I am a 30 year old female and I had FUE last December, 600 grafts. Almost 7 months later, it seems like the grafts are not falling off. A couple of months ago, I got an infection due to one of the grafts not falling off and new hair already growing in the same place. My doctor had to use a needle and pull out the graft and i ended up with a bald patch. I have another bump on my scalp now due to the graft not falling off but it is not infected yet. My doctor is pushing me go for her laser treatment saying all my problems will clear up if I do.
Is it necessary to go for treatments like laser after an FUE?
Most people will see the newly transplanted hair fall out and go through a dormant phase before regrowing months later, but some will see those grafts just start growing without going dormant. I am confused by what you’re describing about pulling grafts out months after surgery. After 7 months you should see some hair growth from the grafts you had transplanted. Lasers are not necessary to get the hair to grow.
Lasers treatments do not work for hair growth, for FUE scars, or ingrown hairs. As for bumps following a hair transplant, I’ve discussed that here.
