FUE Hair Transplant Success. What are the failure rates?? (photos)

Hair growth process
Hair growth from surgery is a gradual process that only starts between 3 to 5 months. Hair will typically start to grow as thin, colorless, and wispy and continue to mature up to 18 months. At around 9 months, most of the hair has at least started to grow and is well on its way to maturity. But hair thickening and darkening will continue for some time and will have a significant impact on the overall cosmetic result. The word “result” therefore becomes very subjective. If you are talking about seeing a cosmetic difference in your hair density and coverage, most hair transplant patients see some nice growth around 6-8 months. The final result won’t come until 12 months after surgery.
All the best
Not re-growth of grafts, the re-growth numbers of the hair is the criteria
There is a 90% re-growth rate in normal FUE procedures and this is considered quite acceptable. The re-growth rate is of course not the only criteria for success in FUE procedures. For a real evaluation of re-growth, we must look to the the re-growth of the number of hairs per follicle, not the number of grafts. This is directly related to the "Coverage Value" of your result.
Going to a good doctor

Failure rate after FUE
Success rate is high for your aprox. 2000-2500 Grafts
For what is seen in your pictures you will need approx. 2000-2500 grafts.
I will recommend you to also start using non-surgical treatments such as Propecia, Minoxidil, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or laser therapy in order to keep as much of your existing hair as possible.
The success rate in a FUE is approximately 90-92%, wich can give you some peace of mind if you go to the right doctor and follow the Post Operative Care Instructions.
In regards to the number of grafts and quality of your donor area we can only be sure after having a one on one consultation.
Feel free to ask more questions.
Best of lucks,
Failure of transplanted hair to grow may be dependent on the reputation of the clinic as well as uncontrollable (human variable)
