After a hair transplant, when the hair starts to sprout at 3 months, will the hair come out of the skin all at once? Like all the grafts that were planted? Or, will they come out little by little and not at once.
I had read somewhere that all the follicular units that are viable and can grow hair, sprout at once between 3 and 4 months post-op and after that, it’s basically thickening and maturing.
They do not grow all at once at 3-4 months although there is a dominance of hair growth either at 5-7 or 8-10 months. Depending on the biology of each patient, totally new hairs may sprout after 12 months.
