It may take over a year to see results. If you don't see results, after a year it may be a failed hair transplant.

Bad Results from Hair Transplant

There are 2 important things to consider when having a hair transplant. First, see a trusted full time hair restoration surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for hair transplantation. I.E. Make sure that you are not suffering from a condition that would preclude you from hair transplantation. Secondly, great hair transplant results are not an accident. It comes from years of dedication to methods of insuring great results, artistic hair line design, caring for grafts during extraction, dissection and placing.

Medicine

Since this is a medical procedure and not every procedure produces results, it is possible to have a transplant and not get growth.  However, it is rare.  The best thing to do is go in for a follow up and talk to your doctor directly.  From the pictures, it does look like you have a tougher scalp to get results from with thinner hairs and hair density.  Did you get FUT or FUE?
