Exercising after FUE Hair Transplant

For my FUE hair transplant patients, I recommend avoiding rigorous exercise for at least a week. By week three, you will be perfectly fine to play volleyball. However if you are playing volleyball outdoors, I suggest wearing sun protection as scars may not have fully healed by then.

If you are concerned about your post operative care, it is best to contact your doctor.  Playing volleyball should not be an issue especially after 3 weeks.

Can I play volleyball 21 days after FUE surgery?

Thank you for posting your question, Every clinic has their own post-op protocol after a hair transplant. We suggest to reduce the amount of sweating and unnecessary sun exposure for 4 weeks after a hair transplant procedure. This can minimize sunburn, and infections. Hope this helps.

Activity post FUE

Although post operative instructions vary from physician to physician, the general consensus is that cardio activity can be returned to 1 week post op. After one week, I advise patients to return to all normal activities. The temperature and sweat won't hurt your new hair. Go have fun & live your life, your is safe!

Sports

After just one week you can play any sports but soccer where you must hit the ball with your head. Volleyball can be done after just a week
