First Two Weeks
Scabs from the extraction sites will begin falling away by the end of the first week. Although your scalp will be somewhat red and tender at first, this should fade rapidly during the initial phase of your hair transplant recovery.
Up To Four Months
Everyone is in agreement on this one: The first four months is the most challenging phase of hair transplant recovery. It is normal to experience some significant hair shedding at the treatment area.
Although this is a good sign that the hair follicles are responding, it can also be alarming to the person going through it, as they may now be in a worse situation than before the transplant. Rest assured that some initial shedding is completely normal and expected. Your hair follicles will be going into a dormant phase before reemerging and growing new hair.
Most hair transplant recipients find that their hairline begins growing hair before the crown area picks up the pace.
Four to Six Months
You will be happy to know that this phase of your hair transplant recovery is when your hair begins growing again, although it may be somewhat fine at first. Since individual hair follicles will be in a different growth phase at any given time, your growth may be somewhat patchy at first.
The hairs that initially grow fine will eventually become thicker hairs, as your hair density becomes increasingly apparent.
Eight to Twelve Months
During this phase of your hair transplant recovery, the transplanted hairs will begin maturing. What began as fine growth becomes thicker growth, and most of the eventual results of your hair transplant procedure will now be evident.
Twelve Months and Beyond
Although most of your results have become evident by now, you should still see some continued improvement at the one-year mark and beyond. By 24 months after your hair transplant in Fort Worth, your final results will be evident.
