Will people ever come to know I had a hair transplant?
Immediately, following hair transplant surgery, a patient’s recipient (bald) area is typically pink with scabs forming around the micro incisions. These hundreds of tiny incisions will heal rapidly within a week to ten days.
During the first few days after the surgery, a person’s hair transplants will be noticeable if there is no previous hair (bald area) to mask these temporary scabs. However, most patients feel comfortable being in public without wearing a hat within 5 to 7 days following surgery.
Once the transplanted hair grows out the results look entirely natural, even under close examination.
When will my newly transplanted hair start to grow?
Usually, it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. The transplanted hair grows in very thin at the start and gradually grows thicker and fuller over time. After one year a patient’s transplanted hair will be fully mature and will continue to grow for a lifetime.
Will the results look completely natural?
When done right, hair transplantation is so natural that even a hairstylist cannot detect that a person has done hair transplantation.
The days of the “corn row” or “Barbie doll” hair transplants are long gone.
To achieve such truly natural results requires a dedicated and highly skilled staff doing a state of the art hair transplant procedure. The state of the art micro hair transplant procedure that our member physicians perform is called “follicular unit hair transplantation”.
