    Transplanted hair only grows the first year and then it’s considered the final result. It could grow a little more up to 18 nmonths but you shouldn’t expect any more growth at 2 years. If you are dissatisfied, we recommend contacting your doctor and sharing your concerns.

    You are also welcome to share your experience and photos on our free hair loss forum. However, please be aware that patients who share concerns must be willing to share their full experience, pictures and let their doctor share their side of the story.

    Best wishes,

    It sounds as if you have just reached the three month mark. Up to this point, you should not have seen much in the way of hair growth. You have only just entered the early growth phase.

    I cannot say if you damaged your grafts or not. Only time will truly tell but I do recommend that you discuss your concerns with your hair transplant surgeon.

    Ultimately, you will not know what your final results will be for one full year. Try to stay positive. In the event your results do not meet your expectations, discuss your options with your surgeon.

    Best of luck!

    I am 10 weeks into my hair transplant and it is the most depressing time of my life. My transplanted hairs are now shedding along with a lot of my existing hairs. I spoke to my doctor and he said its ok and and that I should just be patient. I have much less hair now than when I first started out. I am also worried that worrying will further affect my hair loss.

    The pinkish hue in the hair transplant recipient area can last for a few weeks to a few months. This is influenced by factors like the skin color and healing characteristics of the individual patient.

    Most of the time, this can be easily camouflaged by growing the hair a little longer. You can also use hair loss concealers like Toppik or DermMatch to help disguise the discoloration.

    I’m not sure I’m understanding your question. Are you concerned that your transplanted hair is growing in more slowly than your natural hair 2 years after surgery? I can’t say I’ve noticed a difference in growth speed between my natural and transplanted hair however, as long as it’s growing and looks natural, I doubt there’s anything wrong. If you are concerned however, you may want to speak to your hair transplant surgeon.

    Two months after hair transplant surgery, you shouldn’t have any swelling on the face and head. If you’re experiencing this, be sure to consult with your hair restoration physicians asap.
