I’m three months post-op from my hair transplant and feeling quite a bit of stubble. Is it my shock loss hair returning (I had it bad) or the newly transplanted follicular unit grafts growing?
This insightful information was posted on our hair restoration forum by Dr. Cam Simmons of Toronto, OT who is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians.
You are feeling both. Most of the transplanted hairs and some of the existing hair are shed due to the “shock” of hair restoration surgery. They grow back the same way. They will start off fine and tapered and will get wider as they get longer. Eventually your hair stylist will cut off the tapered tops.
