Will in-flight cabin pressure
cause my new hair transplants to bleed?
Q. I will be flying after my hair transplant and I want to know if the cabin pressure will cause it to bleed.
A. No it will not. We have been doing hair transplants for 22 years and 30% of our patients take an airplane flight the very next day. And some fly the same day. We have extensive pre-op recommendations, which if followed carefully, make your chance of in-flight bleeding minimal. Therefore, please follow the directions exactly and don't hesitate to call with questions. We have a 24/7 nurse that can answer all your questions and Dr. Lawrence Shapiro is always available as well. Patients: Login here to review your pre-op recommendations.
