How To Sleep After A FUE Hair Transplant

One of the main things which you may be wondering when doing your research is “how do I sleep after my FUE hair transplant?” We’re here to tell you the main key elements when it comes to sleeping after you’ve had your FUE hair transplant surgery that will greatly help your recovery!

  • Sleeping position

After your hair restoration surgery you’ll notice the first few days that the hair grafts and your scalp will be quite delicate which is a normal feeling. It’s important to avoid affecting or disturbing the newly placed grafts in order to prevent having a negative impact on the recovery of your hair transplant. Sleeping in specific positions will allow for the hair transplant to heal properly and also allows the hair grafts to settle to heal correctly.

  • Ensuring your sheets and pillows are clean

This is an extremely important point to keep in mind after getting your FUE hair transplant. To prevent infection and promote a comfortable sleep overnight it’s important to have clean sheets and pillowcases. Using specific detergent that is free from chemicals and allergens will promote a healthy healing process and will avoid irritating the area. We would also suggest applying a soft dark coloured towel to your pillowcase before you go to sleep as some leakage from the scalp is a possible but normal occurrence after getting a hair transplant.


  • Sleeping with your head and back elevated while avoiding sleeping on your stomach

While it might be a little difficult getting comfortable sleeping after your hair transplant, it’s crucial to sleep with your head and back slightly propped up on your pillows. Having a 45 degree angle the first few days after your surgery will help control the swelling and promote the healing process. If you usually sleep on your stomach you want to ensure that you remain with your head and back propped up on your pillows as sleeping on your stomach can increase swelling and affect the healing of your hair transplant results.

  • Maintaining a Healthy Sleep Pattern

As part of your recovery for your hair transplant surgery, getting rest afterwards is a crucial part to ensure that you’re recovering quickly and that your body is producing enough energy to heal properly. Once you have your hair transplant booked it’s important to get into a healthy sleeping pattern to adjust your body for those nights following the procedure. It is normally recommended that by the 10th or 11th day after the hair transplant that most patients are able to return to their usual daily routine and also return to their typical sleeping habits. As every patient’s healing is different it’s important to follow up and ensure you can go back to your normal routine after that time frame.

If you’re able to maintain your sleeping position, ensuring your sheets are clean, keeping your body in a good position while sleeping and maintaining a healthy sleeping pattern, it will not only promote a healthy and positive recovery but ensure that everything goes smoothly once you’re home from your surgery.

FUE Hair Transplant in NYC - Consultation

Many patients appreciate the fact that today’s FUE procedures don’t require them to be put to sleep with a general anesthetic. Your entire 5-6-hour session can be completed while you relax comfortably in our office. Local anesthetic and topical treatments numb the scalp so you can listen to music or watch TV without any discomfort at all.

For some people, hospitals and surgical settings are anxiety-producing, and for medical reasons or personal preference, they may wish to avoid general anesthetic. Now you can.

Why is The HARRTS System Faster?

 HARRTS reduces harvest time by half with selection, scoring and extraction combined in one step. Multiple handpieces also allow for two operating surgeons. The implantation phase utilizes patented suction-assisted piston devices. At the same time, the practitioner has greater precision capability for depth control and speed, compared with leading FUE devices.  In the hands of experienced surgeons, HARRTS is efficient and fast because it is a more finely tuned instrument.


HARRTS - The Less Invasive Option

This is the least invasive process for hair transplantation yet. Our clients no longer face long, deep incisions to heal from and the related risks. Concerns about large punches that may be inaccurate, inconsistent, or visible are a thing of the past. Fully robotic transplantation rather than human graft dissection reduces scalp trauma, discomfort, and recovery time. That translates to much greater convenience, and better outcomes. 

What Are The Benefits of an Automated System?

Digital depth control, automated suction and suction reversal removes finicky processes that are prone to human error. Android controlled smart settings ensure flawless, consistent results and turn multiple steps into a fluid motion.  
FUE hair transplant patients in NYC have confidence in intelligently designed, scientifically tested systems with proven track records.
Robotic automation also means surgeon friendly. The HARRTS guided process doesn’t eliminate the need for a skilled surgeon, rather their strategy and guidance work synergistically with HARRTS to bring their vision for your hair transplant to life. 
In the context of hair transplant surgery, differences measured in fractions of millimetres matter. Regardless of your practitioner’s angle or change in position, consistency is maintained throughout the procedure.
