I had a FUE done about 14 months ago and I noticed these bumps where the hair was transplanted didn’t go away. It’s very visible and from what I have read and photos I have seen, it’s called cobblestones. Should the hair transplant doctor be responsible for fixing this?
I have attached photos of the bumps at the 10 month mark.
The procedure was done in the US is that helps.

Yes they should fix it...what clinic was it?
I contact the the hair transplant doctor and he said these bumps are normal which I don’t think they are. He told me to use retinol which will shrink the bumps. Most of the hair has fallen out, I am to the point I want to shave my head again but the bumps will be very visible. Not sure what I can do if he’s not willing to own up to this. I guess I can go to another clinic and get an evaluation to prove these bumps are cobblestone and take it from there.
I got this done at SV Hair Institute in Foster City, CA.

Definitely get a second opinion. I wouldn't fault the procedure necessarily as some are more prone to that effect. Focus on finding out what could be done about it. Retinol could help, also microneedling and time. It diminish more in a year or two, but not completely.
