Did I Damage Grafts by Combing My Hair One Month after Hair Transplant Surgery?

8/20/2014 3:11:15 AM


I underwent a hair transplant by follicular unit excision (formerly known as follicular unit extraction) (FUE) two months ago. The worry that I have is that I started combing my hair one month after surgery and now, after my second month, I noticed slight bleeding in my crown area where hair was transplanted.

I want to know if there anything to worry about. Have I lost any hair grafts and what is the reason for that bleeding?


There's no problem with combing your hair one month after surgery and no chance that your grafts are bleeding after two months.

More than likely, the bleeding you are seeing is due to a pimple in the recipient area which is common. However, I suggest checking with your physician to rule out anything more serious.
