This below question was asked by a member of our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums and answered by Janna, the lead medical technician for Coalition hair restoration surgeons Dr. Ron Shapiro and Dr. Paul Shapiro.
I just had a hair transplant today (1500 grafts FUT). It’s been a long day and I am looking to go chill in a restaurant somewhere and maybe have 1 or 2 beers with my meal. Would that small an amount of alcohol the same day as the transplant really have any effect on my new hair growth? Is it better to avoid it entirely just to be safe?
As soon as you don’t need the painkillers, you should be free to drink.
