I generally don't restrict exercise after FUE hair transplants except for the first week unless you are into contact sports that you may want to wait for a month.
FUE hair transplant
I have been performing follicular extraction transplantation using NeoGraft® and ARTAS® for the past five to seven years. In general, I advise patients they can start using vasodilators such as Rogaine® by six weeks postoperatively. In addition, I tell most patients they have to wait approximately one month to start intense workouts to ensure stable neovascularization and graft healing.
Following these conservative postoperative instructions, most patients achieve excellent results and do not compromise their postoperative graft take.
I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.
