How long will it be before I notice a difference after a hair transplant?

After a hair transplant, the initial results may not be immediately noticeable. It takes time for the transplanted hair follicles to establish new blood supply and start growing. Typically, the transplanted hair will shed within the first few weeks after the procedure. This shedding is a normal part of the hair growth cycle and should not be a cause for concern.

New hair growth usually begins around 3 to 4 months after the transplant, but it can take up to 6 to 12 months for the full results to become apparent. During this period, the transplanted hair follicles gradually enter the growth phase and produce new, permanent hair. The rate of hair growth varies from person to person, so individual experiences may differ.

It’s important to have realistic expectations and be patient during the post-transplant period. Following your hair transplant specialist’s aftercare instructions and attending follow-up appointments can help ensure optimal healing and hair growth.
