Once hair graft is completed following the FUE technique, the results are not immediate. For the final result to be appreciated, it takes about a year. During that period, you have to be patient and to go to the regular medical check-ups agreed with the center.
Since it is not possible to immediately observe how our hair will look and, therefore, our new image with hair, it is important that all people who are going to undergo a hair graft in Turkey know the process by which they will get hair growth, month by month.
Results of hair transplant, month by month
During the first month it is possible for many patients to see how the recipient area swells up. These symptoms usually appear after 72 hours and will remit completely before the end of the first week after the intervention. It is also likely that small blood clots may appear in the areas, where the incisions have been made. They will disappear after the first week.
However, it will be necessary to have more patience with the reddened areas when they become visible, since they can remain for a few weeks, being usual that they disappear around the third week. It is necessary not to be scared to see a hair fall during the shock loss phase, since it is a normal process before the new, healthy and definitive hair follicles appear on the scalp.
It will be between the second and the third month that we can see new hair. These will be fine and will gradually thicken. During this phase it is possible to see an outbreak of acne that will diminish later. If this problem remains for several weeks without remitting or in the case that it goes further, we have to contact the medical team so that they can help us to soothe it.
Starting from the sixth month, when new hair exceeds five centimeters and shows an acceptable medium thickness, it appears what ends up being the final result of hair graft intervention in Turkey. Now bald spots have disappeared and it is just a question of waiting for the new thin hair thickening.
From the eighth month, hair, longer and thicker, will look very much like the one we will have after a year. Since that point our hair will be shine as it will continue to be later. The grown hair will be strong and healthy, so, finally, we will be able to look in the mirror with pleasure and recover the image we longed for and that led us to Turkey twelve months ago.
As you can see, it is a long, one-year process that demands maximum care during the whole period from the intervention to that year when we can forget that we underwent a hair graft in Turkey. The results are lifelong so it will be worth the wait.
