Many People are worried about the recovery period following hair transplant surgery. Though hair transplant surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure, it is a minimal invasive procedure performed only at 2 to 4mm skin depth. While performing hair transplant surgery either by follicular unit transplantation ( FUT ) / Follicular Unit Strip Surgery ( FUSS ) or by follicular unit extraction ( FUE ) / Direct Hair Implantation ( DHI / DHT ) the working depth is only below 4mm, which means hair transplant surgery is performed only at superficial hairs of scalp.
Recovery Time :
One need not to be worried about major complications and recovery time after their hair transplant surgery. Scalp has a very good vascularity and heals quicker after donar harvesting of hair grafts and after implantation into the bald area. As normal tissues heals after an injury, the transplanted area heals likewise.
Following implantation the grafted area looks whitish on the first day and on the second day it will look like brownish white and from the third day the scabs on the transplanted area looks blackish in color and starts to fall out once you start doing hair wash. All the scabs on the implanted area and donor area will fallout in 15 to 20 days time and skin starts to look normal.
Many in the past and even today use to be scared of hair transplant as many of them are misguided about the complications and recovery process. As a result of misguidence they choose artificial hair replacement methods like wigs, hair bonding / hair weaving. Today due to more awareness not only many men are preferring hair transplant surgery to cure their hair loss, hair thinning and baldness, but many women are going for hair transplant surgery as well.
