This question comes from a member of the Hair Restoration Forum and Social Community:
I recently underwent a hair transplant procedure and noticed the newly implanted follicular unit grafts began shedding after only 11 days post operative. Is this normal? How long does it regularly take for grafts to shed after hair transplant surgery?
On average, follicular unit grafts begin to shed 2 – 4 weeks after a hair restoration procedure and new hairs usually begin growing between months 3 – 5. Knowing this, it probably isn’t too extraordinary to begin shedding grafts at day 11 instead of day 14. Furthermore, implanted follicular units are normally anchored (or secured) between day 7 – 10, and, unless blood is seen when the grafts fall out, shedding between day 11 seems within the standard range.
