How to remove your bandage

After the hair transplant, the wounds are larger in the donor area than in the transplant area where only small incisions have been made.

Therefore, we lubricate the donation area with Vaseline to create an extra protection against dirt. Over the vase we put a bandage.

Here you can read about and watch a video on how to remove your bandage.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on what to do when it’s time to take off your bandage after your hair transplant.

Frequently asked questions and answers

Should I be worried if I bleed when I take off my bandage?

No, you don’t need to worry. It is normal for some blood or wound fluid to appear in the first few days.

You can take a paper towel and wipe off the blood.

How long is the healing process after a hair transplant?

The most critical time is the first 2-3 days when the area is at its most sensitive. The first week you should be extra careful.

After 2 weeks it is okay to start practicing, but you should still be a little careful with the sun and be vigilant so that the transplanted hair is not scratched.

After 3 weeks, you can generally do most everyday things, but avoid things like kicking a football, wearing a helmet or shaving with a razor.

We are always on hand to answer questions about aftercare.

Which painkillers can I take after the procedure?

After your hair transplant, you can take 1-2 Alvedon for pain relief in case you feel any pain.

Avoid drugs such as Ipren, Treo or Aspirin for up to 48 hours after your hair transplant. They contain a substance called acetylsalicylic acid, which has a blood-thinning effect and increases the risk of bleeding. If you bleed too much after the procedure, the hair follicles have more difficulty growing back.

If you have transplanted over an area with no blood supply (e.g. a scar), we can give you Aspirin instead to stimulate the blood supply to that area and thus facilitate the hair follicles’ process of growing firmly.
