Is all this scabbing normal post 7 days HT?
Thank you for your question. After the operation you will have bandages on your donor area which will be removed at the 3rdpostoperative day. We will wash your head and teach you how to take care with the donor and scalp area. You will be advised some products that you have to use after the operation. Your newly transplanted hairs will start to fall after the 3rd week which is a natural process after the hair transplantation. The new hairs will start to grow at the 3rd month and the complete results will be seen in 9 months of period.
You may not be washing your hair well enough. It is important to follow post operative instructions.

Congratulations on your hair transplant. We normally encourage patients to wash their hair with shampoo at the 5 day mark as the follicles are rooted by then. It is hard to tell whether the yellow/whitish deposits are as a result of infection but it is best to get in touch with your surgeon for a review. It is normal for scabs and hair to fall off at this stage.
