You may want to see the results immediately after having a hair transplantation. However, it may take some time for the hair follicles to fit and your hair to grow back.
Hair After a Hair Transplant Is Removed According to Two Factors
The results of hair transplantation and the appearance of new hair depend on two different factors. These factors are known as “hair growth” and “maturation”.
Hair growth is the event that the transplanted hair comes out of the hair series. Maturation, on the other hand, means that the resulting hair hairs thicken, darken and become natural.
When Does the Transplanted Hair Come Out?
After hair transplantation, the hair follicles enter a natural resting phase. 2-4 weeks after the procedure, the small hair on the follicles falls out, and no new hair growth is observed until the 3rd month, when the follicles wake up. Then the new follicles wake up, and by the 3rd month the hair hairs begin to come out.
Changes in your scalp are observed up to the 12th month, and sometimes up to the 18th month after the procedure. Therefore, hair transplantation is a process that is completed in at least 1 year.
How Does the Process of Growing Newly Planted Hair Take Place?
The emergence of newly planted hair usually occurs on the 3rd month. 50 percent of the hair by the 5th month, 9th. by the month, about 90-100 percent of the hair comes out of the scalp.
Maturation means that the planted hair darkens, thickens and normalizes. Between 3 and 5 months, the hair is very thin, transparent, short and weak when it first comes out of the scalp. This is called the “immature” look.
Approximately 40-50 percent of the result achieved in 6 months is considered “mature”. At this point, most people are happy with the result as they begin to see a real cosmetic benefit.
In 6 months, about 70 percent of the hair will come out of the scalp. By 8 months, the hair starts to look a little thicker. Then, between the 9th and 12th months, the hair enters the final maturation period.
For many patients, hair transplantation is a process completed in 12 months. 100 percent of the hair has grown from the scalp and all of this hair has become darker, thicker and normalized. However, the maturation process can vary from person to person.
All patients have a unique physiology. Therefore, it should be remembered that the appearance or growth of transplanted hair varies depending on individual factors.
