Can you suggest to me the best hair transplant technique? And after my hair transplant surgery will I have to take off from my work for a few days??

Answered on 23rd May '24

The choice of the best hair transplant technique depends on various factors, including your hair loss pattern, donor hair availability, and your preferences. Two common methods are Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUT involves removing a strip of the scalp for grafts, leaving a linear scar, while FUE involves individually extracting follicles, leaving minimal scarring. Regarding recovery, it's advisable to take a few days off work after the surgery. The initial recovery period typically involves some swelling, redness, and scabbing around the transplant area.

Hi. I am 46 years old mother of 2 children aged 13 and 4yrs. In September 2021 I got liposuction and tummy tuck done. After 6 weeks of wearing the prescribed compression garments and daily massages post surgery, I started noticing big, hard eruptions on my stomach area. Some are red and some are very painful. The doctor punctured one of the eruptions to see if any fluid came out but it did not. He then ask me to use Tbac and put me on anti inflammatory medicine+ flexon. Then one day from the eruption i noticed a pus like fluid. Went to the doctor again. A pus culture was done. No bacteria found. Doctor said looks like it is a suture issue with my body not being able to get rid of the dissolvable stitches. He gave me tricort injections on the hard lumps. Now almost 3 weeks later, some are better but new large and painful ones have also formed. Please advise your thoughts on this and what you feel could be wrong. I am very worried.
