When is safe to buzz down after op?

Hi folks,


I'm 3 days post op from my 2 day session with Dr Bisanga and his team and I'll do a full write up and progress thread once I get the pics through from the clinic but I have a question...


Being a rock guy I had very long hair going in to the clinic, it was nearly down to my belly button if I stretched it out (and a few good Samson and Jesus jokes were cracked by the Doc which made me laugh!). Anyway I was originally all prepared to have the lot buzzed off but the Doc (I always called him "Doc") said it wasn't necessary and only shaved the back and a bit at the front which is all cool and apparently it's what they do with female patients but to be honest it's ended up being more hassle than it's worth. Even my best attempts at tying it up always result in a few clumps falling down and when applying the cream to the donor area it all gets a bit messy.


Anyway I'm just going to bite the bullet and buzz the lot but I'm wondering when would be a safe time to do this as at the moment I'm letting absolutely nothing near my precious grafts except what the clinic said is safe because I'm very aware of this first week and letting the grafts anchor.


I'm thinking two to three weeks will be ok but just to check with more experienced people.


Thanks all!

You should be fine at 2 weeks. Just be gentle. I would scissor cut it first.

looking forward to the write-up and pics!

I agree with Spanker, most docs recommend being very careful about using clippers as it may pull on grafts, wait a few weeks and go manual LOL

go dense or go home
