Yoga After a Hair Transplant

Yoga-After-Hair-TransplantQ:

Tomorrow will be 4 weeks after my hair transplant procedure. I just wanted to know if there are any restrictions at this point. Can I return back to yoga practice, I wasn’t sure because it requires a lot of keeping your head bent over?

A:
Yoga and other exercises can increase the tension of the donor wound edges after receiving a strip hair transplant. I would recommend avoiding these activities in the first four weeks following a hair transplant. You can resume your regular exercise routine after the first month, with no limitations. Since, tomorrow will be 4 weeks after your procedure, you can start going back to yoga practice.
