I recently underwent hair restoration surgery and now have small “pimples” or bumps in my donor region. I know these are often common in the recipient region (post-operatively), but is it normal to have pimples in the donor area after hair transplant surgery?
The trichophytic closure was designed to allow hairs to grow through the follicular unit transplantation scar, but sometimes the hairs are blocked or become trapped when growing through. Although they will eventually “break through,” the hairs will create a “pimple” – like blemish in the meantime.
However, if they become persistant with a lot of redness and tenderness, I would recommend you have an experienced hair restoration physician take a look at it.
