I had hair transplant surgery 7 months ago. I am not seeing good results on both sides of my head. Though I can see hairs growing in frontal area, density is not that good. I had 4500 grafts.
I also want to know what kind of effects excessive sexual activities like sex or masturbation cause on hair transplant growth.
At 7 months post-op, you have probably only seen about 70% of your final hair growth. It’s common for initial regrowth to be uneven during this time. You’ll need to wait the full one year before assessing the full extent of your results. However, I recommend that you discuss your concerns with your hair transplant surgeon and find out what your options are in the event that your final yield is less than expected.
It’s often recommended that patients refrain from sexual activity for about 10 days after surgery. This is the time it takes for the follicular unit grafts to heal. After that, sexual activity will have no effect on the outcome of hair restoration surgery.
