POST-OPERATIVE INSTRUCTIONS FOR GRAFTCYTE

Post-Operative Instructions For Graftcyte

Day of Surgery: The pre-medicated pads should be applied to the grafted area on the evening of surgery at home for 45 minutes if they were not applied at the office prior to your leaving. They should then be applied to the grafted area twice daily for 45 minutes duration for the 3 days. Spray the grafted area with the hydrating mist once every hour throughout the day while awake. A thin coating of Bacitracin should be applied once a day (usually after showering). Bacitracin gel should be applied across the sutured area only – not to be applied to the grafted area.
Shampooing: On the day following your procedure, you will begin washing your hair using your Graftcyte shampoo. Do not touch or allow the shower stream to hit the grafts for five days. To wash grafted area pour a small amount of shampoo into a clean cup and then fill the cup with water creating a soapy solution. Pour the solution over the grafted area. Then fill the cup with plain water and pour over the grafted area until all of the soap is washed out. You can wash ungrafted and sutured areas in a normal fashion. On the sixth day following your procedure begin washing your hair in a normal fashion by gently massaging all areas and rinsing underneath the showerhead. On this day you may begin to apply conditioner to the grafted area 15 minutes before you shampoo. This will help the crusts and scabs to soften and fall off.
Shampooing: Shampoo the hair once every morning using the cup method described above. After showering, apply the Graftcyte pads to the grafted area (the pads should remain on the area for 45 minutes to 1 hour). The 2nd Graftcyte treatment pad application should be applied in the evening. Continue spraying the grafted area with the hydrating mist every hour throughout the day while awake. Bacitracin is to be applied to the sutured area once daily. (apply only a thin coating).
Days 2 – 5 Shampoo hair once in the morning, but discontinue the cup method and begin to shampoo in your normal fashion. Spray the hydrating mist on the grafted area throughout the day while awake. Bacitracin is to be applied to the sutured area once daily. (apply only a thin coating). Note: On day 6 you may begin using conditioner as described above.
Days 6 – 8 Shampoo hair once in the morning, but discontinue the cup method and begin shampooing in normal fashion. Bacitracin is to be applied to the suture area only in a thin coat once daily. On day 6 you can begin using conditioner as described above.
Days 9 – 10 Continue to use the same instructions as days 6 – 8, but DISCONTINUE the use of the Bacitracin gel to the suture area. Be sure to apply the hydrating mist every hour throughout the day while awake until the bottle is finished.
