At what stage should you begin to think about a failed FUT hair transplant?

Generally I wouldn't start seriously considering a transplant to be a failure until the patient is at 8-10 months with no growth. While most people achieve full growth by month 12, if you start later it is possible that you can see changes keep occurring until up to 18 months. Don't lose hope yet!
It can take 6 to 12 months after surgery to see results. If you are concerned it is best to contact your doctor

Failed FUT hair transplant
Regrowing hair is thin, undersized and not bright untill 4-5 th months of hair transplant. İt's normal for new growing hair starting to get native characteristics, waviness, curl in first 4-5 months..This actually takes 10-13 months for hair to become full mature , as thick and bright as native hair. but if you see nothing after 5 months , you have a problem about un succesfull result.

Failed hair transplant
After 8 months, if the hair has not grown out, you might start thinking about a failed hair transplant as I would expect to see 80% of the growth my then. If you were my patient, I would want to know and make nit right!!!!!
I certainly wouldn't be concerned yet. It's pretty uncommon for none of the hair transplanted to grow. The grafts grow at different times, and the growth can be noted around 6 months. Typically a full evaluation is done at 12 months to determine success.
