Hey Guys,

 

Planning on having a HT done relatively soon. Just curious how did you guys manage to deal with having to go back to work. 

I'm trying to request 4-6 weeks off in order to allow proper time to heal. I work in an office environment and i'm pretty close with most of my colleagues, I just don't want it to be overtly obvious when I come back that i've had work done.

Did any of you guys have any instances where people at work had their suspicions or possibly questioned how your hair grew so much all of a sudden?

@Guano meanwhile the hair will not grow back any time soon, it will take 3/4 months to see them reappear, then when the crusts fall off your head, you can go back to work and it will seem like you have shaved your scalp, that is between 7 and 15 days  after the transplant.

I assume that you are having FUE?  If so, the scabbing and crusts will be long gone by the time you return to work...;)

With most of the transplanted hairs falling into their resting phase, there is an inevitable period of 3-4 months where there is very little to see in terms of new hair growth. In fact, during the first few weeks of recovery after a hair transplant, the grafted hairs tend to shed and therefore the early results can look rather disappointing and thin.

Rarely, some of the original native hairs in the transplanted area can also be pushed into the resting phase of their growth cycle (telogen), resulting in a temporary thinning. This is known as shock loss or shedding. Provided these hairs have more growth cycles in store, they recover and regrow, usually during the first 3-9 months after a hair transplant.

Because the regrowth period takes 12-15 months to full mature, most won't notice the subtle changes unless you have a real large session and after 12 months you obviously will look completely different.

But I have found that when an individual has outstanding work done, people will notice in a very positive context...they won't be critical but will be curious in a complimentary way.
