6.5 months and no growth

Wait it out until the 8th month and by that time if you don't have growth, hit the panic button and go back to your doctor

Hair Growth Failure

Hair will generally start to regrow 2-5 months after surgery. Some individuals take longer but that is uncommon. The grafts should regrow if the surgery was performed correctly and the pattern of hair loss was diagnosed correctly. You should see your doctor in followup for a recheck.

When to expect hair growth

Most patients are mostly grown out at 6 months.  If you experiencing no growth at 6.5 months, it maybe time to contact your clinic to see if there was some reason for the delay.
