Hi Dr. Epstein:
I had FUT hair transplant surgery in the front portion of my head. After 14 days, I removed them some while combing. The wound scabs came out with small hairs. My question is whether the grafts inserted are permanent now and whether the hair which came out at the grafts. Please answer my question. Thank You.
Dear Nancy- At 7 days, any hairs that fall out will leave the follicles behind, which will then grow new hairs in several months. You have nothing to be worried about, as long as your procedure was performed correctly.
