I recently had an FUE procedure that involved 2,500 grafts, about two months ago. I’m a bit concerned as I went through some personal matters that caused high levels of depression; all within the same week I had the procedure.
No grafts popped and the scalp healed well, however is it possible that due to the depression, that it could affect the outcome? Is it a possibility, that I developed Telogen effluvium and caused some of the grafts to become void?
I’m just concerned as this procedure costed a pretty penny. Thank you for your time and patience, Doctor.
Why are you not asking this question to your surgeon? Have an open line of communication with your doctor, especially in the months following your surgery.
An FUE procedure of 2500 grafts is a very high number of grafts for anyone and I am always cautious when I hear patients having those numbers. In the end, only time will tell how your outcome will be. At least take some comfort in the fact that depression and emotional stress will not impact the growth or outcome.
