I slept surprisingly well, despite the recommended elevated position. No discomfort at all. I knew that it would be important to be extra careful at this point in fixing my hair. This is a big difference between the traditional procedure and the long hair one. There is more of a chance of dislodging grafts with the long hair shafts. Because of this I did very little to improve my appearance that morning. Better to look like I just rolled out of bed than to ruin a lifetime result. I looked in the mirror one last time before I left and decided that my hair still looked better than it did the day before.
I went to work and proceeded with my day as usual. It really was not very obvious that I had a hair transplant the day before. I had my first post op laser treatment over the lunch hour, which aids in the healing process.
That evening I washed my hair for the first time. It is a simple but special process and again, I had to be more careful than before. Used cool setting on hair dryer, took medicine as directed and used GraftCyte. My hairline still looks great. Knowing how this hair transplant thing works, I wondered how long I would get to enjoy my immediate result.
