How long does it take transplanted hair to grow?
Before the hair from transplanted follicles begins to regrow, the hair that comes with the follicle will fall out and the patient should look almost as they did before the procedure for about three months. Typically three to four months after their procedure, the patient may start noticing very fine new hairs coming through the scalp. Over a period of three to six months, they will become a bit stronger. At six to nine months, the hairs will continue to grow a bit faster and typically even a bit thicker and by twelve months the patient should have significant results. Of course, every patient responds a bit differently to a procedure. Some notice results sooner and for some patients it may take a bit longer.
