I had a hair transplant 4 months ago and I have better than expected hair growth at this point. I had 2300 grafts in the front of my head. The surgeon said he put more grafts on the right side as I had less hair there. My only issue is that my left side is growing great but my right, although it has hair growing, there is not as much and there is a small spot where it look a little patchy (no hair).
My question is, should my hair on the right side even out as it is on my left and is it possible to still have small patches with no growth and this just fill in by themselves? As I said, I am happy but hope that right side fills in more.
After hair restoration surgery, it’s not uncommon for hair to begin filling in thicker on one side of the hairline. You are still quite early in the hair growth phase and I suggest waiting a few more months before trying to assess your hair transplant. In all likelihood, your hair will eventually even out on both sides.
In the meantime, I recommend discussing your concerns with your hair restoration physician in order to find out what his or her policy is, in the event that you require a small touch up. Most ethical hair transplant surgeons will offer free or greatly reduced touch up procedures to address areas of low growth.
