I’m undergoing hair transplant surgery in a few days, and I’m wondering what I should put on the grafts after the procedure? What types of treatments are available? What type of solution do physicians recommend putting on the new grafts after surgery?
There are really two types of therapies used for treating the grafts post-operatively: saline-based sprays and ointment-based creams. Both have their advantages and disadvantages: the saline-based post-operative sprays ( like H2Ocean or Graftcyte) tend to promote scab formation while also decreasing erythema (redness) and inflammation. These may be good for patients (or physicians) who feel comfortable with early scabbing and want to decrease redness in the immediate healing period. The ointment- based post-operative solutions tend to minimize scab formation and allow healing in a moist environment. There is opposing opinions as to which method is better. I have tried both methods and seen good results with both.
