The Effect of Sport on Hair Roots
During sports, the blood pressure in the body rises, therefore this increase causes the pulse to beat faster. If the pulse beats faster, it may cause blood in the channels where the hair follicles are placed and damage the transplanted hair follicles. In addition to these, factors such as stretching and sweating of the body after sports can prevent the hair follicles from sitting in the channel where they are transplanted healthily. It is also recommended to take a few months break from violent impact sports. To do light-paced walks and simple exercises, it should be waited for 4-5 days after the operation, after this period, the patient should exercise carefully and in a measured way without tiring him/her and not raising blood pressure. This is a matter to be considered for the transplanted hair follicles to fit and develop healthily without being damaged.
