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?

Most people begin seeing results before month 6, but for some it may take as long as month 9. Just be patient and talk to your doctor if you are concerned about your hair's growth.

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.
