How to Take Care of Your Hair Transplant the First Ten Days

10/18/2009 10:49:06 PM

Question:

How and when do the transplanted grafts fall out? Do you rub them until they shed? Please let me know?

Answer:

Your hair restoration physician should have provided detailed postoperative instructions, including how to wash and take care of your newly transplanted grafts the first ten days after hair transplant surgery.

The following link should not replace your physician's instructions, but it's a guide on how to take care of your grafts, wash your hair, and tend to the scabs. The transplanted hairs themselves will begin to shed between 2 to 4 weeks while the scabs are typically gone before then. See "How to Wash Your Hair After a Hair Transplant" for more information.
