Mostly patients take off from all over the services from a couple of days to a week for their FUE procedure hair transplant. Recovery after treatment is fast but, most patients are worried about their haircuts mostly men are worried related to their looks and to be shaved to the skin in donor area. It takes about 10 days for the donor zone to look fully healed. Because of the shave of the head from back, taking 7-10 days off is reasonable so that there will be no trace of transplant. The biggest problem is short hair cut at the back of your head because it takes 7-10 days off is reasonable so that there will be no trace of the transplant. The one of biggest problem is your short hair cut behind your head which will be long enough by 10 days also.
The process of FUE is treated just like a regular hair transplant with regard to the recipient area, but the contributor area has unlock wounds which require daily washing with water and shampoo. Within three days of surgery you can resume full activities, heavy exercises if you wish. The recipient area requires daily washes as well as free from crusts. Some patients recommend the use of sponge and supply with a surgical sponge to fill it with soapy water and press on the recipient area daily. By repeating this in routine, all the crusts can be washed off without losing any grafts. If the crust are present, use a tip and dip into soapy water, and roll it on the crusts and that will lift them off without dislodging them, but never rub them, just roll the Q on the recipient crust. I like to see no evidence of any crusting area and the crusts from donor area goes in week.
