There are obviously some apprehensions in the minds of potential candidates of hair restoration. One of the common though is about when can one see the hair growth after the hair transplant surgery. It is an important query that deserves an in depth answer. Below we shall discuss the different phases a person goes through after the transplantation and how the hair growth comes about.
Immediate effects of the surgery
Immediately after the surgery the donor area will be bandaged and you will be told to rest. This is an important phase and you need to follow every instruction from the surgeon to the letter. Here are a few things that you should be prepared to face.
- You can expect some tightness in the scalp in some cases and this can last for a couple of weeks.
- Headaches too are fairly common and normal.
- You need to rest as much as possible once the surgery has been performed.
- You will be provided with medications for headaches as well as antibiotics to ensure that you do not catch an infection.
- You will need to avoid certain common things like massaging your scalp, exercising and doing any kind of strenuous activity for a few days.
- Be sure to not pick scabs that are formed on the scalp.
- You will be allowed to shampoo after a couple of days of the procedure in most cases.
Following these small yet significant steps will allow the very best of results from the hair restoration surgery.
It is a process in which the newly transplanted follicles will fall away. It starts after a few weeks of the hair transplantation. But don’t worry as it is a natural part of the process. Shedding allows new hair to grow out of the incisions that the doctor made during the surgery. The whole thing should be over within a few days.
Hair regrowth after hair transplant surgery
In most cases, new hair starts to appear within the first three months of the surgery. However, they are very small and will take time to grow out. You may experience slight itching during hair regrowth in some cases. If this happens, resist your urge to scratch the scalp since scrubbing and scratching can damage the hair follicles at this stage. Your surgeon may prescribe you some topical application for the itching issue.
Hair achieve normal length
Hair should reach normal length in twelve to eighteen months. This varies in individuals and for some, they may grow quicker. Once the hair grows to normal length, you can adopt any hairstyle of your choice. There is no restriction of how you can carry your appearance. Normal follicular hygiene should help the follicles remain healthy.
The appearance of the transplanted hair is quite natural and with time they will start looking totally normal. Since the hair growth process takes time, people will not feel odd looking at the hair growth you have had and will get used to it.
