Do hair transplants bleed?
One of the pre-op concerns that we hear voiced most often is: "does a hair transplant bleed?"
Truthfully, yes - hair transplants do bleed. However, each wound is about the size of a very small pinprick, and therefore, the blood dries very quickly and the scab is quite small. After your surgery, there will be thousands of tiny scabs on your head!
As tempting as it may be, please do not pick at the scabs under any circumstance, and allow them to slough off naturally. Picking at the scabs can cause great damage to your new follicles, and may cause unnecessary scarring as well.
After about 7-10 days, the scabs will fall off naturally, leaving behind your newly transplanted follicles.
