Is It Safe to Go Swimming, to take a Turkish Bath/Sauna After Having a Hair Transplant?

Thanks to the developments in technology, hair transplantation is now a process that is implemented without any setbacks. People who have the problem of hair loss can easily have the hair they desire in place of their lost ones with the hair transplantation method they choose.

FUT and FUE methods are commonly preferred in hair transplantation. The patient’s healing period following the transplantation process differs depending on which one of these methods is implemented. In other words, the method used in the operation determines the time when you can go swimming or take a Turkish bath or a sauna after having a hair transplant.

FUT Method in Hair Transplantation

In the FUT method that people prefer in hair transplantation, the area where the donor follicles are harvested is stitched after transplantation. When the patient is able to go swimming or take a Turkish bath or a sauna is determined depending on the healing period of the wounds after the FUT method, which is kind of similar to a surgical operation. If the stitches are plenty, then the healing period will last longer.

Even though hair transplantation with the FUT method, which is kind of similar to a surgical operation, isn’t preferred by many people, those who have problems regarding their hair follicles have their hair transplantation with this method. Compared to hair transplantation with the FUE method, going back to the normal way of living takes longer in hair transplantation with the FUT method. But it is cheaper than hair transplantation with the FUE method.

FUE Method in Hair Transplantation

In hair transplantation with the FUE method, which is described as a non-surgical hair transplantation operation, each follicle is harvested and then placed in the recipient area one by one. Wounds that occur after hair transplantation with the FUE method heal within 10 days completely.

People who had a hair transplant with the FUE method can return to their normal lives after 10 days from the operation with the healing of their wounds. The patients can go swimming, take a Turkish bath or a sauna 10 days after hair transplantation with the FUE method. But they should not be exposed to direct sunlight. In addition, in hair transplantation methods other than the FUE method, how long the person, who has a hair transplant, has to wait before being able to go into environments such as a Turkish bath or a sauna increases. Hair transplantation with the FUE method offers many advantages both in the operation and the healing period.
