Evolution of a Hair Graft month by month

How much hair grows month by month after a hair transplant? This is one of the most frequent questions our patients ask us, as they are eager to see results as soon as possible. We show you the evolution of a before and after hair transplant through images.

First week post hair transplant

As can be seen in the images, the first week after the hair graft, the area is slightly swollen. This happens during the first three days, and is a completely normal effect. This inflammation caused by the hair grafting can last until the sixth or seventh day.

During this first week, small blood clots can also be seen, these are the points where the follicle has been incised and will disappear between the fifth and seventh day.

Second week after hair transplantation

Two weeks after the hair transplant operation, the swelling will have completely disappeared. The follicles of the grafted hair will begin to create a slight crust at the points where the incisions have been made. It is important that only the fingertips are used to wash the treated area until 21 days after the hair transplant operation.

First month after hair transplant

During the first month of the hair transplantationAfter the third week, you can see that the operated area is slightly reddened, this can last for several weeks. From the third week onwards, the patient will start to lose the transplanted follicles. This is completely normal, and is part of the telogen phase (third phase of the hair growth cycle) after a hair transplant.

How long does it take for transplanted hair to grow?

During the second month after the hair transplant surgery in TurkeyThe patient's real hair growth will begin to be seen (one month after losing the transplanted follicles). The grafted hairs that will start to grow will be very short, but will significantly improve the appearance of the implant.

Hair implant stage between 3 and 4 months

Within the next three to four months after the hair transplantationThe patient will be able to appreciate the appearance of "new" hairs that will increase the perception of the volume of their hair. This growth period may vary depending on the characteristics of each patient.

The hairs that appear during this period in patients who have undergone a hair grafting in TurkeyThe hairs are usually fine at the beginning, but become thicker and stronger over time. Other important effects that can appear during this process are acne or small pimples in the recipient area. Again, this is completely normal, and is a positive indicator that new hair is being generated (above all it is important not to touch or explode these pimples caused by the hair transplant, they are quick to heal).

Evolution of the hair graft, phases from 5 to 6 months

During the fifth month after the hair graft, the patient will begin to notice a "rebound" in their hair growth. This phase will be characterised by an increase in hair length (between 5 and 7 centimetres) and an improvement in volume. Between these months, patients may notice that their hair roots become thicker and thicker.

From the eighth to the tenth month, patients who have undergone a hair transplantation in Turkey will be able to observe a further increase in their hair growth. The hair will already be much longer and stronger (thicker). The result that patients will observe in this phase is practically the definitive aspect that their hair will have.

Final stage of hair grafting, 12 months later

One year after the realisation of the hair transplant in Turkeypatients will be able to observe the final result of the intervention and see how satisfactorily their hair grows back with strength.

The hair you will have will be hard and firm, with a 100% natural look, respecting the shape of each person's scalp and enhancing it to achieve the desired result. At this stage, the hair can be washed, cut and styled as each patient wishes.

Frequently asked questions

Do I have to remain hospitalized after the hair transplant?
Hospitalization is not necessary. The treatment lasts several hours but it is not compulsory for the patient to spend the night in hospital. Afterwards, post-intervention observations and treatments will be carried out, so that we can corroborate the state of the scalp, if the implantation has been completely correct, etc.

When is the final result after a hair transplant visible?
After 1 week, maximum 10 days we will start to see how the first hairs start to grow.

Can I cut my hair after a graft?
It is not advisable to cut your hair (with scissors) until at least one month after the operation. Once this stage has passed, you can cut, wash and style your hair as you wish.

For the use of hair clippers, a reasonable time of one year is recommended for the recipient area and six months for the donor area.

What is a donor area?
The donor area is the area from which we extract the hair follicles. It is usually the nape of the neck, although sometimes we also take hair from the parietal area.

Are hair implants temporary or permanent?
Our doctor estimates that almost 100% of the transplanted follicles can survive once the procedure is completed. This percentage is guaranteed by professional clinics specialized in the treatment and with years of experience.
