It is not usually necessary to shave the scalp for a F.U.T. procedure in Dallas.
You will be brought into the surgical suite, where you will be prepped for surgery and given a local anesthetic to numb the scalp. Surgery usually takes 2-4 hours.
Your head will be wrapped in a semi-permeable dressing to protect the transplanted follicles as the incisions heal. You’ll be able to return home shortly after the procedure, but you’ll want to be sure to arrange for someone to pick you up. Dr. Min and your technicians will advise you on caring for your scalp and new hair.
The recovery from F.U.T. hair transplant surgery in Dallas is relatively straightforward, but the first several days are very important. You may experience some sensitivity or mild pain in the donor and recipient site, as well as some itching (do not scratch!). You will have a semipermeable dressing on your head to allow for seepage. This will need to be changed daily for the first several days. You should avoid sun exposure as well as any strenuous exercise or contact sports until the dressing comes off (7-10 days). Shampooing will be important to dislodge any scabs that may adhere to the hair shaft, as they can increase the risk of losing the newly transplanted follicles.
You can expect to see many (sometimes all) of the transplanted hairs fall out within the first 7-10 days. Do not be alarmed! This is called “shock loss” and is normal. New hair will begin to grow within 1-3 months of the procedure.
