Is smoking e-cigarettes (vaping) OK after an FUE procedure? If not, how long should one wait before vaping again?

There are no studies on vaping and hair growth. In general smoking is considered bad for wound healing.

Smoking delays healing after any type of surgery or invasive procedure. This is not unique to hair transplant surgery.Good Luck

Vaping after FUE hair transplant?
Vaping or e-cigarette use delivers nicotine a powerful vasoconstrictor. Vasoconstriction diminishes blood flow, so it is not good for the transplant to decrease the blood flow to it. Good circulation brings oxygen, healing cells,and nourishment to the recovering tissues.
