Hair Transplant - Six Months - No Hair Growth - Is This Unusual?

8/20/2009 2:14:57 PM

Question:

I am six months out from my hair transplant and I can't see any signs of new hair regrowth. Is this normal? I am very worried. Thanks.

Answer:

Six months after hair transplant surgery is a little early to evaluate the final result. However, I would expect that you should have at least some new hair growth by now, unless you are a late bloomer. There have been others in your situation that started late and still got the head of hair they paid for. In my opinion, report your concerns about no growth at this point to your hair restoration physician and hang in there until the maturation date - which is one year after the procedure.

Hang in there!
