This question, asked by a member of our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums, was answered by Coalition hair restoration physician Dr. Timothy Carman:
It’s been 4 weeks since my hair transplant and my donor scar is still very red. Should I be concerned?
It may just be your skin type and its healing characteristics. Really, the issue is whether it feels tender or warm to the touch.
It would be unusual to have any sort of infection or reaction this far out, unless of course your hair restoration surgeon used dissolvable sutures. If that is the case, the redness should decrease as that process resolves.
