At 6 days, it is almost certainly an infection. There are some crusts that are partially removed, and they could create a point for the introduction of bacteria. This is why I am obsessed with washing the hair immediately after the surgery. I want my patients to continue doing so every day. My goal is to keep the crusts off. […]

Some people have skin that easily turns pink when it is traumatized. I can detect these patients in advance by having them scratch their forehead with their fingernails. If the scratch mark turns pink within 5 miniutes, it means that the skin is histamine positive and these patients will often retain some pink coloration for […]
This man is an actor who went for an audition the day after FUE. He combed his hair forward to cover the frontal FUE grafts. The back of his head was already healing and his hair style was created to bland it with the short hair in the back of his head. He landed the […]
Considering that you had 3,000 grafts, two grafts will not make any difference. Don’t worry, wash it up properly and gently and then go on with your life. You clearly used a selfie to show the bleeding area, good job!
This patient had 2,900 grafts a few years ago and stopped in to show me what he looked like. The before and after are remarkable. His hair is brown, straight and of medium thickness. He has seen a remarkable change in his self-confidence and the man in the mirror looks good.
The first photo set is a woman who had her hairline lowered the day before these pictures was taken. Please note that the washing was so complete and the recipient sites so samll, that the recipient sites could barely be seen so I labeled the frontal view where a faint outline of the recipient sites show […]
This is an Asian patient who wanted to enhance her eyebrows. She was worried about how it may look after the surgery, especially going back to work! She didn’t see many before after photos on-line of how it looked IMMEDIATELY AFTER SURGERY so she gave us permission to use her photos. Hopefully it can help […]
Many patients ask how their hair will look like after surgery. In general you can get redness and scabs for about one to two weeks depending on how well you wash your hair. This particular patient healed well and there is no significant redness of scabbing after 10 days! More interesting is the fact he […]
I’m not sure what you may be experiencing. If you have hair in a spot you never had hair prior to surgery, maybe you’re feeling your small nerves recovering from the surgery. Ask your doctor to examine you and give you a better assessment.
Donor scars are considered stable after about 6 months following strip surgery. Like all rules, there are exceptions, but this is a general observation made from my experience.
I cannot say what is going on without examining you in person. How would you know if the hairs you are losing are the transplanted hairs or native hairs? Or maybe transplanted hairs (like regular non-balding hairs) are going through their natural hair cycle of shedding before regrowing. I really cannot say. At 8 months, […]
I would not expect the hair to grow out until 5-7 months have elapsed. Following a hair transplant, your newly transplanted grafts will go through a dormant phase. All you can do at this point is have patience. Some people could see the start of growth after a few months, some take a little longer. […]
I do not know why your scabs would be there at a month after surgery. Just washing your hair with soap and water should’ve taken them off. I would like to know if the grafts were the large plugs, which used to produce scabs lasting 2-3 months with poor hygiene. We did a graft anchoring […]
I would usually say no, but I have seen some strange results and methods of hair transplants over the years. Not all FUE (follicular unit extraction) is the same and not all hair transplants are the same. If you are able to pull out a graft one month after surgery, then it was never going […]
I certainly am not in a position to tell you what is going on, but the doctor who did your surgery should be the first place to go to find this out. I wish I could offer more, but I didn’t perform your surgery and I don’t know what was done in the operating room […]
