Hi, I’m a 32 year-old man, Norwood Type II, considering getting a hair transplant of about 1000 grafts. Would it be fine to go swimming about ten days after the procedure and, if so, would the donor scar and grafts be much more visible when my hair is wet? Also, I’ve been advised that staples are better for the long-term healing of the donor site, but they’re also more conspicuous during the initial post-op period. Would it be fine to get sutures instead? Thanks for your help.
