When To Expect Hair Growth After Hair Transplant?

by Andrew Martin Health Consultant

Hair follicles undergo four stages of growth cycle: anagen, catagen, telogen and exogen. Every hair follicle can be at different stage of growth phase and follows the complete cycle of hair growth from maturation to shedding. Shedding of hair follicle is normal phenomena but it is a point of concern that how much hair fall is normal. 50-100 hair shafts shedding routinely are considered normal and losing hairs more than this could be alarming signs of hair loss which one should consider seriously.

In earlier times hair loss was a sign of ageing but now altering trend of lifestyle, stress and increasing pollution acts as hand in glove component in facilitating influence of genetic hair loss. As with increasing incidence of hair loss in younger population, the consequences of hair loss are more dreadful in terms of psychological impact. In the present generation where personality management is crucial in every aspect socially and professionally, hair loss could lead to losing one’s confidence and self esteem. Hence, people looks for fast and permanent solution for hair loss so not to lag behind in this fast and furious world.

What happens to newly planted hair follicles after transplantation?

After hair transplant procedure, newly planted hair follicle undergoes hair growth cycle similar to natural hair follicles which includes: anagen, catagen, telogen and exogen. Every hair follicle follows its own course and lies at different stage of hair growth cycle. Based on the stage, the transplanted hair follicles depict growth and undergoes shedding, rest and growth. Hence, each hair follicle grows at different time and varies from individual to individual. The following timeline of growth of hair follicle after hair transplant are as follows:

During Week 1: For achieving the best possible results patient had to follow strict post operative instructions  prescribed by the hair transplant surgeon. There are mild complications which are short term including swelling, pain, redness, itching and numbness. These temporary complications could be easily sorted by the instructions provided by the surgeon. There is formation of flakes or scabs around the transplanted hair follicles which disappear in around 10 days post procedure.

Week 2-3: This is also termed as shock phase when you will be surly shocked that your transplanted hairs are shedding and you might feel that your hair transplant is a failure. But not to worry, this is a general sequel of transplanted hair follicles which loses its shaft and prepares the follicle to undergo growth and prepare newer hair shaft.

Month 1 to 2:  This is the duration after hair transplant when the hair follicles undergoes rest phase and does not show any growth or visible change on the scalp. This is usually a disappointment period for the patients when they are eagerly waiting for the hairs to appear on their bald heads. Patient scalp looks similar as was previously before the procedure.

Month 2 to 4: This is often a happy period for patients as they see new hair shafts visible on the scalp which brings a ray of hope for fuller growth. But the growth you see is very disproportionate as each hair follicle follows its own course of growth and some appears sooner and some latter.

Month 6: Since month 3 the hair growth progresses and follows the similar pattern as natural hair.

 Month 6-9: A large amount of bald area is covered with the hair growth and donor area also is healed completely. Hair shafts also undergo textural changes and become thick.

1 year:  The complete hair growth could be appreciated at the end of a year when you can confirm the results of your hair transplant and judge its success. Bald area looks fuller and hairline and temporal triangles are built according to design opted.

Surely you need to wait for an ample time to observe growth following hair transplant but if you have opted for right surgeon and right clinic this period is worth waiting for.
