Do the implanted hair 1st fall off?
Doctor Answers 4
Yes. Within the first month or so for most patients, the majority to all of their implanted hairs should shed. They'll regrow starting in the next few months, anywhere from 3 if you're early to 9 if you're late.
Transplanted hairs fall out in a few weeks. New hairs will grow out in 6 to 12 months. You may see some growth at 3 to 4 month
Hair shedding after a hair surgery
On the week 1-2 the transplanted hairs will start to shed at this point, and by the end of the 3rd/4th week, most will be gone. This is a normal part of the healing process and is totally expected. The newly transplanted hairs go through a shedding process as the actual hair shaft is released, but the actual folliculare unit and bulb are totally intact starting to grow a new hair shaft. This is part of the normal hair cycle. Months 3-4 the new hairs should start coming out. For some patients, their transplanted hairs start growing early in the timeline, for others they start growing later. You will see the new transplants but they will be thin at this stage as they begin to emerge from the scalp. Most of the native hair will be growing back at this time
All the best
