After New Jersey Hair Transplant

What Should You Really Look Like Right After A New Jersey Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplant Look

One of the most commonly asked questions from a prospective New Jersey Hair Transplant patient is, what will my hair look like right after the procedure?

This is a very good question to ask and understand because unfortunately, online research does not always paint an accurate picture. In fact, when searching for hair transplant results online, you may only see before and after pictures showing fully healed, fully grown hair transplant results and those pictures will be taken a year or more after surgery.

So, why don’t people post more pictures online and talk about the look of a hair transplant on day 1? There may be a couple of reasons for this, one of which is that there isn’t much to see by way of hairs at that point, and, the scalp will not look great according to most people’s standards.

The good news is that when carried out in a safe environment by a skilled hair transplant surgeon, a New jersey hair transplant leaves a minimal amount of redness on the donor and recipient areas, and this lasts only a few days. If the FUT (strip method) is used, a long incision is created at the back of the scalp and there will be sutures and mild redness present at this location. It takes about two weeks for a larger incision to be considered fully closed and healed.

During Hair Transplant Procedure

During a hair transplant procedure, donor hair grafts will be removed either with excision of a scalp strip that is then dissected under microscope, or the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method which removes hair grafts through tiny, individual punches extracted with a hand tool. FUE makes a micro incision 1mm or less in diameter at the back and side of the head where hair growth is most dense. Then, during either approach, small slits are created in the recipient area and grafts placed carefully in each one. The nature of these recipient incisions is that they close completely within a day or two and very little redness or swelling should be seen at the transplant sites. Because the incisions are so small, they do not require stitches or bandages.

Post-Op Care Instructions

You will not likely have any dressing or bandage placed over the treatment areas after FUE hair transplant.

You will be instructed not to press on or otherwise disturb the treatment area and to keep it clean. Your surgeon will let you know when it’s safe to shampoo as normal or to go swimming. You may see small scabs form at the transplant site and these will naturally soften and fall off in about a week.

Most New Jersey hair transplant patients choose to wear a hat or otherwise keep hair covered for the first week after their procedures. While you’re waiting for hair to grow in, scalp concealers can be used to help diminish the contrast between a pale scalp and sparse, new hair. It will be possible to see healthy new hairs growing in within a few months and your full transplant results within about 1 year.
