When is it safe to trim the recipient area after hair transplant

How many months after a hair transplant is it safe to cut the recipient area at the barber? Or is it recommended to just wait and grow it out until 12 months?

I tell patients that once all of the scabs have fallen off in the recipient area and the scalp has returned to its normal color (redness gone away) it is safe to get a haircut. Generally this occurs in 7-10 days. I do tell them not to use a razor or trimmer with no guard for a few months.
