a hair transplant, increasing the risk of complications and infections.
As previously established, smoking weakens the immune system, increasing the risk of infection. The scalp is more susceptible to infection following a hair transplant, and smoking heightens the risk. Smoking after a hair transplant is associated with poor outcomes. It’s likely that the transplanted hair won’t grow as thick as you’d like, and the end outcome won’t meet your expectations.
Why Should You Avoid Smoking?
After a FUE hair transplant, Al Borj Hair Clinic advises patients to refrain from smoking for two weeks after the treatment.
The two weeks following your treatment are important for hair transplant recovery. As a result, smoking after hair transplant surgery can have a long-term impact on the procedure’s success. As previously indicated, smoking has an effect on the immune system, and a smoker will usually take longer to recover after a hair transplant than a nonsmoker. In addition, smokers are more likely to develop postoperative infections.
Recent research indicates that smoking increases the chance of necrosis, or skin death. In severe circumstances, the follicles may be irreversibly destroyed, resulting in hair transplant failure.
The end
Al Borj Hair Clinic trained surgeons take all necessary precautions to ensure a successful hair transplant. During consultations, patients will receive and discuss hair transplant recovery recommendations to enhance their chances of success and achieve the desired look. However, surgeons have seen differences in the hair transplant healing processes of smokers and nonsmokers. Even if all pre- and post-operative procedures go as planned, smoking patients experience difficulties with numbing, bleeding, and healing.
