Growth

Growth usually take about 8 months for 80% of the results to show. It might be earlier but I always tell my patients to be patient

What to expect ?

Transplanted hairs start to visibly regrow between months 4-6. At month 6-9, a patient may expect to see growth for  80% of the transplants. Again, due to the random cycle of hair growth, not all grafts will start growing at the same time. Initially, the hair my be thinner and finer. It will gain length and density as it matures. Full growth from the transplants is usually achieved at 12 months. In some cases, this can take up to 18 months. This is especially common in female patients. The transplanted hairs will continue to gain length over time.

Growth at 1 Month

One month ago is pretty early to start expecting results. At this time your transplanted hairs could still be falling out- which means that it'd be several more months before you started to see any significant progress being made with your hair.

Mega session 3500 grafts -what to expect

You are only just over one month post FUE to front and top, you need to give it more time.  Between one to 2 months you will see the hair fall out.   This is normal post-transplant.  At 3 months you will start to see regrowth.  At first hair will be thin and fine then over the next few months the hair becomes thicker and coarse.  By the 12 th month you will see full results.
