Immediately after the surgery, the patient is provided with all the advice he needs. The team of specialists will make the necessary medications for covering the implanted hair follicles as much as possible.
The receiving region doesn’t require special care, as it follows a very normal healing. From the third day after surgery onwards, the operated area must be washed properly. The first wash will be carried out by the team of specialists. In addition to this, the patient will have to continue taking antibiotics in order to avoid infections and edema.
Likewise, for the donor region only antibiotics and frequent washing will be needed; in a couple of days the healing is complete. Daily washing should continue for 7/10 days in order to remove the crusts, and encourage the growth of new hair.
The positive effects of the surgery are immediately visible; the almost definitive effects will show themselves month by month with thick, natural hair, beard and mustache after a maximum of 12/18 months, with the process’s completion. All this depends a lot on the patient’s age and on hair growth speed. On average, after 8/10 months, patients are happy with the result achieved.
