Hair transplant is a procedure in which the hair follicles are extracted from the permanent zone of your scalp or from your body hair like beard and transplanted into the bald area. You either undertake FUE or FUT procedure for this. FUE method is the most recent and advanced method, where individual follicles are harvested instead of the strip after the hair transplant.
The surviving grafts continue to grow in first two to three weeks but after that, some hair fall starts. It is called shock loss, due to the stress or the shock these hair follicles receive due to the hair transplant procedure.
Considering that the hair roots as stem cells are accepted in the donor area only, the hair shaft is lost and it starts re-growth in two to three months. After 3 months continuous hair growth takes place. By the end of five to six months you get appreciable results as around fifty to sixty percent hair follicles start their growth and achieve a have hundred percent growth in the transplanted hair.
It takes around nine to twelve months to completely grow, so final results of hair transplant are only seen after one year.
