5 Steps to Increased Confidence
Preparing for Surgery
The Donor Area
The Recipient Area
Shedding of Grafts
Removing the Staples or Sutures
Pimples or cysts (the latter occasionally caused by ingrown hairs) may occur on the recipient area. This is normal and should not cause any discomfort. To the touch, a pimple may be a bit sore (as with a pimple anywhere else on your body). If pimples do appear, they typically do so a month after surgery. Many patients have reported pimples appearing for months after surgery. It is thought that pimples occur due to fragments of skin or hair that may have been caught beneath the skin's surface.
IMPORTANT HAIR TRANSPLANT TIP
To assist with reducing the size of the pimples, ask your surgeon to recommend an anti-bacterial ointment.
