Patient Pre-Op & Post-Op Instructions


The Next Chapter of You Begins Now!

They say a great story has a beginning, a middle and an end. Your hair restoration journey will as well.

Your next chapter begins at your first consultation appointment when you and your Ziering surgeon determine the cause of your hair loss and agree on a customized treatment plan. Then we go to work! 

We begin planning and preparing for your surgery well in advance of your actual surgery day, carefully selecting a team that has experience with your specific type of hair and hair transplant procedure.  We ask that you do your part, too, by following the prescribed Pre-Operative Instructions. 

Next comes your day of surgery.  Most patients arrive on surgery day with a sense of excitement mixed with some nervousness about having hair loss surgery.  We understand, and your Ziering Team will be with you every step of the procedure. Every day we are helping our patients write a new chapter in their lives.  During those early days after your surgery, how you care for yourself and your newly transplanted hair makes a difference in the final surgical outcome. This is where the Post-Operative Instructions are key. These instructions are a guide to delivering the best result possible for your surgery. We encourage our patients to participate in our Post Op Healing Program to speed healing and minimize down time.

The days and months that follow while you eagerly wait to feel the first signs of your transplanted hair growing can seem long and like nothing is happening. Then at about 3-4 months, you will begin to notice the first signs of your hair grafts beginning to grow. That moment when you realize your appearance is transforming as your grown in hair becomes more visible at 6 – 8 months, signals the end of the long, anxious wait. 

Complimentary Post Op Visits are scheduled for you at 6 months, 12 months and 18 months.  We look forward to celebrating your final outcome at 12 – 18 months.

Every Ziering hair transplant tells a story.  We may not be with you on that moment you realize that you have lost a noticeable amount of hair, but we will play a significant role in your next chapter – the one where restoration and renewal begins.
