Fever after FUE

If your fever is from something unrelated to the transplant (cold/flu, etc.) then your transplants should be fine. If it's accompanied by signs that point to an infection on your scalp (scalp redness, irritation, etc.) then that is something you need to see your doctor about in order to address.

Hair transplant and fever

Unless you have a scalp infection causing your fever it is unlikely that the fever will affect your grafts.   Your new hair grafts are set in their new location by the end of the 4th day.  If you are uncertain regarding your condition, return to your hair transplant specialist for re-evaluation

If you are having fevers it is best to contact your doctor for a follow up. You need an examination and possible treatment.

Fever after the transplant

A fever shouldn't effect the result of your transplant, provided it is not related to the procedure.  Please contact your physician if the fever doesn't subside or you are concerned of a infection on the scalp.

FUE and fever

Fever in and of itself should not change your results unless the fever is from a significant scalp infection.If you have concerns about your scalp than return to your transplant surgeon.If your fever is from something unrelated than you shouldn't have a problem with your grafts.
