The patient will be discharged the same day. Many surgeons prefer not to bandage the area but the ones who do should be extremely careful to avoid shearing. The removal of the bandage also has to be very meticulous as it can damage the hair grafts. After the surgery the patient will have many tiny incisions and short hair stubbles showing from the new placed grafts. But this will heal quickly and the soreness will clear up within a week.
