Hair Transplants - Post Op Growth Timeline

You will scrutinise your results constantly, inspecting them every chance you get, and feel that you will always want more hair. Even at months five to seven patients are planning their second session, but my advice is WAIT and allow for the first session to reach its maximum potential at 18 months.

It doesn't matter how many times I say it to people, or write it, they still feel that their growth has stopped at month four, five, six, then come month 10, 11, 12 they say ‘Wow you were right... I did get more......’.:rolleyes:

Growth doesn't stop - it can take up to 18 months to reach the max potential from your HT, so why guys are convinced after five months their growth has stopped is just beyond me. If you have received your HT from one of the reputable clinics around today, then your growth will continue along with a great deal of maturing.

You the HT recipient will not see the growth just occur; it takes months for the realisation to kick in. It is important to take pictures at monthly intervals to clearly see the progression.

I’m going to reiterate this: 8 to 18 months is an important time frame when the growth becomes more noticeable. You will not get the full result from your HT until at least 12 to 18 months!

I think everyone needs to be made aware that even after a whole year there is still a great deal more in store, i.e. thickening and maturing and further development in general.
It’s important that you realise that HTs are a long-term commitment and you will always want to refine your hair and wish it were thicker/fuller/denser - this is the nature of hair.
