Early Shedding of Grafted Hairs

Recommended Posts

I've had two transplants and in both instances, the majority of the hairs shed within a week. I was advised today by my surgeon that he's never seen anything like it, though he said the site appeared to be healing well. I experienced no bloody grafts or ones containing tissue at the ends.


It didn't at first, but after researching and talking to my surgeon today, I'm a bit worried. Looking forward to your inputs. Thanks.

Who was your surgeon? Some docs here have patients w/ scabs as long as a month, others want them gone around day 7. Many patients have hairs shed along w/ scabs. As for me, I'm right at 3 wks and haven't notice really any shedding. It seems most here have all their transplanted hairs shed by wk 4.
