Hair Transplants: You may experience swelling on the scalp, head and forehead regions after surgery. Do not be alarmed if the skin on your head feels tender or even painful to the touch for the first week. Your doctor should regularly monitor your progress and see that your scalp is properly healing. If you experience any extreme bleeding or severe itchiness, or if your wounds appear to get worse, see your doctor.
