Haircut after transplant

It should be fine for you to cut the hair in the donor area at anytime now,particularly if you had an FUE.For the recipient area you should wait another week or 2.

When I can cut hair on the donor area ?

You can cut -shave your donor area by now. But for shaving the recipient area I advice my patients to complete 6 months . All the best
