After hair transplant, one can start brisk walking or treadmill after 3-5 days. Light cardio regime can be started in 5-7 days after swelling has subsided and care should be taken not strain. Light and moderate exercises should be avoided till 2 weeks after surgery as straining and exerting may cause grafts to pop out. Lifting weights and heavy exercises should be avoided for around 4-6 weeks after FUE and 8-10 weeks after FUT. Heavy exercise in initial period may cause excessive sweating which in turn can cause itching in the area. Straining and flexing the neck during heavy exercise may cause scar widening also in cases of FUT.
