Hair transplant; Does smoking pot affect hair post FUE treatment ?

THC and Nicotine with hair transplant.
Anecdotally with our patients whom smoke marijuana regularly (2-3x/day) we've noticed a 1 month delay to the onset of growth but once growth occurs, the velocity of the growth catches up with non-thc smokers.
There are no studies that specifically indicate that it would impact your FUE results. However, smoking of any kind can restrict blood flow which could theoretically impact your grafts. I would recommend waiting at least a month before any kind of smoking.
Smoking may affect hair transplant results. This includes Follicular Unit Extraction as well as smoking marijuana.
