  • 1. Hair Transplant Timeline:The Road to RecoveryWe all want to know if a certain action to a problem is the best choice. Andwhen it comes to finding a remedy to hair loss, hair transplant technique is oftenconsidered to be one of the dependable solutions. Since it is an invasive and avery delicate procedure, most people are apprehensive and also curious on howthe results would come about. So to answer all the questions, I will take youthrough a rough hair transplant timeline of recovery comes about. The First Few Hours to the First Day after Surgery You may feel a little fuzzy at this time due to the after effects of anesthesia, which is why you would need assistance when going home or in doing things around the house at this time. You may also start to feel some pain or discomfort as anesthesia starts to wane. But you will already be prescribed with an analgesic to relieve it. The First Week Around this time you will experience mild swelling particularly in the forehead area which is gradually at the end of the week. You can reduce this problem by lightly applying a cold compress. The grafts are slowly becoming secured in place at this time. Crusts and scabs may form around this time both on the donor and recipient sites, but you should still take extra care not to scratch it because the chances that you might dislodge it are still high. The redness which can be observed after surgery and even a few days after will slowly start to disappear as the week ends. You can already resume normal activities around this time, although you should avoid strenuous exercises and contact sports. Call us: 1300 733 092
  • 2. Two Weeks to Two MonthsThis time of recovery can be considered to be the trickiest because this is whenyour hair shedding takes place. This should not be a cause for concern becausethis is only normal and it is caused a shock loss. This is the dormant phase thatyour new hair implants goes through on the process to recovery. Three to Four Months You can consider this time period to be the “spring” of your recovery process because you will now start to see some hair growth pushing through. Although the start of hair growth varies for every patient, but three months is the usual time that hair growth starts to show. The hairs will be very fine and thin at first but it will gradually thicken in texture overtime. Five to Six Months This time around you might be pleased to see that your hair has grown at a considerable length, at least 2-3 inches. This will already show a marked improvement and the hair follicles also begin to thicken at this point. Eight Months to a Year At 8 months you can see that the hair transplant results have greatly improved; the hair thickens and with better density. But in a year’s time the hair will have grown to a length where you can already style your hair the way you want it and have your first haircut as well. Call us: 1300 733 092
