After my hair transplant how will I need to take care of the donor area?

Immediately following hair transplantation surgery instructions are given to the patient regarding hair washing and cleansing the donor area where the sutures and/or staples have been placed.

Sometimes physicians who perform hair transplantation surgery will recommend to the patient using products such as vitamin E oil and/or ScarDerma, which is another topical medication used to help reduce the appearance of scars. These products do work on some patients and do not have a significant effect on others.

In most cases, these products used to help prevent the appearance of scars are not harmful and are certainly worth trying to limit the appearance of the scar.
