10 days after an ARTAS procedure...does this look right to you?
Thank you for posting this question. It appears very good, and I don’t think you have anything to worry about. I’m answering this question 10 months after you posted it, so by this time you should be nearing the full cosmetic result of your hair restoration. The work looks fine, and I am hoping you are enjoying a new frontal hairline. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Donor site after ARTAS
The donor site recovers very quickly following an ARTAS procedure. It is normal to have some shedding in the initial phases following your procedure. Do not be concerned by this. You should see your final results after about 9-12 months.

You should wash your normally at this point. You may also soak your head in a tub of water to help loosen up scabs.

10 day post op review.
Congratulations on your hair restoration. I'm sure you will be very pleased. It appears everything looks as anticipated based on the photos. At 8 days I recommend patients wash hair normally. To help the scabs, I recommend soaking your head in a tub or standing under the shower water stream for 10 minutes and gently massaging your scalp to remove the scabs.
Everything seems normal

It is impossible to tell how your surgery went or how it will turn out with photos. You will not see results for 6 to 12 months
Everything looks fine

Scabbing at 10 days post ARTAS
One can't tell from a photo if proper work was done. If the grafts harvested were nice and transection rate (damage rate) of the 1218 grafts was low and the method of putting them back into the scalp was done right, then the result will be nice.
Based on the simple photo, everything looks great .. congratulations.
