Seeking advice for hair transplant

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am at the 10 month mark and I’m pretty worried, I have these small bumps on the recipient area that’s are very visible when in the light and don’t seem to be going away, I have gotten in contact with my clinic (not yet ready to disclose) and they have told me that this is normal and that the skin can sometimes look like this and with time it will get smooth. I’m having a hard time believing this as I am at the 10 month mark which is pretty far down the line… they also said that I should use a dandruff shampoo as it would help, this has not helped and when I reach out I’m told to wait and keep using the shampoo. I’m a very worried. Any advice/experience would be appreciated. Thank you.

The bad news is that you have some cobblestoning going on from errant implantation.  The good news is that it does eventually settle down, but over the course of a couple years.  You could also disguise it with another transplant in the area, obviously one done with correct implantation techniques.

It should slowly smooth out somewhat over a few years.
