How Hard is it to Hide Hair Restoration?
I can only get one week off from work to get my hair restoration procedure. Should I get more time off so that my head is not still red when I go back to work? Some people say they needed a full month before being comfortable in public.
If an FUE (follicular unit extraction-which is the best) technique is used then the sides and possibly back of your head will be shaved. It will take 2-4 weeks for that to grow in so that it isn't noticeable. The areas where the transplants are placed are healed in 2-3 days. The real issue for work is when will you be comfortable with the short hair in the donor sites.
