Hair transplant after 6 months: the first results
Hair transplant results are a relatively long process. The results are not visible right after the surgery, the scalp needs to heal and the grafts to set in. As the grafted hair follow the natural hair growth cycle, they enter a rest phase, known as the telogen phase, a month after the surgery. It leads to the fall of the grafted hair. They grow back two to three months later.
Six months after the hair transplant, the first results are visible. The grafted hair has grown back enough to be visible, and they are melting into the rest of the hair. The final results will not be visible until at least one year after the transplantation. So, if the results are not perfect after six months, it is normal, and they will not be permanent. Usually, hair continues to thicken from six months to nine months after the transplant.
At this point, the hair grows from one to two centimeters per month.
