How common is it to have numbness two months after hair transplant surgery?
Numbness of the top the scalp is very common after hair restoration surgery. When making incisions in the balding area, the nerves that innervate the scalp are “stunned” for a while.
Most patients experience complete return of sensation to the top of their scalp two to four months following hair transplant surgery as the nerves “wake up”.
