This below question was asked by a member of our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums and answered by Janna, the lead medical technician for Coalition hair restoration surgeons Dr. Ron Shapiro and Dr. Paul Shapiro.
I’ve never used an antibiotic cream on the donor scar straight after follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) but I think I’m gonna try it this time so I’m interested in everyone’s experience with it. Was it effective? How long did you use it for? Thanks.
We have all our strip hair transplant patients apply the antibiotic cream Bacitracin right after their daily shampoo for the first 5 days. We’ve been doing this technique for years as we feel it’s been beneficial in producing better scars.
