I’m thinking of having a hair transplant done but I have a question before I bother to consult with you.
I attend college and with college come wild parties. I spend most of my time studying but I do go to atleast one part per month. I usually like to do cocaine at the party. I do this recreationally and it’s only one time per month at most.
I don’t think I would be able to give up my one party per month for a hair transplant. Is it safe to get a hair transplant if you know you are going to be doing a gram of cocaine every month for the post operative period?
Oh boy. So as a physician, did you expect that I’d be fine with telling you its alright to use cocaine at any point, let alone during your post-op period after a hair transplant procedure?! Come on, now. The obvious answer is to stop using illicit drugs, even if it’s just once a month. Cocaine is not only illegal, but it can also kill you.
I’m not your doctor, but I expect any doctor you talk to will have the same reaction to your question. Now that I’ve given my mini-lecture, here’s a link to another site where another physician has his take.
