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.

10 days post ARTAS
It is completely normal for hairs to shed during the first few weeks post-transplant, especially as the scabs and crusts fall off during the first 10-14 days post-transplant. These hairs will then regrow over the next few months.
Always touch base with your hair transplant surgeon for any post-transplant concerns or problems.
All the best,
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
