Can caffeine and antihistamines have an affect on Hair Transplant Graft survival and the final outcome?
Doctor Answers 4
At 16 days post-op your grafts are fairly well established so things like caffeine shouldn't really impact them. Even in the first few days they shouldn't have substantial impact.
Resuming habits after hair transplant
I am not aware of any study that shows caffeine or antihistaminies having any effect on transplanted hair. Of course avoiding medications or habits that result in vasoconstriction is always a good idea post operatively. You are already more than 16 days out from surgery and the grafts are well seated and have re-established their vascular system. You may resume all of your pre-hair transplant medications.
There is no reason to believe caffeine or antihistamines will affect the results of your surgery.
