Hair surgery recovery time will average about two days of rest and taking it easy to two weeks before the sutures are removed. The following will help accelerate a hair surgery recovery time:

  • The patient will need to stop taking any aspirin for two weeks prior to the hair surgery
  • The patient will need limit high impact working out and exercise four days prior to hair surgery
  • Avoid alcohol and protein drinks two days prior to hair surgery
  • Stop taking vitamin E and multivitamins three weeks prior to hair surgery
