A traditional hair transplant procedure such as FUT or "strip surgery" does require time off work. This technique involves a large incision at the back of the head to remove a section of hair follicles, which is then stitched back together. Recovery and time off work (typically at least a couple of weeks) is needed to recover and let the scar heal. Thankfully, today there are more innovative, less invasive options. Today's most advanced hair transplant technique is so delicate, you may not need to take any time off work.
We explain the most delicate and advanced technique below and why it could save you a long recovery period.
