After a hair transplant, patients soon want to cover their heads to conceal the traces of the surgery including redness, scabs and swelling.
Yes, you can cover your head. You’re usually provided with a surgical cap Post-Op and it’s advisable to only use that for the initial 3 days. After that, it is recommended to wear a “Polo Cap” that loosely fits your head. It’s important that there is no pressure imposed on the newly transplanted hair grafts.
That’s because the grafts are not yet firmly anchored in the canals during the first 7 to 10 days. And any contact or compression could dislodge the grafts.
