Growth at 4 Months

No need to be worried yet. At 4 months many people don't see any growth. You should start seeing it happen in the next few months, but if by 8 months you haven't seen any progress you should start talking to your doctor about possible corrections that may need to be considered.

4 months after a hair transplant

At 4 months, some people have no growth. Wait another few months and by the 8th month you should see 80% of the growth out at 1 1/2 inch length

4 months post-op

You have answered your own question my friend - 4 months is too early to see growth post hair transplant.  You really need the full year.Incidentally, no one really knows if PRP speeds regrowth of grafts, and it might - but it is pretty well-established that finasteride and minoxidil DO speed regrowth - so you might try those first.Good luck!

Progress after 4 months for FUE procedure

ArulMohan,Thanks for the question. It is difficult to assess progress without the benefit of before photos. However, since you are noticing at least 10-15% growth, I would recommend that you not worry now. It is early and you are probably seeing some early growth at this 4 month stage. Let's re-visit at the one year mark!
All the best,
