How Do Transplanted Hairs Mature after Hair Restoration Surgery?

10/17/2013 3:22:17 AM

Question:

What exactly happens as the grafts mature after hair transplant surgery? Do they get thicker? Other changes?

Answer:

Initial hair growth after hair restoration surgery is typically finer in caliber, lighter in color and sometimes, kinky or "twisty" in appearance. Over time, the hairs will become darker, more robust and begin to take on the appearance of your natural hair.
