How long ago was your transplant?

The hair after a transplant takes 3-4 months to initially start growing, but not all of the hair grows at the same time or the same rate. More change will be seen by the 8-12 month mark, but keep in mind that the hair only grows 1/4 to 1/2 an inch a month. If you have concerns, you should contact the surgeon who performed your transplant so that you can review your preoperative photos.

Hair growth after a hair transplant

After you wait at least 5-6 months, hair should then grow at a rate of about 1/2 inch per month achieving 80% of the results in 8 months

Growing process After a 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.
