One month post op FUE

at one month post op you can return to your normal routine including shaving your head without influencing the results.

1 month post op

you should ask the hair transplant surgeon who did your procedure for his/her recommendation. typically I tell my patients once all the scabs have fallen off and the areas are healed they are free to clip the hair as short as they want.

Hair cut 1 months after F"UE

IF all of the crusts have been off for a week, you can do what ever you wish for cutting the recipient area, no problem

Post op hair shaving

In my practice I do not recommend my patients to shave or trim the recipient area at least a six months after the operation .  Better to contact your Doctor for his opinion .
