Alcohol after Surgery

Alcohol doesn't really affect hair growth or your transplant results, assuming you aren't doing anything to harm them while drinking. Now that you're at 2 months it really poses no risk, and you're free to do whatever you want as long as you're doing it responsibly!

Drinking after FUE

After 2 months you are alright to basically do whatever you want without it affecting your results. Smoking can affect your results because it restricts blood flow. But drinking alcohol won't do much harm.

Drinking alcohol after hair transplant

once you have healed, after two weeks you can return to your normal routine. Your hair will start to grow in after three months.
