Wigs after hair transplants

Using a hair system after a hair transplant runs risks of irritation, infection and if you use glue, it will pull out the grafts

Hair transplant. Is it good or bad to wear a wig?

The wig should be worn sparingly for the 1st 3 weeks after surgery. (In my opinion NO wig wearing the 1st few days post op)  After 3 weeks the wig should be worn when necessary and removed during sleep, especially if you are careful of placing and removing the wig. Please realize however the wigs that button down and put stress on the recipient area could over time cause growth issues. Just use common sense with your wig.
