I underwent a hair transplant on past April by DHI technique and during my return journey to my country, my forehead collided with a hard metal surface with a strong shock, but the shock did not touch the implanted hair and there was no bleeding on my scalp but the shock only caused a small tumour above my right eye. I underwent the procedure 2 months and one week ago and there exist few dots on my head for hairs about to appear especially on the frontline. I am afraid if the shock might have caused a damage as long as the remarkable growth of hair has not begun yet.
Was this shock harmful?
I reached 6 months post-op a few days ago. Last week I was in the sun for about 3 1/2 hours without a hat or any sun protection. I received a pretty bad burn and subsequently had skin peeling. The peeling was in my thin crown area though, not in the mid-frontal area where my grafts were placed. I messaged my dr and he said there is no way to tell right now whether i did damage to the grafts, i just have to wait and see.
Does anyone have thoughts on whether a 6 month post-op HT could still have his transplant messed up by a sunburn? Also what is meant by "graft damage" from a sunburn? I thought the follicle was underneath the layer of skin affected by a sunburn...
So I have an fue artas procedure 8 days ago.. Today all the scabs where the hair was placed have come off and I'm left with about 99% of the hairs that be placed there, and they are growing nicley. Is that normal? I've always understood that it took many months to see hairs, and yet I already have them and are doing great..
My second question is I have this soft of nerve pain on my right temple where hair was put. If I touch it it'll feel like a string under my scalp is being pulled and it'll tighten up, I think theres a vein that I can feel tighen also. There's a slight pain there hours later. Is this normal? I'm hoping its not permanent nerve damage :confused:
I had a 3000 graft FUT procedure yesterday. I went in today for a next day check up and was told everything looks good. I am very excited about the future outcome, but am still on edge having been told by the clinic and elsewhere that the first 72 hours are critical (grafts need to be closely protected etc).
I have been very careful not to touch the recipient area and slept at a 45 deg angle last night. I am about 27 hours post-op right now and am starting to experience some forehead swelling, as was to be expected. No worries on that front for me.
I am about to wash my head for the first time by myself, so I am certainly nervous about doing that. I wish I didn't have to wash my hair lol. I just don't want to mess anything up. However, it must be done apparently...
My question, right now, is this; can hair grafts be dislodged or damaged by any other means than contact (i.e. itching, rubbing) ? For example, I have laughed a few times and made a few other facial expressions post-op and felt a twinge in different spots on my scalp area, possibly in the recipient area. Could making a certain facial expression, or laughing, cause damage to brand new grafts?
im around 5 months after my hair transplant to restore my hairline everything was goin fine till i had to get my first haircut since, so i went to the barber i told him i wanted a specific hairstyle but i guess he didnt understand (since the music was pretty loud) and gave me a buzz haircut that means no guard on the clipper so while he was line up my hairline i didnt feel no pain but when he finished cutting my hair i noticed that the area where i had my transplant was red idk if its because the skin is more delicate in that area and it got irritated or he went in too deep with his clipper and scratch off some hair :confused::confused::confused::confused:
