Post-Procedure Head Wrapping Guide

Schedule Consulation

Welcome to the post-procedure care guide, ensuring your comfort and healing process after the treatment. We understand that after your procedure, having your head wrapped is a crucial step for optimal recovery. Let’s walk through the process step by step.

Step 1: Antibiotic Ointment Application

Upon completing your procedure, it’s time to apply an antibiotic ointment generously. Carefully rub it into all the areas where grafts were extracted. These areas, often referred to as “holes,” are safe to touch. Ensure you cover the sides, the back of your head, and the other side thoroughly.

Step 2: Non-Absorbent Surgical Dressing

Next, take a non-absorbent surgical dressing and cut it into small strips. Apply these strips to the same area where you applied the antibiotic ointment. This creates a protective layer for the healing process.

Step 3: Gauze Application

Place a bit of gauze on top of the non-absorbent surgical dressing. This additional layer enhances the protection of the treated areas.

Step 4: Loose Bandage Wrapping

Now, it’s time to wrap your head with a non-absorbent surgical dressing loosely. Be sure to avoid applying any tension. Start from the top, working your way down. Keep the bandage away from the graft areas. Neatly pack it to create a comfortable setup for optimal recovery.

Step 5: Repeat for the First Three Days

This process is essential for the first three days following your procedure. If your procedure is on day one, our professional staff will take care of the initial wrapping for you. When you return for follow-up treatments, we will ensure your head is properly wrapped again. You may need to repeat this at home once or twice, following our guidelines.

Ensuring the right care during these initial days is crucial for a smooth recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our dedicated team. We are here to support you on your journey to optimal health and well-being.
