    Hello,
    I had a fue Hair transplantatie 10 days ago. The company promised that my donor area is thin but good enough to cover the top of my head and still cover the back. They did between 3k and 3.5k grafts. After 10 days i noticed that my hair on the side is not growing back as well as i expected before surgery. This was also the area where they started extracting hairs and i suspect that they went in too hard at the beginning extracting too much. One picture is after 2 saus and the other 10 days. Is my donor area mistreated? And what would you suggesties me doing? I am worried..

    Thank you in advance.

    I am no expert, but I’ll try to respond the best I can since it’s been a few days.

    Firstly, where did you get the work done? This is relevant for two reasons: first, you should go back and see the doctor, and second, I’d be researching reviews / cases where things like this have happened at the same clinic. Look for bad ones, not the good ones. Hopefully you can’t find any.

    Next, if this is only 10 days after it is possible that you’re experiencing shock loss in your donor area. What what I know about that, it is more rare in the donor area but it does happen. Based on photo 1, I can understand why. If this is the case then the hair would grow back in time.

    The donor area will remain thin looking for a month or so. I believe the trauma from the surgery causes hairs next to the extraction sites too thin out for a bit.

    Who was the doctor? This is normal loss from shock and should grow back but if not it's balding from depleting the donor.
