Hair Transplant Timeline

After a hair transplant, the transplanted hair will grow initially from third day itself to 3 weeks. One can notice the growth of hair when scab is removed after head wash. Then hair from the graft largely shed within 3 weeks after treatment till 4-5 weeks.

One can see only reddish visible hairline with no hair at all. This time patient gets frustration and feels worried about his result as he cant see any of progress visible.

The transplanted follicles will go into some sort of 'sleep mode' after which the follicles temporarily do not produce hair.

This is absolutely normal and this phase is very different from person to person usually 3-4 months from date of hair transplant.

After 3-4 months one can notice baby hair growing from the scalp. At this phase only 30-40% of hair start to grow and rest hair still in sleeping mode.

Again patient is not happy as all hair is not growing. But growth phase is different for all hair till they come out finally due to different phases going on in donor area.

Till 5 -6 months all the baby hair start to grow from follicle. At this time only single hair from double / triple grafts are seen.

After 6 months the baby hair start to become thicker and thicker rapidly and start to look similar as existing hair on the scalp.

Its progress continues till 8 months.

After 8 months remaining hair from the double / triple grafts also start to erupt and desired density is achieved.

Till 12 months all grafts are fully grown and start to grow for longer period.

During all this timeline the patient feels following symptoms which is very normal - little pain in donor area , some pimples / boil in donor area , itching in transplanted as well donor area, dryness in transplanted skin , reddish / dark appearance of transplanted area.
