I have been asked lately to show more pictures after the surgery so that prospective patients can understand what they may look like. Each patient is different because of hair and skin color. The lower the contrast, the less detectable it is, the grater the contrast the more detectable the ‘beard look’ of new hair is. This patient is 9 days after his surgery. His skin color is olive but his hair is brown so what we are seeing is his brown hair in the recipient area against his olive skin color and an FUE donor area that is one day post-op. Note that there is no crusting present in the recipient area and the FUE wounds are almost undetectable at one day.
