    Would these recommendations also apply to smoking marijuana? I’ve recently had a transplant and have not smoked (i don’t smoke cigarettes at all) since the procedure. I have a medical card for weed but will obviously hold off if it could potentially impact the result of the HT negatively.

    Thanks for your help,

    If you waited at least 10 days before smoking after your hair transplant, I’m sure that you have nothing to worry about. The redness may be normal discoloration of the recipient area after surgery. However, it would be wise to discuss it with your hair transplant surgeon just to be safe.

    The hairs you are seeing on your cap may be shedding of the transplanted hair follicles or shock loss. Again, this is nothing to worry about.

    All the best,
