Why Is My Hair Growth Uneven 6 Months after Hair Transplant Surgery?

10/14/2011 3:16:28 AM

Question:

I had a hair transplant 6.5 months ago. The transplanted area is growing but my right side has not grown in as much as the left side. Why is this? Will it grow later? Kindly advise.

Answer:

Don’t worry; it’s perfectly normal for hair growth to lag behind on one side or the other after surgical hair restoration. At only 6.5 months post-op, you’ve got a lot more growth and maturation to come.

Eventually, both sides should even out and look the same.
