Can I Wear a Large Plaster over my Eyebrow the Day Following an Eyebrow Transplant?

Can I wear a large plaster over my eyebrow the day following an eyebrow transplant provided it does not rub on the eyebrow. If not is there any other way to disguise the redness?

Always check with your surgeon if you want to do something out of the ordinary after surgery.

Touching Eyebrows After Eyebrow Transplant

Nothing should touch the eyebrow the day following transplant. The grafts are not securely rooted until 7 days post-surgery, so you should avoid any unnecessary contact until then. As the other doctors suggested, try a large pair of sunglasses that rest away from your face.

Eyebrow Disguise after Transplant

I do not put anything over the eyebrow after a hair transplant.  If you are concerned about disguising the redness or crusts, I would suggest wearing a large pair of sunglasses that do not touch the eyebrow area.

Post eyebrow transplant disguise

You should avoid anything touching the transplants for about 5 days. The best diguise would be some sunglasses that are large enough to hide the eyebrows. It will be about 2 weeks for all the crusts to have fallen off.
