When does Hair Start to Grow after Hair Transplant?

When does Hair Start to Grow after Hair Transplant?

When does Hair Start to Grow After Hair Transplant? - Hair transplantation is the most effective and permanent way to tackle hair loss problems. While hair re-growth drugs and other artificial techniques are unsafe and give rise to many side effects, hair transplant is much safer if proper care is taken. However, unlike other surgical methods, you cannot see any overnight results with a hair transplant in Turkey. Many patients with hair thinning or balding problems wonder how long it actually takes for hair to start growing back after a transplantation surgery. Read on and know all about it.

Shedding of grafted hairs

The positive effects of a hair transplantation surgery cannot be observed until a few months from the date of surgery. The grafted hairs fall out 2 - 6 weeks following the operation, and this can be very demoralizing – as reported by many patients who are operated in top clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant. A few patients even experience shock loss that makes hair fall out as a result of injuries sustained by the scalp during the technique. However, the hair fall is only a short-term problem and hair tends to grow back fast.

The growth of new hair

You can find the new grafts beginning to grow in as less time as a couple of months. However, it occurs only in rare cases. Generally, grafts take about 6 to 12 months on an average to begin growing. At times, re-growth can take as long time as 18 months before they start appearing after the operation. This is the case even in patients who are treated in top hair loss treatment centres such as SHIFT Hair Transplant.

Soft hair growth

In 3 - 18 months following surgery, the transplanted hair strands begin to grow to a soft and fine form. The hairs get fuller, thicker and courser with time. In the early stages, the transplanted follicular units are found to grow a single hair. However, it turns to grow double or triple or as it was planted during the time of surgery.

Full growth

After about 12 – 18 months, you can find all that waiting worthwhile. As the grafted hairs start growing thicker, the final results can satisfy your expectations or even surpass them. Although you cannot see instant results after a hair transplant in Turkey, the final growth and results can be really rewarding and turn life-changing for you. You can face the world with more confidence.
