Hello,

I've already had a procedure, but had the privilege of having an LOA from work to finish school.

Now, im looking to have a procedure in mid-december to fill in behind the hairline (Zone 2), and keep me going until the next little bit.

The question I have for members is, for those who work in professional work or office environments, how did you conceal your transplant until it no longer was noticeable?

Hey Wally,

I only had a week off of work and as we all know that isn't enough time for all the scabs to fall off.  I went back to work the following week with all the scabs.  I know it sounds weird but even the scabs looked good....lol.  I got compliments on how good it looked already.  Most people didn't ask any questions or stare, only a few.  I'm in Accounting in a pharmaceutical company so it is a professional setting and I didn't have any problems.  Whenever someone asked I was comfortable to say I had a HT. 

Hope that helps.

Gabriel

I took 3 weeks of vacation, and by the time I went back all of the scabs were gone, just a lot of redness at that point. I just told everyone that I had gotten way too much sun and didn't think about putting sunscreen on top of my head. Everyone bought it and gave me a hard time about needing to put sunscreen on top of my head as well..

Being an office/proffessional environment I'm assuming you couldn't wear a bandanna or baseball cap.  I don't see any other alternatives.  Atleast its zone two which will be less noticeable than the hairline.

lol - wicked story!!

As for working in an office, not alot I can recommend but as the above person said, at least it is zone 2. I am also going for my 2nd procedure in zone 2 & 3 in October.

I'm hoping to get a procedure done in the near future and going back to work is one of my biggest worries. I work in a professional office environment as well but I work with clients throughout the day so it's going to be a little challenging to avoid any awkward moments. I will be able to get at least three weeks off, maybe more but that should give some time for the grafts to heal. I'm thinking of wearing a hat that looks a little professional at least. Does anybody know if that would be ok or would it potentially damage or hinder the healing and growth process? Keep in mind, there would be absolutely no contact on my head for the initial three to four weeks after the surgery.

I had already 4 procedures and I always wore a baseball cap for 3 month.
Some days, where I had to visit customers on site, it was not possible to wear with a cap.
So I go without. Only one guy, in all the years asked me what happens with my head. I said the truth. In all other cases, people only take a quick look and had no comment.

I too was lucky enough in that my job did not mind if I wore a ball cap. I was able to keep my procedure hidden from everyone.

As well, below I have posted photos of how I looked 14 days out after my procedure. I pretty much could pull off the buzzed look. I do stress to everyone having a procedure that everybody heals differently. I was a quick healer and looked like I had never had a procedure just 14 days out from surgery.

For 14 days out, that is totally undetectable that you had a HT.

I had 3 FUE procedures with ALvi Armani and I went to work the 2nd day after. I had some swelling on my first one because the transplant was done on zone 1&2 but when I did the crown I had no swelling at all.
The swelling usually lasts 4-5 days but each day gets better.

Like Burberry said, when you have a transplant done in zones 1 and 2 you will likely experience a great amount of swelling. I, myself had 4000 FUE's done in zones 1 and 2 and it definitely took a little longer for me to get back to work and physical activities. Moreover, when you have procedures done in zones 1 and 2 it will be quite a bit noticeable. I will be having a little bit of work done in the crown area soon and am looking forward to seeing the difference in terms of recovering from frontal and rear procedures. By the way pats your results looked great for being only 14 days out.

I got 4,500 grafts done and i went back to work 3 days after my procedures.  I wore a blue medical cap in the office and when people asked me i said i got something done on my hair.  I had to lie a little bit initially because i was worried what everyone would say but after a week or two i told the truth and no one made a big deal.  I than walked around the office with a red head and at 8 weeks the majority of the redness was gone.

I am going to be honest even with the scabs on the hair line you look so much younger.  Also keep in mind once everything grows in people are going to know you got something done so walking around with a red head for a month or two isnt a big deal.  I am a mortgage banker so i see clients every day and 9 out of 10 people just looked up at my head but never said a word.

Is it ok to wear a hat after the procedure? I thought I have read places before that it was not good to do this? Being able to wear a hat after the procedure would help boost my confidence about this procedure!!

you can wear a baseball cap after 2-3 weeks as long as it does not touch any grafts
