This period is the most sensitive time to augment the fixation ratio. Until 1 week later, you shampoo not to scrub the transplanted part. Please start moistening wash with lukewarm water (35℃ー37℃, same as body temperature) from the night of 2 days later in order to prevent infection. How to do the moistening wash by just pouring tepid water (either of 3 methods) *To wet hair using mist like spray or weak shower, or to wet with lukewarm water using cup. Using lukewarm water is enough. Since thick shampoo liquid is hard to wash out, putting weak shampoo liquid and then pouring it with lukewarm water is good enough. No concern to wash the part other than the transplanted area with regular shampoo. Please shampoo the posterior donor area gently by hand and wash out the dirt by shower. * Please put very small amount of antibiotic ointment widely and thinly each time. * This ointment should be washed out well while shampooing.

Please read precaution regarding symptoms and side effects described below and accept the operation after enough understanding of these matters. If you have anything not to understand well, please feel free to contact us and ask us any question. ◆Symptoms and side effects seen right after the operation◆ 〈Pain〉Pain from donor harvesting area is very light. 〈Bleeding〉Bleeding from the wound which is made by graft resecting will naturally stop. Small amount of bleeding from donor harvesting area may be observed sometimes for several days after the operation, but it will stop naturally. A bandage which press whole donor area gently is wrapped in headband shape for 24 hours after the operation and it can be removed after noon of the next day.
◎〈Scabs and Redness at transplanted area〉Transplanted unit get dry and scabs are produced on the next day of the operation. Scabs are conspicuous for about 10 days after the operation. When you see people, it’d better to hide the transplanted part in some way. Putting cap or hat can hide the scabs. Some people can hide them with the hair style with existing hair. You can make it non-noticeable by putting keratin powder from after the 3rd day. You do not worry if you see that transplanted hair adheres to the fell out scabs. Hair root tissue in which transplanted hair grows has already fixed on the transplanted area. A little amount of redness may remain on the scalp from which scabs fell out, however, the redness will disappear naturally sometime. 〈Nausea〉Someone may feel light nausea or headache due to medicines using during the operation. It will get over naturally the next day. It rarely happens to require treatment. ◆Symptoms and side effects seen in several days after the operation◆ ◎〈Swelling on forehead or eyelids〉You may see swelling or livid bruises around the forehead or eyelids. The reason why it is caused is that anesthetic medicine liquid becomes to hang down by gravity. You do not have pain and maximum symptom occurs on the 4-5th after the operation. It is absorbed about 1 week later naturally and your face appearance becomes the one same as before. Avoiding face-down posture, and staying to face upwards for long time as much as possible for 2-3 days after the operation, this symptom can be prevented partially as anesthetic liquid falls behind. Cooling down swelling part may be effective. After removing the bandage winded above the eyebrow on the next day of the operation, it is good to massage the forehead above the eyebrows by hand from the center to the outside, which do not make the eyelids swelling as this massage disperses liquid under the skin to the outside. Please try it since this lymph-massage is relatively effective. The degree of swelling on the face or eyelids differs greatly among individual and it is hard to predict it beforehand. In addition, even in the same person, the progress differs each time in multiple times operation. In the worst case, eyelids may swell so that eyes do not open out, however, you must not concern yourself and just wait as the swollen goes down in about 1 week and your face returns to the original one absolutely. 〈Itching〉The sense of the scalp is dull and usually you do not feel itch. In case of feeling itch at a transplanted part, it is fine to take a commercial anti-itch medicine. You may lighten the itch by cooling the scalp or shampooing. 〈Hiccup〉Hiccup rarely occurs on the 1st or 2nd day after the operation. It will stop naturally, however there is a case in which hiccup continues for several days. When this symptom continues for long time, it may be treated by an internal medicine. Please contact us in that case. ◆Symptoms and side effects seen from several weeks to several months after the operation◆ ◎〈Temporary fall hair of existing hair after the operation〉It may occur that fall hair increases in part of existing hair (approximately 10-15%) at transplanted site and its surroundings in 1-4 months after the operation. It is called “Shock loss” and the specific reason has not been known. It occurs more in women. It is rarely seen in men. The hair may look thinner than before the transplantation. This is temporary fall hair due to the operation and as fair roots remain, this condition recovers in 6 to 12 months after the operation. In addition, as transplanted hair all comes out one year later, Hair becomes thicker than before the operation. Being patient for about 6 month until then. Using keratin powder to the area where you are concerned about thin hair, or trying thin hair to become inconspicuous by changing the part of the hair is useful. ◎〈Pustula〉Hair transplantation using your own hair produces new pore and it sometimes suppurates in order that bacteria enter in the pore. A few red eruptions like an acne in transplanted area seen in several to 6 months after the operation is diagnosed as folliculitis caused by suppuration. For the small one, pressing the content out by nail and pasting antibiotic ointment, it will get over. It sometimes becomes severe folliculitis (about 5-8mm in size), even though, it recovers by squeezing the pus out by needle. Please go to a hospital or a clinic to press the pus out or contact us when it is hard for you to handle it. Folliculitis occurs in donor site in 1 month after the operation causing the running of the red pus. It will heal in about 6 months naturally. You need to contact us because treatment by anti-biotics is effective when it prolongs. 〈Infection〉 Infection rarely occurs if you shampoo every day to keep the scalp clean. The mild infection sometimes occurs in the surface of the scalp. However, it heals with a cream or oral drug of anti-biotics in several days. Suppuration becomes so serious that surgical treatment for donor site or transplanted part may be required in some cases. 〈Paralysis〉Numbness or strange feeling like putting on a helmet may remain at post-transplanted forehead for from several days to several months caused by the influence of local anesthesia. It disappears naturally 6 month later and you do not have strange feeling. 〈Kink in the hair〉Transplanted hair when it stars to grow in 5-8 months after the operation may contain kinky hair such as crimpy or curly hair. Time passes and a kink in the hair becomes weak and in about 1-2 year, the hair quality becomes the same as the one in the donor harvested part. You can have straight perm when the kink is too strong. ◎ ◆ Scar of the donor harvested site ◆ The site where donor is harvested loses hair roots, so the hair does not grow there. Even if minimum size of punch is used for harvesting, in donor harvested site, the circle scar of about 1mm leaves in the same number as being punched out for harvesting. The scar becomes inconspicuous in 3-4 days after the operation. As a donor is punched out little by little in the wide area scattering, the scar being occurred by punching out the donor is not conspicuous to hide with the surrounding hair. When the hair grows till 1cm, the scar is not seen. ◎ ◆Progression of thin hair in future◆ Hair transplantation using your own hair is not the operation which stops the progression of thin hair. The newly transplanted hair keeps growing in all your life. However, the progress of thin hair occurs in the existing hair. In addition, there is a limitation to the number of the donor which can be used for hair transplantation using your own hair. When it is the case of thin hair in the wide area, the amount of the donor which gives back the original hair dense can not be harvested. To use limited amount of donor effectively, it is important to protect the existing hair. The progress of the thin hair can’t be stopped, but you can delay the speed of it. That is the role of hair growth agent. Preventing the thin hair of the existing hair, to maintain the existing hair, please keep doing the therapy with hair growth agent. To maintain the existing hair by the therapy with hair growth agent and to increase hair by hair transplantation using your own hair for the area where the hair gets thin is a good combination of the effective therapy. Protecting the existing hair with hair growth agent and covering the area where you care the thin hair with the needed amount of hair using hair transplantation with your own hair, you can enjoy the expecting amount and density of the hair for a long time. In addition, not to become unnaturally finished, it is important to decide the plan carefully regarding the height of fringes of the hair, design of the transplanted area, the dense of the transplantation, and the distribution of transplanted unit etc. ◆Other complications and accidental symptoms◆ It has been rarely reported the fixation failure in the case of hair transplantation using your own hair and the reason has been unclear yet. Poor blood circulation caused by heavy smoking or diabetes etc. is presumed to be a possibility of the reason for it. However, medical details are still unknown. When surgical operation is performed, complications or accidental symptoms which is not usually seen occur in rare cases. In any medical facilities, the possibility of these occurrence will not be made into zero. In mild case, rash against anti-biotics or by allergy, and in severe case, anaphylaxis shock caused by anesthetic drug may occurs. We have responsible to handle these occurrences of complications or accidental symptoms during or after the operation. We would like you to have understanding in regards to the possibility of complications or accidental symptoms caused by the operation when you receive this treatment.
