How Long After a Hair Transplant do Pimples Last?


7 months after hair transplant surgery, I still get the odd soreness pimple sensations still coming and going different places on the scalp. Does this indicate that more transplanted hair will grow? The reason i ask is I was under the impression this pimple sensation occurs no longer than 4 or 5 months.


In my experience, the majority of pimples appear between 3 to 5 months after my hair transplant. But I did get the occasional pimple all the way up to 9 months to a year. Since you are only at the 7th month after hair restoration surgery, expect more hair regrowth and thickening over the next several months.

You can facilitate the dissipation of pimples by dampening it with a warm wet cloth. If you suspect any infection or extended inflammation, talk to your hair transplant surgeon.
