When can I exercise after a hair transplant?

Exercise after hair transplantation

The decision on when to exercise hard after a hair transplant really depends on whether a patient had their hair transplant via FUE or strip methods.

For my FUE patients, I like them to go easy for 7 days and then light exercise from day 7-14. For strip patients, I like them to go easy for 10 days and hit the gym or exercise hard after day 14. Widening of the donor scar is my main concern for those who exercise too early after strip surgery.
