What Do You Expect With hair transplant growth after 6 months?
You can see significant hair transplant growth after 6 months and partially appreciate it. At this stage you should have been fully recovered from any post-procedure pain and issues. In other hands, you may get more curious about the progress and pay more attention to the details. Here what happen with hair transplant growth after 6 months progress
In common cases, hair transplant growth after 6 months is significant. The transplanted hair develops its length and thickness so you can have an initial view of the density would be. However, it’s too early to conclude since some people will see the transplanted area aren’t dense enough until they reach 10th month. In fact, the full growth can be observed in a year after the surgery.
Graft Progress Rate
Actually the transplanted hair has been growing since third month but it’s still less observable. However, you can see 80% transplanted hair are growing hair passing the surface. Why isn’t progress rate 100% ? it’s because the grafts possess different cycle of hair growth and it’s uncontrollable. Most the grafts are entering the resting phase (telogen) before three months due to the procedure. After that they’ll enter the growing phase (anagen) but not all them in the same frequency. In six months, 20% of them may still remain in the telogen phase.
Grow Rate (Length)
Before three months, the growth of transplanted grafts is deinfitely slow and hard to observe. However, the rate of hair transplant growth after 6 months will significantly increase up to 0.5 inch per month. Again, the length of each hair wouldn’t be the same due to random growth circle. But they do experience the same grow rate within six months.
Whole Progress Rate
In the hair transplant growth after 6 months progress, you can expect more hair growth than the three months. However don’t expect final density since not all of the transplanted follicles are growing hair at this stage. In fact, some people even have just experience initial hair transplant growth after 6 months progress. That’s why you’ll have to wait for another 6 months to appreciate the full growth. The whole progress rate would be 50%.
It’s way too early for evaluating your hair transplant growth after 6 months due to incomplete progresses in many aspects. Just be patience for waiting the final result within a year. You can take the documentation to record the monthly progress. Consult the progress to your surgeon and pay attention to what you should and shouldn’t do during the post-procedure.
