I had a hair transplant 2 months ago and I’m not seeing any new growth. Should I be worried?
There is no need to worry. Your transplanted hair will start to grow between 3 to 5 months post-op.
Because these hairs have undergone the trauma of surgery, the hairs all shed after a hair transplant (which typically happens between 2-4 weeks post-op). This hair shedding is referred to as the telogen phase. From this point, a new hair begins to grow from the hair folicle (called the anagen phase). But this process takes time, which is why it takes 3 to 5 months for the hair follicle to become visible – though growth begins much earlier (under the scalp). To learn more about the healthy hair growth cycle, read the following hair loss Q&A Blog.
The “waiting game” is the hardest part of a hair transplant. Do your best to be Patient!!!
Remember also that just because the transplanted hairs will break through the surface of your skin between 3 to 5 months doesn’t mean that it will be visible right way. Hair Transplantation hair growth is a gradual process. This is why it’s best to document your progress with monthly pictures. When comparing them, especially those pictures a few months apart, you will certainly see a difference.
