Today is August 14 and I am exactly one month or 31 days post-op from my surgery.
Surprisingly I have a lot of hairs from the original grafts still in and some one-hair micrografts have started to grow as well.
My scalp where the grafts were transplanted is a little pink and looks like I have a sunburn, but I don’t think anyone would notice it unless I point it out. I’ve had two ingrown hairs in the transplanted area since my surgery and they haven’t been a problem. I still feel a little numb in the top of my scalp where many of the larger, slit grafts were placed but I was told that some numbness and redness can last a few months after surgery.
The suture line is healing well and I am back to my normal routine of working out, riding my bike, and playing sports and there is no tightness in the suture line.
I haven’t had a haircut since my surgery as the scalp next to the suture line that was shaved but not excised is growing, so I will wait until the trimmed hair around the suture line is a decent length so my haircut will blend everything in.
Check back soon for my next update.
All my best,
