Growth

You can expect to see 80% of the growth at 8 months and 95% of the growth at one year. Hair still comes out after that, but only a small amount

Hair growth process after #hairtransplant

Each implanted hair goes through its cycle of hair growth. Depending on where in the cycle it is, then it will start to grow in. Usually you see growth starting after four months and it may take up to 18 months for all the hair to grow I .

Had my hair transplant 5.5 months ago

You would able to see increasing number of hairs in 1-2 months and they will be get thicker and more mature by time. But behind frontal hair line there is a gap that is because of  loose packing and needs more transplant. 

Existing hairs will get final result in 12-14 months and you should wait for 7 months more .

What to expect after Hair Transplant?

Transplanted hairs start to visibly regrow between months 4-6. At month 6-9, a patient may expect to see growth for  80% of the transplants. Again, due to the random cycle of hair growth, not all grafts will start growing at the same time. Initially, the hair my be thinner and finer. It will gain length and density as it matures. 

Full growth from the transplants is usually achieved at 12 months. All the best
