FUE growth 4 months?

I am 4 mos out after FUE. Norwood 3V. I have a few new hairs in the front, and can't see any growth in the crown. When do most people start to see growth that they can be excited about?

Growth at 4 months after hair transplant

At four months post surgery, you can already see thin fine hair growing.  You will need to wait until10-12 months after your procedure for full results.

FUE Hair Transplant Timeline

You will start to see growth around the 3-4 month mark. From 6-9 months the growth will increase and you will really start to notice the transplanted hairs growing in. After 1 year you should notice the majority of your hair grown in.

FUE growth at 4 months

At about 4-6 months, the new hair usually start growing and by the 8th month, 80% of the hairs will be at a length of about 1 inch
