At two months post op, using hair fibers is completely fine. iI fact, you can likely return to all normal activity at this point. There is not much you can do to harm the grafts at this stage and hair fibers can help fill in the area while waiting for your new hair growth..

Generally you would be safe to use Toppik starting at two weeks. So at two and a half months it should really be safe for you to use.

Topik after a transplant

every physician is different with post operative instructions. However, almost all physicians agree that you can return to products when the scabs are gone. Therefore, at 2 1/2 months post op there aren't any restrictions for use of topik.
