In the first 3 months following surgery, some of the transplanted hair follicles might fall out.
The rate of fall is around 20-30 %. The transplanted follicles grow hair after the 3rd month and the hair growth continues until the 8th-9th months post-surgery. It usually takes one year for the hair to totally grow, and look like natural hair.
If the patient plans to have a second transplantation session, it is best to have it after the first year when one starts observing the best results. If you want to have a quick solution then 8-9 months’ post-surgery is also suitable, and then in the following times the third transplantation is suitable.
