Though most hair replacement patients are aware that transplanted hair grows in gradually, many of you 6 months after surgery may be wondering why it still appears thin and doesn’t quite look or feel like the rest of your hair. How long does it take for hair to fully mature and thicken? When will all the transplanted hair grow? Why is one side of my head growing while I see no signs of new hair growth on the other side? What kind of cosmetic difference should I expect between 6 and 12 months after surgery?
