I have had two hair transplants. I was never bald but have thinning hair. After the transplants my head had no feeling on top for about six to seven months. Seems it made me lose as much hair as I got from the transplants. There was a doctor there but he did not do any of the work other then the cut for the hair grafts. What if any tests I can have done before going to a different doctor. I feel it was a waste of money.
Were you on Propecia (finasteride) prior to the surgery? If not and you are young, you should have been taking the drug, as the loss of hair after the transplant is a consequence of young men who are not protected with finasteride. Numbness to some degree is normal, but your sensation should return in a few weeks/months. I have seen some clinics that employ doctors as technicians who just do the ‘cutting’ and take no responsibility for overall patient management. If this is what you had, it may have been a “waste of money” for you (that is, if you did not see any cosmetic benefit from your surgery). There is also the negative value of having hair moved that did not survive (if it did not grow then it must be dead). That is why I stress the importance of a Master Plan when planning your surgery and being able to trust your surgeon. You may want to get another opinion with an examination by a competent and honest doctor. As I have said before, Let the Buyer Beware!
