This patient has 1235 grafts placed into the corners of her hairline. The After photo was taken when she was 2 weeks post surgery. She showed many people and most people did not believe she had a transplant. None of the hairs have fallen out yet, although I would expect that the shedding of the transplanted hair would occur at between 2-3 weeks.
One of the most frequent requests we get are about how you can expect to look after a hair transplant, and many people imagine a deformed, scabby area. But our post surgical patients usually have no scabbing if they wash their hair diligently as we’ve defined it.
I’m sorry about the slightly different angles on the before and after photos. I messed up when taking the after photo so this is the best I’ve got until I see this patient again… but this still gives a good idea of what one can expect just a couple weeks after surgery.
