Can I smoke and drink when the hair transplant is over or would that prevent hair from growing properly?

You can’t smoke and drink after surgery unless you want to risk damaging your hair transplant results. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of infection. We recommend all hair transplant patients avoid drinking for at least two weeks before their surgery and two weeks after the surgery. This is an important step to get the best outcome possible.
