If you are contemplating hair transplant surgery and have worries about what people will think, you can deal with this in a few ways. Prior to modern technology becoming available, the recovery process was longer, the scars were visible for a longer period and in truth, the surgery was a major event that was difficult to hide unless you had a period to adjust and not just a few days.
With the improvement of the procedures, it is possible for there to be no visible signs of surgery even after a few days post-transplant. This will depend on a number of factors but it is possible that after 5 days the holes where the transplant happens are no longer visible.
Many people, including famous people, are becoming more open about going for a hair transplant surgery and this makes it easier for many people to comprehend that hair transplant surgery is becoming a more acceptable form to contemplate.
If you are open about the surgery it does cause less speculation as to what has happened and this is important for some people, it means less people discussing the options or procedures that you have gone through, without knowing the facts.
If you are thinking about or worrying how to hide, the procedure talk to the doctor that is performing the surgery. They might give you a guide to the period that the scars tend to be visible and maybe book this time off work.
One technique is to draw the attention away from the hair itself before the procedure, wearing a hat of some description, even growing a beard is a great way to take the emphasis off the hair itself and no one will realise that you have had the procedure because they have focused on other aspects of your appearance.
It is important that you feel comfortable with the process, which you are going to go through, and for this reason, it is important to discuss these concerns prior to surgery, so you have more information as to the outcome of the procedure and the recovery time you will need to allow post-surgery.
If you need options as to how you feel about your hair, it is important to discuss all options with your specialist. Some procedures might be more suitable than others; it is important to talk these through with your hair specialist.

Therefore, if you are concerned about the after care, or the visibility of the procedure then you might want to talk about these with the doctor who is to perform the surgery; they are there to guide you through the process and are there for your after care, too.
