At 3 weeks how do I look?
Now you look fine. An FUE is treated just
like a regular hair transplant with regard to the recipient area, but the donor
area has open wounds which require daily washing with soap and water. Within 3
days of surgery, you can resume full activities, heavy exercises if you wish.
The recipient area requires daily washes as well to keep the recipient area
free of crusts. I generally recommend the use of a sponge and supply my patient
with a surgical sponge to fill with soapy water and press on the recipient area
daily. By repeating this daily, all crusts can be washed off without any fear
of losing grafts. IF any crust are present, use a Q tip and dip it into soapy
water, and roll it on the crusts and that will lift them off without dislodging
them, but never rub them, just roll the Q tip on the recipient crust. I like to
see no evidence of any crusting in the recipient area and the crusts from the
donor area gone in 7-10 days with daily washing.
Thank you for your question, fb1990. Your scabs indicate that your healing process could be going more smoothly, however, the grafted hairs look like they have taken grasp and will shed soon to begin the regrowth process. Please schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon to evaluate your progress.
The photos look like you had a hair transplant surgery. There are lot of scabs. Please follow up with your doctor for a rechec

It seems pretty normal post operative evolution. Keep in touch with your surgeon as the after procedure care varies from doctor to doctor, but by these photos it seems that's nothing to worry about.
