Hair shave after Hair transplant? (photos)

Is it okay to use a shaver at the transplanted area after 2 months, because at the beginning its look ugly with the thin hairs in the front, so i will shave them until there are more hairs? Like a shaver on the picture.

It is best to ask your surgeon about post operative care as each doctor has their unique regimen.

Shaving 2 months after a hair transplant

This should be fine provided that all of the crusts are gone for at least 2-3 weeks, then shaving is ok

Hair Shaving

Best to use a new clipper to clip down your hair, and ensure its clean. A razor can produce ingrown hairs and lead to folliculitis as your growth should begin in the next 4-8 weeks.

In theory it is ok to shave this far our.  However, the best thing to do is always verify with your doctor.

Close shave?

Shaving is not a problem!  Definitely consider using clippers, though.  Those razors, while giving a very clean shave, will cause a little irritation - which is something to avoid when you are regrowing hair.
