Two Hair Transplants - Different Hair Growth Timeline?

6/12/2008 9:43:54 PM

Question:

I am 4 months out from my second hair transplant surgery (corrective surgery) and haven't experienced much hair growth. I actually remember hair growing much faster the first time around - even though the first one looked "pluggy". Is it possible to have different rates of hair regrowth from different procedures?

Answer:

I had the same concerns after my second and third hair restoration surgery. In my experience, my hair grew in just a little bit differently and at different rates after each hair transplant. Even though it's natural, try your best not to compare one to the other or you may drive yourself crazy. As long as you've chosen a world class hair replacement surgeon, trust the process and your hair growth will come.
