3 Months Post-Op Hair Transplant and Still Swollen, Options?

Doctor Answers 3

You shouldn't have swelling after 3 months.

You shouldn't have swelling after 3 months.  You need to see your doctor for a recheck.
You will lose your transplanted hair as well as some of your native hair weeks after surgery. You may look
worse before it starts to look better. It may take 6 to 12 months to see the results of a hair transplant
surgery.

Swelling three months after a hair transplant

Swelling three months after surgery is not typical. You should immediately consult with the original surgeon who performed your hair transplant. What type of procedure did you have?

I have never treated such a complaint as you describe it. Some photos and a more detailed description of the swelling would help me to respond
