Hair Replacement Recovery
Recovery after hair replacement surgery is usually fast. Most patients experience only minimal and transient discomfort. When present, discomfort is usually brought on when sleeping on the surgical wound. This mild discomfort can often be alleviated by Tylenol® or Motrin®. A stronger analgesic can be taken but it is usually not necessary, as the discomfort is rarely ever more than mild. The grafts heal quickly, forming a brown “scab” which represents surface epithelium. The scab is shed at about 7 days post-op. The healing and the growth of the hair transplant can be expedited by use of a Graftcyte post-surgical kit.
