Cigars and other tobacco products are well described for destroying and damaging the lungs’ system over time. Lung cancer, bladder cancer, throat cancer, and heart and blood vessel damage are all caused by smoking.
Let’s take a look at how smoking affects your Hair Transplant operation before we talk about whether you may smoke afterward.

Smoking Before Hair TransplantHestanbul-hair-transpant-smoking-turkey

Your doctor will advise you about the dangers of smoking and the impact it has on your health. It is generally suggested that you cease smoking a week before and two weeks after the procedure because smoking:

smoking for an extended length of time promotes hair loss because the toxic chemicals in cigarettes damage grafts and increase the likelihood of hair loss over time, especially if there is a familial tendency.

  • Has Negative Effects On Scalp’s Health

A healthy scalp equals a healthy head of hair. It is important to stop smoking in order to have a healthy scalp. Smoking harms the scalp by preventing nutrients from reaching the skin and lowering the quantity of blood and oxygen required to create new hair.
Furthermore, smoking has a detrimental impact on blood flooding, which is the cause of the grafts’ lack of nutrients.

  • Increases The Risk Of Bleeding

The use of cigarettes and tobacco products increases the risk of bleeding during hair transplantation. The absence of nicotine in the body causes more bleeding during the operation, and excessive bleeding lengthens the operation.

  • Shortens Grafts’ Life Cycle

During the surgery, there is a lot of bleeding, which makes it difficult to keep the grafts healthy. Smoking decreases graft stability in the scalp, decreasing the life cycle of the grafts.

Smoking After Hair Transplant

Nicotine constricts and stiffens blood arteries. The oxygen circle in the body is affected by the constricted blood arteries. This slows down the healing process. It might be seen as a low-quality surgery for the patient, particularly if the FUE technique took a long time to recover in both the donor and transplanted areas.

  • May Increase The Infection Risk

Depending on the procedure used, changes occur in the head after hair transplantation, although the little holes that contain the roots begin to flake throughout recuperation. Many viruses and bacteria are exposed to these little wounds. During this time, smoking raises the risk of infection in these areas. For smokers, this danger is far too great.

  • Negatively Effects New Hair

Cigarettes and other tobacco products prolong recovery time and increase infection risk owing to nicotine and carbon monoxide, as well as preventing new hair development after the surgery and causing thinning hair.

Apart from that, even if the procedure’s outcomes are satisfactory, you should stop smoking to safeguard your hair.

So You Can Smoke, But…

Smoking isn’t the only thing that leads to a failed hair transplant. However, as a precaution, it is necessary to stop smoking. Our doctors advise you to quit smoking a week before and two weeks after the surgery because it is critical.
