Pitting solution?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !   

I had a fue transplant 3300 graft to the front.   And from my research seem that I have a some pitting where the hair are growing.  It is now 3.5 months.   Has anyone had the same issue?  Did it minimize a bit with time as the skin renews and goes through cycles?   I didn't even think this was a thing to worry about in the 21st century.   They seem to be very hard to capture in a photo and can only be well seen in certain angle with bright light.

It definitely does improve with time but most importantly the surrounding hair growth eventually hides it. 

Thank you for your reply. Are you speaking from experience ?  You had the same issue ?  How long did it take for you to resolve?

There is no solution to surgical errors. Hopefully you get great growth in the next 6 months that will help camouflage the pitting you have. It doesn’t look too bad at all based on the pics you posted. Your only option is to remove the worst ones and implant more to hide the rest.

 There’s this misconception with hair restoration surgery that the most important steps are the extractions and/or the incisions and that graft placement is no big deal and techs can easily handle it. That’s not true at all. If the technicians don’t place the grafts at the proper depth you end up with issues like this.

Yes from personal experience ! But again like I stressed before it's the resultant density which significantly contributes in making it a non issue.

I had pitting from my first procedure.  It did lessen with time, though some of the pitted grafts in my hairline had to be punched out since there was no way to camouflage them.

Goodvibes who did the hair transplant? At only 3.5 months you have a lot of time and a lot of healing ahead of you. I have a lot of scars along my hairline, temples and in the donor area and they do improve over time. The hair that has been implanted will also help negate any concerns you have as it continues to grow in the future. I'm positive that the longer you wait the better the result will turn out and you won't be worrying about it! All the best!
