    Unhappy Redness, Ridging, Cobblestoning and Folliculitis

    Hi guys,

    I've had two FUT hair transplants, the first in June 2014 and another one in July 2015.

    Although I went to a highly reputed coalition doctormy first hair transplant didn't work. Only about 20% or so of the grafts actually grew. And I was left with a lot of scarring on the recipient area and experienced lingering redness, which lasted for around 8-9 months.

    Now I am 3 weeks post op from my second surgery with a different doctor, and want to make sure everything looks good as I wouldn't be able to cope with the expense, time and emotional impact of another failed hair transplant.

    My scalp is still red, and I am concerned I might be developing any or a combination of the following: cobblestoning, ridging and folliculitis? Can anyone help? I really want it to work this time.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    J.

    So you had one transplant with a reputable doctor that failed, and you got another one?? May I ask why?

    Hi CXXC, Did the redness and cobblestoning appearance go away completely in 8-9 months? Or was there still some there? I'm looking at the first picture you have on the top left. Is that before any work was done or after the 1st procedure?

    Yes, because I had no other option: I can't shave my head as I have an FUT scar. And also, about 20% or so of the hairs implanted in the my previous surgery did actually grow, meaning that if I had left it alone I'd end up with a bald hairline with patches of hair cover here and there... not a really good look.

    Hi bhallic24,

    From my first procedure: redness lasted around 6-7 months!!! and cobblestoning/scarring was still visible 1 year later on left side. Right side was ok.

    No, my fist picture on top left is after the second HT. The horrendous haircut was done by the clinic and I'll be able to get a proper haircut in 5 days... can't wait.

    Hey! I'm trying to keep positive, what else can I do? What do you mean thinning on the sides? I think that's just the stupid haircut that was done before the HT.. I hope I won't go bald on the sides too ahah
