Hair Transplant Grafts "Popping" Out when Lifting Weights?

6/15/2009 12:30:15 PM

Question:

With todays ultra refined hair transplant techniques I've heard it's almost impossible for grafts to pop out when lifting weights after day 5 or so because the incisions are so small. Should losing grafts in this way be a real concern or is it nothing to worry about? Has this ever happened to anybody?

Answer:

Lifting weights on day 5 after hair transplant surgery is risky unless what you're lifting is extremely light and focusing on doing dozens of reps. That said it's highly unlikely that your transplanted hair grafts would "pop" out after five days. It's best to heed caution however for the first ten days since by that time, follicular units would have to be surgically removed.
