You will leave our office without bandages. The only sign of the procedure will be pinpoint crusts that form in the grafted area and remain for 7-14 days. Many patients are able to camouflage these crusts by combing the adjacent hair over the transplanted site, or by wearing a hat. Topical solutions may be applied after the procedure to accelerate the separation of the crusts. If you wear a hairpiece, it may be used to conceal the crusts after the first week, but should be worn as little as possible during the second week.
