Hair growth timeline after hair transplantation

    Waiting long enough to get a transplant done is an exercise in patience. However, waiting for your crowning glory to be back is yet another challenge which has to be faced with patience and understanding.  We intend to introduce you to the timeline after the Hair Transplant procedure. If you are considering Hair Transplant in Visakhapatnam, you better visit Dr. VJs Cosmetic Surgery & Hair Transplantation Centre.

     

     

    Immediately after the surgery

    Right after the surgery, you will be able to see a new hairline on your scalp. You will also be able to predict the hair growth pattern. It might not be accurate in all the cases though. In any case, you will at least have a vague idea of what your new hair’s growth pattern is going to be like.

    The rest of the scalp is not very pleasing to look at. It will be red, irritable and full of scabs. The scabs will be there for some time. They will be washed away as the head becomes clear after clinical shampooing services. The service is given a day after the surgery.

    The fortnight after the surgery

    During the fortnight after the surgery, the patient will witness the shedding of the newly transplanted hair. We would like to clarify that this is a completely normal procedure and it does not mean that the surgery was unsuccessful. It is essential to know that the part of hair falling out is only the strand, not the root. The follicle is very much there and new hair will grow out from it in the future. The hair which will grow later will be much stronger and thicker than the ones which have been shed.

     

    Four months after the surgery

    After four months, the patient will witness worrisome phenomena-hair acne. It usually happens in nearly all cases. It arises due to the newly transplanted hair trying to grow. As it is weak, the follicular units fail to generate strong hair. Due to this fact, the hair is unable to protrude through the scalp. This causes acne in the scalp. In medical terms, it is called folliculitis. The condition creates quite a confusion in the patient as to what it is. It is confused with an infection a lot of times. The difference between the two conditions can be worked out in the following way-if it is an infection, it will get worse with time and feel painful. If it is just acne, it will fade away by itself after 10 days.

     

    8 months after the surgery

    The hair will start growing but it will be thin and brittle. It will also be in an unpigmented form.

     

    1 year after the surgery

    The patient will experience prominent hair growth accompanied by a good growth rate. Not many drastic changes can be expected after this stage.
