How to remove your bandage
After the hair transplant, the wounds are larger in the donor area than they are in the transplantation area where only small incisions have been made. Therefore, we lubricate the donor area with vaseline to create an extra layer of protection against dirt. We then put on a bandage over the vaseline. Here you can read about and watch a video on how to remove your bandage.
1. When should the bandage be removed?
The day after the procedure. The bandage should not stay on longer than 24 hours after the day of the hair transplant.
2. How is the bandage removed?
Carefully pull off the bandage with clean hands. After removing the bandage, you can wipe the skin clean with paper or a clean towel. It is also okay to carefully wash or shower the area.
Questions and answers about the bandage
You can wash the donor area directly after you have taken off the bandage. Avoid water touching the transplanted area (where your hair follicles have been moved to) up to 2 days after your hair transplant.
No, you do not need to be worried. It is normal to bleed a little the first few days. Take a clean paper towel and dab it away.
