Patients who visit our Manhattan, NYC, practice (with offices throughout greater NYC) can expect their results from a hair transplant procedure to take about 10-12 months to reach what would be considered a cosmetically mature appearance.
A Rewarding Process
Once the grafts are moved to their new location and the healing period has subsided (about 10 days), what remains are very tiny hair shafts or stubble in the area that was treated. This provides somewhat of a preview of your results but it is a temporary stage as the follicles shed their hairs and go into a dormant phase. This usually happens within several weeks of the procedure. In some cases, the follicles may not shed their hairs but a high percentage will.
Once the follicles have acclimated to their new environment, receiving blood supply and nutrients, the newly transplanted hairs will begin to emerge. This often happens between two to five months. Often the grafts are staggered in their development so it can take five to seven months to enjoy an improved cosmetic change. Again, by about one year post-op, the transplanted hair is of styling length and optimal caliber.
