Hair Transplant Results at 3 Months?

7/1/2009 12:10:18 PM

Question:

Does hair from a hair transplant start growing around the third month or has all the hair grown in by three months?

Answer:

Transplanted hair only typically starts to grow between 3 to 5 months after the hair transplant procedure. New hair typically starts growing fine and colorless and slowly thickens, darkens, and matures over time. Your new hair will also start to grow at different times at not all at once. This process of maturation takes up to a year which is why reserving judgment on the final result should be reserved until maturation is complete. The best way to monitor the progress of hair regrowth is by taking monthly photos of your scalp. Since growth is so gradual, it's virtually impossible to notice any new changes from day to day in the mirror.
