Que: I recently had a hair transplant, with 2000 grafts. Three days after the transplant, I felt a certain tightness behind my ears, and this sensation as if, there was some fluid leaking inside my head. Is this feeling normal or is something wrong?
Ans: The area behind the ears has minimal elasticity, which is why it is prone to tightness, after a strip surgery or FUT. The feeling is common and will disappear over a period of time. Now, during an FUT procedure, some fluid is administered in the form of tumescence, mainly in the area, where the strip has been taken from. This is why, when you lie down the fluid seeps out. There is nothing to worry about, but if you have any apprehensions, you can meet the doctor who did your procedure, as they will be able to explain all this in greater detail.
