Few days after the hair transplant surgery, patients start to wonder.
When our planted hair is going to grow? And how many days are needed to take the final result?
Many of patients feel scared because they do not see any hair growth in the first three weeks after hair transplant surgery.
Also may they think that they have been cheated from their doctor and the procedure was a complete failure.
But in fact this is normal and occurs with all patients who get a hair transplant surgery.
-In the first 30 days after hair transplant process, 80% from the planted hair will fall down and start to grow again in the third month.
And the growth rates will be:
1- 5th month= 45% of the final result .
2- 6th month = 50 %
3- 7th month = 55 %
4- 8th month = 60 %
5- 9th month = 70 %
6- 12th month = 100% of the final result.
After 365 days the planted hair will reach his final stage and no more could be growing.
-But these rates could be change due to each person and the planted place too, also they depend on some other factors such as:
The method used in the procedure and the place these follicles are planted, for example follicles in the frontal head area grow faster than those in the crown area because this area includes a limited number of arteries and blood vessels that are responsible for nourishing the hair therefore hair follicles in this area do not receive enough nourishment and consequently its growth rates are slower than the remaining areas.
But as usual all patients aren’t like each other for the growth rates. They can be different:
– 1% of patients start growing hair immediately after the procedure.
– 5% of patients do not start growing hair until the 8th month after the procedure.
– 94% of patients start growing hair gradually after the hair falls off.
In conclusion patients should not hasten result, because true and final results will show up with time.
