Is a pink scalp normal after hair transplant surgery?
Yes. Your scalp is expected to be quite red or pink following your hair transplant procedure. The healing process requires inflammation and swelling at both the recipient site and donor area. Due to small amounts of bleeding around each individual incision it is also expected to scab up around the newly relocated follicles. This may look like tiny dark red dots on your head. The recipient site will be open air and never covered with a bandage, this will cause the healing to take a bit longer then the donor site.
Tissue from the transplanted follicles may continue growing for a short time before falling out with the surrounding scabbing. This is completely normal and nothing to be concerned about. The follicle itself is implanted beneath the skin and will start to grow back within the next 3-5 months.
