Three Weeks after My Hair Transplant the Hairs are Not Shedding

11/11/2010 12:21:05 AM


I recently had a hair transplant. I am now three weeks post-op and my transplanted hairs have not shed but seem to be growing. When will the transplanted hairs shed and regrow? Will this affect my final result? Please clarify.


In most cases, the transplanted hair follicles will shed during the first month after hair restoration surgery and then begin their normal growing cycle. A few patients find that many of their transplanted hairs don’t shed but continue to grow. This is perfectly fine and will not affect the outcome of your hair transplant.
