    Default Experience with donor area shock loss?

    Had a DHI in Netherlands 2.5 weeks ago. Clinic has nothing but good reviews.

    I now sent them a picture of my donor area and they say it looks red but nothing abnormal. The patchy hair should even out over time.

    Honestly, I'm kind of freaking out. Been at home for almost three weeks and now slowly obsessing over it.

    Who here has had the same look on the donor area? Does it even out? Or does it just look like a bad job?

    Thanks so much for the feedback!

    Redness is normal because your skin color is light. As fas as I heard, it should pass in maximum 2 months.
    How many grafts were transplanted?

    Hello Sammmuel,

    Thank for the reply. 2000 grafts. I can see the redness is fading but the hair still looking very patchy. That's what I'm most worried about.
