How common is immediate growth for hair transplants
Hair transplants shed their graft hairs usually 95% of the time. In about 5% of patients, the hair grows on day one and keeps growing. I love when that happens
We see this in 10-30% of our patients. It is not common but also not a bad thing if it happens. However, if any concerns make sure to go inf or a follow up.
Shedding of the transplanted hairs occurs on a case by case basis at about 3 weeks from surgery. It is common to lose most or all of the hair shafts, however the follicles remain behind and will start to regrow hair at about 2-3 months. I think more than 90% of the patients shed transplanted hair shafts completely.
Most of the transplanted hairs shed before new hairs start to grow. In some cases (less than 10%) the transplanted hairs may co
Most of the transplanted hairs shed before new hairs start to grow. In some cases (less than 10%) the transplanted hairs may continue to grow.
