When does Hair Regrowth from a Hair Transplant Start?

6/4/2009 12:09:46 PM

Question:

I had a hair transplant one and half months ago at a hair restoration clinic in MI. None of the hair has fallen out yet. Is this normal? Also when will the new hair start to grow?

Answer:

Hair shedding typically occurs 2 to 4 weeks after the hair transplant. Some can hang on longer and if you're a rare exception perhaps you'll keep some or even all of the transplanted hair without an initial hair shedding period.

Hair regrowth typically occurs between 3 to 5 months after surgical hair restoration and takes up to a year to mature. The most difficult part for many patients is that first few months where they are waiting for new hair growth to come in. Patience during this time is vital and so is trust in the process. Hang in there.
