Will Hair Transplant be Detectable Immediately After Surgery and What is Typical Appearance Post-op?February 16th, 2006
Q: Is it possible to have a hair transplant that is totally undetectable immediately following surgery?
A: Not unless a person has a fair amount of existing hair that can cover the transplanted area.
Although surgical hair restoration techniques have improved dramatically over the past ten years, and wounds are so small that patients may shower the morning following the procedure, a hair transplant will be detectable for the first week. During this period, there may be some swelling that settles down on the forehead and some crusting and some residual redness.
Please visit the section on the Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration website entitled After Your Hair Restoration for more details. Also see the Instructions After Your Hair Restoration Surgery page regarding the normal post-op course following a hair transplant.Related Posts:
