4 Month Growth

4 months is pretty early to expect a lot of growth. Generally if a patient has no growth at 8-9 months is when they should start feeling concerned, so seeing a small amount at month 4 is perfectly fine.

Post graph hair growth

After a hair transplant the grafts go through a resting phase during which time you may lose the graft hairs.This phase can last several months followed by a growth phase at 4 to 6 months.The newly growing hair is thin at first but will thicken over time.By 10 to 12 months you should see the final results.

It can take 6 to 12 months after surgery to see results. If you are concerned it is best to contact your doctor

Regrowth After Hair Transplant

Generally, transplanted hair will reawaken and begin to grow about 2-5 months after surgery. At that point the hair is fine and will thicken over time. Most will get full growth between 10 and 12 months. Not to worry in meantime!

Hair growth timeline

The way the hair cycle works your transplanted hair goes into a Resting Phase (aka "Telogen") about a month after transplant.  The Resting Phase lasts 3-6 months, so the EARLIEST you might BEGIN to see hair is 4 months!

In reality, most hair growth is seen between 6 and 12 months post-op.  It just takes time for hair to grow!  Be patient.  If you don't have great growth by a year, that is the time to start looking for reasons things might not have grown.

Good luck!

4 months after a hair transplant

Growth varies in each individual. I have seen some patients not commence growth until 5-6 months at which time it kicks in well. Be patient for another couple of months

4 months post op FUE

Although hair transplantation results would be better evaluated after 6-8 months , almost half of the transplanted grfats starts to regrowth after 4 months . Unfortunatelly  I agree with you that it is low density hair tranplantation by visual examination.
