Recovering After Hair Restoration Surgery

Monday, November 23rd, 2009


Hello Dr. Mohebi,

It’s my sixth day after I got my hair transplant in Los Angeles and all seems to be healing and on track. The other day, when I was shampooing, I noticed some follicles. Maybe about six of them. Is this something to be concerned about?

What I’m pressing about is the staples area of my head. It doesn’t look infected or have a lot of inflammation, but it is really sensitive, meaning that I feel pain each time I hit that area of my head on something or just swipe my head past a car head cushion. Also, with not much shock, the pain level has increased as I’ve taken less anti-inflammatory drugs. Are there any over the counter pills you’d recommend. Whether topical or oral drugs, it doesn’t matter to me.

All I know is, I’m really stoked about getting these staples removed in a few months! Can’t wait until they’re off.



Dear Joe,

After a period of time, the closed donor wound sensitivity to pain and its tenderness will decrease. But after a few days, the patient might feel some pain in the donor area while on medication. If the case happens to be that the transplant donor area is becoming more sensitive, pay me a visit and I’ll take a look at your donor area to make sure its healing properly.

Yours truly,
