Following medications need to be taken:
- Tablet Augmentin (Antibiotic) - 3 times a day, for 4 days
- Tablet Combiflam (Pain Reliever) - 3 times a day, for 4 days
The medications are administered to reduce the discomfort that comes associated with swelling and pain after the procedure.
Blood Analysis is required for:
1)CBC (Complete Blood Counts)
2)BT, CT or PTI/INR
3) Viral Markers - Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV testing.
The patient should have received the results of requested tests at least two days prior to the surgery. The patients can choose to email the copy of the results to the clinic with final copy to be presented at the day of the surgery.
Request to the patients
The hair transplantation patients are requested to inform us about the intake of their regular medications if any. If they consume any kind of multivitamins, supplements for vitamin B or E, they will be required to stop these at least two weeks before and after the procedure. This is because their intake may interfere with their healing phase and bleeding as well. The patients should also stop using minoxidil two weeks prior to the surgery. Any type of anti-depressants, anti-coagulants, or beta blockers need to be stopped. Intake of aspirin, herbal supplements, or anti-inflammatories should also be stopped a week prior to the procedure.
My hair transplant surgery was very successful at Kyra Clinic and now my hair look amazing. I can sport the short hairstyle without any trouble and I can color my new hair as well. Sincere thanks to Dr. Gawri.
