3onths post FUE

At 3 month, everything is healed and there is nothing to worry about. Comb your hair as you would have always done

Healing after FUE hair transplant

The healing process should be over after a few weeks. In three months you can return to your normal routine including combing your hair.

You should not have scabs 3 months after surgery. If you are not sure how to wash your hair please contact your doctor.

Combing recipient area

Yes of course!  Several scubs still connected with your recipient area means you dont wash your hair properly after surgery .You have to exert by mechanical force on scalp to clean all of them. Washing head with forcefully massage does not harm the grafts .
