Is it a good idea or even safe to have the PRP procedure done just 5 days after an FUE Surgery?

RPR post procedure
I recommend you do a PRP with the transplant or wait until 3 months post operative. At this point I'd probably wait as 5 days post operative can disturb the grafts.
You do not need PRP treatment before or after a hair transplant surgery. If someone has recommended this
You do not need PRP treatment before or after a hair transplant surgery. If your doctor has recommended this, it would be best to discuss the treatment with your doctor.
PRP Post Op
It should not harm the existing grafts to perform PRP. It might even help the growth. As long as the doctor is careful when doing so.
But speak to your nearest physician to discuss further.

PRP after FUE
I do PRP with almost every hair transplant procedure whether its FUE or FUT. Doing a PRP 5 days after your FUE procedure should not be an issue and it's likely that in my opinion it can help with the grafts if done correctly. However its always best to discuss directly with your physician to gain their experience and knowledge before proceeding.
PRP post procedure
PRP is powerfully effective post procedure to expedite healing and is also graft protective however i would recommend waiting at least 10 days to allow fusion of graft angles and resolution of any swelling as this can dilute the PRP that is injected rendering it less effective. Best practice is to have it with your procedure and then again in 3 months time post.
Post PRP make sure to avoid NSAIDs and cold compresses as this will hinder activation of the platelets.
typically we perform PRP treatments at the time of the procedure. At 5 days this may affect the procedure or may introduce infection to the recipient area. I recommend follow up with the surgeon who performed your procedure for a recommendation.
Prp after FUE
Having PRP makes no sense after a hair transplant. My mess around with the recipient grafts. They need to take root and then let them grow out.
Prp injections after a hair transplant
Prp injections can assist in accelerating the healing time after receiving a hair transplant procedure. Based on my experience, it can assist in preventing scar tissue formation, minimise shock loss and accelerate the growth rate of the transplanted hair follicles and yes, it is safe and good idea to have it after your hair transplant surgery but for sure it is better to consult with your surgeon to schedule your next prp sessions .
All the best
Safe to use PRP after 5 days post-op
It is safe and a great idea to have a PRP treatment 5 days post-op. We actually do a PRP treatment the day of the hair transplant procedure. We have done PRP treatments weeks before as well as weeks after hair transplant as well.
PRP After FUE
5 days after there's no problem with it. The effectiveness of PRP isn't scientifically proven but it won't cause any harm, either. If you want the procedure, by all means go for it.
