What kind of growth to expect six months after FUE transplant?

Growth at 6 Months
At 6 months out you probably still have a significant amount of growing left to do. It's very likely that the transplants will increase both in thickness and length. Of course, it is different for everyone and some people grow primarily in the first few months while others grow primarily in the later few months. But 6 months means you're not done. It's not until about 10 months that a lack of density should be concerning since typically people reach full growth at a year.
What to expect 6 months post op
Transplanted hairs start to visibly regrow between months 4-6. At month 6-9, a patient may expect to see growth for 80% of the transplants. Again, due to the random cycle of hair growth, not all grafts will start growing at the same time. Initially, the hair my be thinner and finer. It will gain length and density as it matures. Full growth from the transplants is usually achieved at 12 months
6 months after transplant
Growth usually begins at between 3-6 months then grows out at a rate of about 1/2 inch per month. The growth occurs in waves, some earlier and some later in this cycle

Hair transplant growth at 6 months.
At six months post operative a hair transplant you can expect a lot more growth. Typically I tell my patients that at 6 months they are about 50% complete. Most patients are just beginning to see some growth at 6 months. Be patient. It sounds like you will be more pleased.
