Deposit and Payment Policy: We require a $1000 deposit two weeks in advance to hold and confirm your appointment. Please make the check payable to SUMMIT HAIR RESTORATION..

Wash the sutured donor area daily with a gentle but firm rubbing in a side-to-side direction. You can wash more aggressively in the sutured donor area. Sutures should stay in for 7-10 days depending on your skin characteristics.
Gently spray the Post op spray to the grafted area every 30-60 minutes while awake until the bottle is empty. Do not blot off, and make sure it does not get in your eyes.
Sleep on your back using 2-3 pillows or a neck roll pillow to keep head elevated above the heart for 3 nights, If slight bleeding occurs from the graft site or donor site, apply gentle but firm pressure to the area with the gauze provided or a clean cloth. APPLY EVEN PRESSURE WITH THE PALM OF YOUR HAND FOR 5 MINUTES. The bleeding should stop. If it does not, call us. If the bleeding continues and for some reason you can’t reach us, go to the nearest Emergency Room.
Place a towel on your pillow for the first 2-3 nights to protect your linens in case of slight bleeding.
Apply ice to the FOREHEAD only for 15 minutes 3-4 times a day for the first 3 days. This will decrease the chance of swelling. On occasion, swelling can still occur (in 10% of patients). It is not dangerous, is painless, and will not affect the growth of the grafts.Bend at the knees instead of bending over at the waist when tying shoes and picking up objects. Keep your head above your heart at all times.
Folliculitis on rare occasions may develop at the graft site. These look similar to acne with pimple-like lesions. If this happens, apply moist warm soaks and antibiotic ointment to the areas 3 times a day. PLEASE NOTIFY US IF THIS OCCURS, AS WE LIKE TO PRESCRIBE SPECIFIC MEDICATION FOR THIS PROBLEM.
If you experience any post op itching you can use the following: Jojoba Oil (Bath & Body has this product), Botan Oil Shampoo by Nexus, and Bio Jojoba Shampoo.
Numbness above the suture line and at the graft sites most likely will occur. This is normal and will begin to resolve in 6-8 weeks. However, in some people it can take as long as one year.
Do not drink alcohol for 48 hours after the surgery. Alcohol thins the blood and may cause bleeding.
No exercise for 5 days after the procedure. It could result in increased swelling or lost grafts. After 5 days mild exercise can be resumed, and after 10 days normal exercise can be resumed.
You should avoid swimming for 1 week after surgery.Do not sunburn the grafted area. The skin of the grafts may burn easily. It is OK to go into the sun but do not sunbathe without some protection for this sensitive skin.
A Prescription for Pain Medications will be given to you on the day of your procedure.
NON-PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS: You may take TYLENOL or MOTRIN instead of the prescription pain medication.
