1 month after hair transplant
At this point you jut have to wait. I can understand your anxiety, but you have to have confidence in the work of the team. Hairs go through this normal cycle after grafting. You aren't going to see roots like a plant. The follicle by one month is integrated but often not producing hair.
One month post surgery- what to expect?
In the first few days, there is redness and progressively some scabs can develop. Gentle rinsing the scalp helps reduce the chances of thick crusts developing.
After the first week, intense redness and swelling are gone and one is left with a a mildly red scalp and the newly transplanted hairs are in place
However... Starting one week to two weeks post op the little hairs may start falling out (shedding). This often occurs earlier in FUE than FUT. Even though the hairs start falling out they leave behind their roots.
After one month it typically looks like nothing has been done! the newly transplanted hairs have fallen out, the redness is gone.... And the waiting now starts for the new hairs to come back up in 2 months!!!
All in all, be sure to check in with your surgeon if worried, but what you are describing is normal.

Hair One Month After FUE Hair Transplant
Your hair loss should get started in months 2 and 3 and at 6 months you can expect that they are all grown. They will keep becoming longer and full result is expected to be seen in months 12 to 18.
You will lose your transplanted hair as well as some of your native hair weeks after surgery. You may look
worse before it starts to look better. It may take 6 to 12 months to see the results of a hair transplant
surgery. It is always a good idea to follow up with your doctor for a recheck if you have concerns.
Concerned About Re-growth of Hair Transplants
You should start seeing new hairs growing again at about month 3 to 4 and then improving every month up to about 12 months.
We typically have patients come back to our office many times during this period just to calm nerves and remind them that things will improve over time.
I would suggest calling your doctor and setting up a follow up visit so he or she can have a look.
