I'm 5 days post-op from FUT ~3000 grafts with no pain or discomfort in the recipient site, and have cared for my recipient/donor areas as directed. Is it normal to have dried/scabbed blood like I do and yellowish crusts around the hairs?
I had a fue ht 25 days back from Mumbai by dr. Ritesh safariya. It all went good. I had high density of abt 70 hairs at the front hair line area for abt 1 cm. and some mid densilty at the center area. Total of 3200 grafts. On my two sides of front hairline the density was even more.
Now here is what happened, after 7 to 8 days post op i tried to remove the scabs. All most of ithe mid scalp scabs came out easily but the front part was still tight so the doctor asked me to leave it for three more days to heal. However, i developed a very bad habbit of scratching and picking the scabs slowly( which i should not have done). So accidently in my frontal sides i pulled the scabs and it came out with lots of hairs attached to it. Now i am concerned abt that area since it has no hairs in that part. See the pic from the begining to present condidion. Please note: my hairs are shedding in the frontal part mostly where the density was more.The last picture shows my current situation(today).
Will hair grow in this empty part? Very worried :confused:
This is my first post but I have been lurking for quite some time. In fact, I probably came across the website more than 5 years ago when I was doing my initial research to get hair transplant.
I really appreciate what you guys have done here and I appreciate that there are guys out there who care, going through, and have gone through the same experiences I have...so Thank you!
Two days ago, I had my hair transplant surgery with Dr. Parsa Mohebi in his Encino clinic along with his professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff and technicians.
Upon initial consultation, I knew that I was going to have Dr. Mohebi do my procedure. He's not only a very personable as a person and took the time to really get to know me and my background but he's also very knowledgeable and on top of the latest in hair transplant procedure. He explained to me that this is a life changing procedure that should not be taken lightly and he complimented me for doing my research prior to meeting him. He went over every aspect of the procedure, from two weeks prior to the operation to what to expect on a day to day basis up to the time the donor staples are removed.
Yesterday I visited him in his Beverly Hills office to have my hair washed by one of his technician and do a check up. He said everything looks good and normal as normal as it could be the first full day after hair transplant.
I told him I wanted to share my story with the website that taught me alot and share my experience as I have learned from other experiences in this very informative, friendly, and helpful website.
Thank you http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com for the service you've done to the follically-challenged community...and Thank you to Dr. Mohebi and team for a making my HT experience as pleasant and soothing as it could possibly be...and I AM going back for that delicious vanilla ice cream brownie sundae!
