I did my first hair transplant surgery at a well respected clinic in the summer of 2010 and got excellent results. I mainly did the front then and I had very early growth. I saw a significant change already at about 2.5 months. This summer I had my second procedure with the same hair restoration surgeon and I’m now about 3.5 months out from the surgery in which we mainly concentrated on restoring my temple points and crown. The temple points are already there and it’s fantastic to see such a big change in such a short time. But, not much has happened in the crown region. I can see a little hair growth but not much. Should I be worried, since I already have significant growth at the temples, but not in the crown? Can the crown growth be that much slower?
Over the past 14 years, I have routinely observed slower hair regrowth in the crown region compared to other areas, including the frontal and mid scalp. It is not always the case but is an unwritten, general rule.
