Pain in the donor area

Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

I am close to 3 weeks post hair transplant. The donor area feels very sensitive, and is slightly painful to touch.

Is this normal ? How long does it take usually for the donor area to heal completely ?

There are an endless amount of nerves and blood vessels that get severed in the procedure however they do heal with time and the discomfort varies between individuals…I used extra strength Tylenol 500 for my post-op discomfort.
