I've been monitoring this forum for over a year and have surgery scheduled with Dr. Cole at the end of this year. The only thing I'm concerned about is going back to work after the procedure. I don't mind telling my friends and family but I don't think I want to tell the entire office. Fortunately I am doing the procedure right before the Christmas holidays and will have about 17 days b/w the surgery and my first day back to work.
I typically wear my hair short, but if I go back to work with a true buzz cut, people will notice. I guess my main question is, after 17 days, will people be able to see visible signs of surgery on my head??? The shaved head I can talk around, but will people see stubble coming out of places they have never seen hair before? Or will people see healing holes???
And secondly...as the weeks and months go on, am I going to have to keep shaving my head so that the "new" hair doesn't contrast too greatly with my "real" hair?
FYI...my hair loss is probably b/w a 2 and a 3. So most of the work will be on the hairline and my temples.
Does anyone have anything to share regarding going back to the real world and talking around the new look?
