Hair Transplant Growth Timeline

Hair Transplant Growth Timeline12

Hair transplant is considered to be the last resort for people who cannot sort out their balding issues. At first dermatologists always try to save your hair through medicines, or creams/gels, but in case they don’t work out, they always suggest that you go through a surgery.

After the surgery takes place, the hair graft growth takes at least a year to get to the final result of what has actually happened on your scalp. Let’s take a look at the timeline for hair transplant growth.

1-6 Days after Operation

During this time an average patient experiences some swelling on the scalp and even on the forehead. It starts on the third day after the operation and tones down after the sixth day. There are certain blood clots at the incision sites as well. The recipient area is slightly pinkish.

10-14 Days after Operation

This is the time when the staples are ready to be removed. This process is easy and can be completed by even an average local doctor in your area. You might also experience hair shedding. Don’t panic if your hair shed, because that is completely normal.

1-3 Months after Operation

By this time the patient will experience new hair sprouting out of his/her scalp. This phase varies from patient to patient but an average patient would start growing hair after one and a half month. The new hair will be thin and thicken over time, so there is no need to worry.

5-6 Months after Operation

The patient starts experiencing new growth after five to six months. The hair growing on your scalp is mostly thick and healthy.

8-10 Months after Operation

These are the most impressive months for a patient who has gone through a surgical hair transplant. He/she is going to see a significant difference between his current scalp and the one that he had previously. The hair grown will be extremely dense and the overall appearance will be good too.

1 Year after Operation

By this time a full year has passed and the patient can easily work his/her way through. Certain improvement will still be seen as compared to the last two months. The hair growing will continue to grow for the rest of the patient’s life as it is a permanent procedure.
