How Does Weather Affect Hair Transplant?

In case you’ve already made up your mind about going for a Hair Transplant then you might already be aware of the techniques, basics, after-care, and the other aspects of a Hair Transplant Journey. However, one question that might still be popping on your mind could be “What’s the best weather to get a Hair Transplant?”

Since getting a Hair Transplant is more or less a life-changing decision that also involves a lot of time and investment, it’s not unusual for patients to think about when to get the Hair Transplant done. Today, Dr. Gaurav will talk about this and elaborate on how to make an informed decision in order to get optimal results.


Is It Ok To Get a Hair Transplant In Warm Weather?


During the summer, it is quite normal to sweat while going about your daily routine. Due to this, in case you are planning for a Hair Transplant in the summer then you may need to first evaluate whether excessive sweating can impact your results and the recovery time or not.

Generally, patients are advised to rest for a few days after their hair transplant. With the rest, they are also advised to avoid sweating. Sweat doesn’t affect the hair transplant results or even the recovery time, however, after getting a Hair Transplant done, it is important to keep your scalp clean.


How To Keep The Scalp Clean?


Whenever you step out in the sun, ensure that you wear a loose hat or cap to protect the scalp from direct sun exposure, as direct sun exposure can obstruct the natural healing process.

Getting a Hair Transplant in the summer months is absolutely fine as long as you can keep the scalp clean and avoid direct exposure to the sun for a few days post-surgery.


Is It Ok To Get a Hair Transplant In Cold Weather?


In the winter months, there is exposure to colder temperatures. It is important to note that contrary to popular belief, colder temperatures do not interfere with the healing process.

However, it is still important to keep the scalp protected, therefore the exposure of the scalp to harsh winter elements is never advised after the surgery too. Just like a transplant done in the summer-time, you may wear a loose hat after a few days of the surgery.




As we have concluded, the weather does not really have any impact on your surgery or aftercare. The recovery process and results will depend on other factors like the technique opted for, the experience of the surgeon, and so on.
