No bandage is necessary with modern surgical methods. There is no permanent visible scarring. The same criteria apply, however, after a hair transplantation as after any other operation in the facial area.
■ Infection prophylaxis is given for 3 days after the operation. From the 3rd day the patient can wash his or her hair with a mild chamomile shampoo. The hair can then be washed daily. The hair transplants are fixed securely and firmly.
■ After a maximum of 2 weeks all crusts should have disintegrated with washing; crusts delay wound healing. Rough manipulation should be avoided, particularly in the 1st postoperative week, as there is a risk of postoperative bleeding.
The patient can be professionally and socially active again 1 week after the operation.
After 6 weeks vasodilating hair lotion should be used. The crusts disintegrate quickly with regular washing.
