How Long Before Hair Transplant Shows Results?

Once you have had a hair transplantation procedure and the donor follicular units have been implanted in to the balding areas of your scalp, it’s a waiting game.
This is because transplanted hair goes through the exact same resting and growing phases of your normal hair.
The hairs of the transplanted grafts will begin to grow at approximately 4 months after your procedure and will continue to grow through months 10 – 12 post- operatively.

Fast or Slow Grower?

It depends entirely on the patient as some people are fast growers, whilst others grow hair more slowly. Also, transplanted hair takes a while to become noticeably thick, but once it does it will grow very well indeed.
Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair; depending on how quickly they reach the growth phases of their cycle.

Thin Initially, then Lush

The transplanted hair is usually quite thin at first, and then becomes thicker and lusher with each growth cycle. After about a year to a year and a half, the patient’s transplanted hair will have reached maturity and will be growing normally.
As this hair is completely resistant to the hormonal changes that caused hair loss in the first place, it continues to grow strongly for the life of the patient.

Completely Natural Results

The technology used for hair transplantation today is highly effective; ensuring that hair taken from donor sites is at optimal health; that site scarring is kept to a minimum, and that placement of donor hair into recipient sites looks completely natural and results are undetectable.
