Hair growth following Neograft
Best of luck!
#Neograft hair transplantation
Many patients ask this exact question! Hair growth after transplantation varies from patient to patient. You are very early in the process and what you are experiencing is normal. Patients don't have the full effect until at least 6 months (and probably more like 10-12 months after the procedure). It will get better! Best, Dr. M
Hair regrowth after transplant
After a hair transplant, most patients lose the old hair shafts of the follicles that were transplanted at about 3 weeks. This is normal and expected. Regrowth is determined by where in the growth cycle each follicle was when transplanted. On average, we expect to start seeing early signs of regrowth at 2-3 months. But some follicles may take 6 months or more to start regrowing. So the process requires a great deal of patience. In general, 12 months is considered your final result. So I tell patients to think in terms of 10% regrowth per month between month 2 & 12. For instance, 6 months would be 40%, 9 months would be 70%, etc. It doesn't come in this exact % per month, but really helps to keep you on track with your expectations and not get stressed unnecessarily.

Patience is a virtue
Hair Growth after NeoGraft
There are things that I perform during and/or immediately after the transplant to try to decrease the chances of shedding of the old hair in the follicles and keep it in a growing stage. I use PRP/plasma during the procedure and also have patients use low level light therapy immediately after the transplant to try to continuously stimulate the hair follicles. Patience...Patience... it usually takes 9-12 months to see the final results. Good luck!
How long before I see hair?
With that said, and six months you will see a significant amount of hair growth and increased density.
I have found that in many cases when the patient is in the 30's or early 40's many of the hairs do not fallout at all. This is particularly true when the graphs are performed rapidly and not sitting on the table in a solution for a long period of time before being placed in the recipient site.
Relax. You will begin to feel the small hairs growing at about 3 to 4 months. Six weeks is way too early t start worrying. Thank you for your question.
How long for hair growth after NeoGraft hair transplants?
- If you are only 6 weeks out from the procedure and your hair has not grown much-- then everyting is probably completely normal!!!!
- NeoGraft has a VERY high success rate and in our practice at WESTMED NeoGraft, we have had no patients with major failures. Most of the hair grows in nicely.
- With 2000 grafts, you should see a major improvement.
- Listen to your doctor. It does take time. Hair grows then sheds over the the first few months, then regrows and STAYS!.
- I tell our patients that 9- 12 months is the real time frame for significant regrowth, though some lasting growth can occur by 6 months.
Hair growth after Neograft
NeoGraft hair growth
I typically see shedding of the new hairs between 1-3 months. After this period your new hair will begin to grow. Each month your will notice more growth. Your true end result won't be for 12-18 months.
There are several ways to help speed up the process. We like to use PRP , laser caps, and hair products that contain copper. Stay hydrated and taking a biotin supplement will also help with your hair process.
Best of Luck to you!
Around 6 months
