A complete guide for hair re-growth after a Hair transplant?

A complete guide for hair re-growth after a Hair transplant- Hair re-growth post-hair transplant is constantly subjected to the graft health of the implants and
the amount of shock or trauma the grafts have undergone during the transfer from the donor
area to the recipient area. Bearing in mind that everyone is different and that you can’t predict
anyone’s outcome with 100% certainty, here is what you should expect:

A complete guide for hair re-growth after a Hair transplant

First 7-10 Days: Recovery

Your physical recovery will take place. You will get detailed instructions on DO and DONTs. By
the end of the week, the scabs from your extraction punctures will begin to fall off. The hair in
the donor area will grow nicely. Our Hair Doctor team will check back with you frequently
during this time to make sure everything is going as planned.

0-3 Months: Shedding or “Dormant Shock” Phase

This is the hardest part of having a hair transplant. Not only does your new hair not grow in the
first 3 months, but it will also actually fall out. Anywhere from 4-5 days to 3 weeks after the procedure,
your transplanted follicles will shed. If you are a Hair Doctor patient, this will be no cause for
panic, because we will have prepared you for it.
Depending on the area, you can expect dormant shock to last longer or shorter. The crown
typically stays in dormant shock the longest, whereas the hairline tends to grow at first. If you’ve
had a restoration done to your hairline, it’s not unusual to see it grow in nicely within just 2
months of your procedure.

3-4 Months: Slow-Growth Phase

This is when it gets exciting. Right around the beginning of Month 4, your hair will finally start
growing. At first, it may come in thin and curly. Your transplant areas might look patchy at this
stage, as different follicles will still be at different growth stages in their cycle. Again, if you
didn’t expect this, you might be alarmed at such wiry-looking hair. Knowing what to expect
makes all the difference.

4-6 Months: Real Growth Phase

This is the most exciting stage for most patients. You can expect to see fast growth from the
fourth month onwards. Your hair will fill in nicely and you will see a big difference from before. At
the end of this phase, we check in with our patients again. It’s a happy day, as many are
incredulous to see their new photos compared to before.

6-12 Months: “Hair Busting” and Maturity

Amazingly, these great results generally make up only 50% of the expected hair growth, with full
growth complete at the 1-year mark or up to 15 months. What happens in this stage is more
subtle. Your hair will grow thicker, with the transplanted hair finally growing at the rate of
normal hair, 1-2 cm per month. (See results)

As you can see, you need about 4 months of patience to see any meaningful results from your
hair transplant and give or take 6 months for those results to look good. We hope that we have
helped you understand exactly what to expect from a hair transplant. We at Looks studio know
we have an excellent team that consistently delivers excellent results. But we also know that
setting the wrong expectations can doom any effort. This is why client education is so important
to us, and why the highest praise a reviewer can give us is “it went exactly as expected.” Hence
Bio-Integrated FUE delivers impeccable results with proper expectation alignments.
