How are my grafts looking? Four-days post-op

Recommended Posts

I am four-days post-op from 2500 grafts in my crown and 650 grafts along my hairline via FUT. Today was my first shower where I lightly rubbed the grafts to start working on getting the crusts/scabs off per my doctor's instructions. Just curious how it looks so far. I didn't really notice anything come off in the shower, but I did notice one or two spots that looked bright red afterwards, you can see one of the spots in three of the four photos that I posted. How does it look overall? Anything to be concerned about? Thanks!

Four days is too early to start rubbing the grafts.  At this stage you should only be spraying or using a cup to rinse the grafts with luke warm water, and non medicated shampoo suds.  Check with the doc.

Everying looks normal to me but 0-7 days is the critical period for graft anchoring.

All looks good.  I've pulled out a graft 6 days post-op before, so be careful.  I would just pour a cup of warm, sudsy water on your head for now.

Did you let the shower head hit your scalp? You shouldn’t be wetting your head in the shower at 4 days. You should be using a small bowl of water and baby shampoo to wash the top.

I haven't used the shower head yet. Even when I used my fingers, I was still pouring water with a cup and using baby shampoo. I think I'll play it safe and wait until day 7 unless I hear back from my doctor before then.
