spots after surgery



Hi guys,

I know its normal to get spots or pimples after surgery and your probably not suppose to pop them but i couldnt resist and i popped like 3 of them...

soo my question is: are your hair grafts suppose to pop up and out if you pop your pimple?

i ask because out of the 3 i pimples i popped one was a new hair trying to make its way up and it appeard and its okay now but the other 2 when i popped it i saw the graft slide out same way they were put in basically; it had the white skin around it and everything it looked exactly like a graft thats about to go in but little softer, it was a 3 hair graft. this didnt hurt or sting or anything at all. i'm at 3 months post opp.

question 2. when your hair sheds after surgery what is it suppose to look like. i.e is it just the hair without the skin around it or does it resemble a new graft?

Please get back to me and thanks for your support.

At 3 months, these were likely new hairs growing through the scalp via newly implanted follicles. Because you're 90 days out, you couldn't (really) cause any damage to the grafts, and it seems pretty normal at this point in time. However, if you're still concerned, you could always check back with your operating clinic and make sure you're following all post-op instructions and suggestions properly.


Good luck!
