I had a hair transplant 7 months ago. Skin discoloration at recipient area? (Photo)

Recommended Posts

I had a hair transplant 7 months ago. In the pictures, I shaved my hair to see the skin under my transplanted hair.

Why does my skin at the recipient area still not look normal?

How long does it take for the skin to go back to normal?

or will it ever be normal before a hair transplant?

Thank you

I don’t really notice anything strange. Looks like the typical color when you shave dark hair. Was there smp performed as well?

Thank you for your reply
no, there is not. just one hair transplant.

the skin between the grafts is also dark. Isn't it supposed to be the same color as normal skin?

I mean I can't really tell to be perfectly honest. I suggest growing your hair out and reposting a picture. Right now all it looks like is shaved hair.

I also do not notice anything to be concerned about...possibly pics do not show as much as what you are seeing in the mirror...having said that, don't worry because in most cases it just takes time for the scalp and recipient area to recover both in terms of inflammation and color.

While I don't see anything to be concerned about, I do believe I see what you're seeing and understand the initial concern. I say that to emphasize how crafty our brains can be when it comes to convincing that there's an issue or something to conerned about. I know for myself, once my eye brings attention to something, it's all I can see - and sometimes it's important for me to trust outside perspective in those moments.
