Hair transplant after heart Surgery

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I hope to find some information maybe here:

Father of a friend of mine is interested to do a hair transplant.

But- he did a couple of years ago a heart surgery.

I’m not sure but we understood the local Anastasia could be an issue for him.

someone know someone who did hair transplant after heart surgery maybe or know where I can find some information (except to ask his doctor).

because we understood some hair transplant doctors will proceed and do the transplant and some of them, won’t.

 

thanks!

Thank you for the mention @Melvin- Moderator

There are some protocols for anti coagulation therapy prior to hair transplants. In general, it is possible to proceed with surgery whether the therapy for thinning the blood is discontinued, lowered in dose or even completely stopped for few days. The decision on whether to continue with the medications or stop them or even reduce the dose depends on what type of condition he has, how long ago he had the disease and what sort of intervention he had done (stents etc). It is also important to see of he is a high risk or low risk individual for any recurring events. Nonetheless, the consensus is that surgery can be done even with medications that thin the blood. 
Furthermore, epinephrine use should be minimal and diluted in tumescent fluids. Injecting diluted tumescent fluids in the right layer of skin will help reduce bleeding without having to inject a lot of epinephrine. 

Dr. Taleb Barghouthi approved and recommended on the Hair Transplant Network. You can schedule a virtual consultation with me here.
