What Can Cause Poor Growth Following an FUE Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplant Results

After 9 months, most hair transplant patients should have a pretty good idea of how the hair transplant results will be. However, with some patients, it may take up to 18 months before full results are seen.

The common timeline for most patients is as follows:

  • 2 weeks to 4 weeks – A patient will experience shedding of the transplanted hairs.
  • 3 to 4 months – New growth will just start to be visible in the transplanted areas.
  • 6 to 9 months – This is when most patients will experience the most noticeable growth.
  • 1 year – Most FUE hair transplant patients can expect to see the end results of their procedure by this point.

The Patient Factor

For some patients, the timeline after their hair transplant may not be what they are experiencing. Therefore, they may start to worry that the transplant has not been effective on them. The good news is that it is highly unlikely that an FUE hair transplant patient will not have any results from their procedure, but in the unlikely case that a patient does not experience the expected results, it is important to look at all of the possible reasons why.

The patient is the only person who is responsible for the post-op care following a hair transplant. This is also one of the most important steps to ensure a great result. It is very important that patients follow all post-op care instructions and the advice of the doctor. If you do have any concerns, it is necessary for the doctor to be advised right away. Smoking will also affect the results of an FUE hair transplant. Many things can hurt the outcome of a hair transplant. Therefore, it is very important that you have a good dialogue with your doctor following the hair transplant.

The Doctor Factor

Choosing the right doctor is probably the most important step for anyone considering an FUE hair transplant. It is very important that the grafts are harvested, handled, and implanted in the proper way and by an experienced and trained team of hair specialists under the delegation of a talented hair transplant doctor so that the results look natural and effective.

The Scalp Factor

This will also play a big part in the ultimate success of an FUE hair transplant. Some patients have scalps that do not produce a great result with the transplanted grafts. This can be caused by many things. Excessive bleeding from the scalp may cause the grafts to pop out and never get firmly planted or grow. If an infection occurs in the scalp, it can also kill the grafts. It is important that all of the possible issues with the scalp are taken into consideration and the proper precautions are taken. It is sometimes necessary to have a scalp biopsy to try and discover the cause of poor hair growth in an area. It is important that you choose the right hair transplant specialist before proceeding with your FUE hair transplant. You can be confident with your decision to choose the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic.
