Can I sleep normally after hair transplant?

After hair transplant, we generally advise the patient to sleep with head elevated in either supine position or on sides. It is better to avoid sleeping in prone or in head down position. It is always better to sleep with head elevation as sometimes patient may develop swelling on forehead and in this position swelling is less and subsides early. The grafted area is generally in the front so it is better to avoid contact of this area with surroundings or bed as this may dislodge the grafts. These precautions are generally to be taken for initial 10-12 days and after that it is absolutely fine to sleep normally as one wishes .
