I am wanting to go for the FUE procedure in Thailand to have 1500 grafts in my crown and two temples. I only have one week of work and have 5 or 6 days to recover before returning to work. I don’t want anyone to notice so i would like to wear a hat or beanie and for health and safety i must wear a safety hat at work. Will this effect the result of the outcome of the procedure or how long must i wait until i can wear a hat. Thank you.
You should ask this question to the doctor who is going to do the surgery. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to the person that will be performing a permanent cosmetic procedure on your scalp. Have an open dialog!
Generally, after the transplants have passed the 3-14 day period and there is no scabbing, then wearing a hat should not be a problem provided that it does not rub on the recipient area.
