Hair transplant growth graph after hair transplant surgery
Some people think that the transplanted hair will grow as it is right after hair transplant surgery. Today, I will explain the process of hair regrowth after hair transplant and you will be able to know what really happens to your transplanted hair.
Up to one month after hair transplant surgery is called the hair loss period, and the transplanted hair falls out in more than 99% of patients. For very selected people, transplanted hair will stay and will grow as it is. I have done more than few thousand cases, and I have only seen 3 cases where the transplanted hair came up as it was right after the surgery.
From 1 month to 4 months after surgery is called the hair latent period, and the transplanted hair will remain in a shed state. This is the time when patients are most anxious and express their dissatisfaction. Because they have gone through a surgery and nothing seemed to have changed yet.
After 4 months, transplanted hair will start to grow out rapidly and we call this a hair growth period. During this periods, patients finally see changes on their hair state. When you take a look at the graph, 50% growth of transplanted hair occurs during 6 month periods and 90% growth of transplanted hair occurs within 12 months. So to really see the result of the hair transplant, you need to wait a year for an evaluation.
