I have done a hair transplant.
The deal was for 3100 hairs.
My ops started at 10.00 a.m and finished at 2 a.m.
The team did a hectic work.

But or all the efforts, they completed only front area.

They told that they have done 3100 hairs.

How do i make sure that they have kept their bargain ?

One derma told that they have done only 200 hairs ?

Please assist

Brief Answer:
good work done

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for attaching the image.
Dont worry a good job has been done.
At least 3000 follicles have been transplanted.
The person who said 200 was misguiding you.
Just take care not to touch or pick at the grafts for next 10 days.
You can expect a good hair growth within 3 months.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
these are just scabs

Detailed Answer:
Dont worry its totally normal.
These scabs will fall.
These are not hair follicles.
Just dont pick on them.

By 15 days all the scabs will fall, even the implanted hair will fall.
Later new growth will begin and those newly grown hairs will last forever.

Dont worry you have got a good procedure done.

You can ask me any number of queries,

I am here to help you out.

Thank you
