Does the donor area look normal?

Hello, its normal to be concerned after a procedure and second guess your decision and the procedure.  You can rest assured the harvest area appears to be in the safe zone.

Donor area?

Everything appears normal.  The harvest hairs have been transplanted from the safe donor area.

Donor Area

Yes it appears as though the hairs extracted were from the correct "safe" area of the head used for donor hairs in a hair transplant.

Your donor area looks like you recently had a FUE harvest. There isn't anything outstanding. If you are concerned

FUE previous week

The area looks freshly done. The redness and the wounds should go away in the next few days as they close with normal healing. If they don't, go back and see your doctor
