There are a lot of amazing benefits to hair transplant surgery. When you are losing large amounts of your hair or your hairline has begun to recede dramatically, transplant surgery can save your hair and bring it back to its most healthy and voluminous. Even so, there are certain steps you will need to follow after your procedure to ensure the best results possible. In a lot of cases, sleeping can be quite the challenge depending on your treatment area. Here at The Hair Loss Recovery Program, we want to talk about sleeping after hair transplants and how you should do it to avoid any complications & achieve the treatments maximum effect.

The Rundown

There are a number of different ways you can ensure your treatment heals the right way. Our team would like to list some of these ways below. 

  • The best position to sleep is on your back. Also ensure that your head and back are raised a bit and tilted back in this position. In a lot of cases, resting on your stomach will potentially damage your transplanted hair. Lying on your back also prevents the possibility of germs and dirt entering your treatment area since your head is elevated.
  • Use a bigger pillow. When you use a larger pillow, it will keep your head raised and cushion the treatment area so it is less likely to get damaged. This may initially feel awkward, but once you sleep this way for a few days and the treatment area begins to heal you can start sleeping on smaller pillows.
  • Ensure the pillow is soft and positioned properly. A softer pillow guarantees your treatment area is not receiving as much friction when your sleep, making the healing process much easier. Also be sure it is positioned close to your neck for effective elevation.

Avoiding Contact to Treatment Area is Essential

When being certain that your hair transplant stays intact, avoiding as much contact as possible is important. To do so:

  • Try to keep your treatment area away from the cushion. Say, for example, you got the top of your head treated. If this is your situation, simply add enough elevation and pillows so that the sides of your head are cushioned but the top remains open and away from any surfaces.
  • Lie down with pads or pillows on your knees. This can help decrease any strain you may feel when elevated lying down.

Hygiene, Hygiene, Hygiene

For a few days after this treatment, you want to be certain that you’re taking care of your treatment area as best as possible. This means making sure all of your sheets and pillows/pillowcases are clean before sleeping on them.
