I had a follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) 10 days ago and the donor cut is really long. It extends beyond ear to ear, almost into temple areas. What can I do or shouldn’t do to take care of it so that the scar is as thin as possible?
I always instruct the patient to not hyper-flex the neck for the first few months following the hair transplant. This means do not try to touch your chin to your chest. Patients have a tendency to want to do this after a short period of time to test out the area and see if it still hurts. This will only contract your trapezius (traps) muscles in your neck and potentially widen the scar.
Even after the sutures are removed there is still internal healing that take s several months.
