How long until hair grows after transplant?
It is rare that someone is pleased with improvement in the hairline two to six months after surgery. I typically inform my patients that between 4-6 months only small, fine hairs will be present and it is not until the last bit of the year that full growth and coverage are present. The full results usually happen around 12 months but sometimes up to 14-18 months after surgery. If there are concerns with outcomes and results it is helpful to visit with your hair transplant surgeon.

Thanks for your question. You should give it at least 6 months before assessing your transplant. Often times the transplanted hair will shed and the follicle will need to produce a new hair. This can take several months. Try to be patient. Best of luck.

Thanks for your question. It takes 6 months to 1 year after hair transplant to see great results. It is normal to experience shedding of hair at the donor site at this phase of healing (only 6 weeks) and then expect new growth in 3 to 4 months. Try to be patient and continue to discuss your concerns with your provider.

I would give it 4 months for a significant number of follicles to start producing a hair shaft and up to a year for full results.
It takes 6 months to a year to see growth after performing the hair transplantation procedure. It is normal to experience anxiousness shortly after. Wait patiently and remain positive.
#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!
