The regrowth of hair after hair transplantation is a process that starts as of sowing, progresses linearly at each stage and is completed in approximately 10-12 months. Although it is considered as a whole, it can be divided into two as the donor area and the transplanted area.
Hair Growth in Transplantation Areas After Hair Transplantation
After hair transplantation, hair growth in the transplanted area is a process that starts immediately after hair loss and shock loss and makes regular progress. While good results start to be observed in approximately the first 3-4 months, the rest of the process has an almost equal progress every month. Of course, this elongation period is not the same in all parts of the planting area. The growth rate varies from front to back, from the front hairline to the vertex region (also known as the crown region or crest region).
– Hair Growth in the Frontal Areas After Hair Transplantation
The front and middle parts are the areas where the results are first seen after hair transplantation and a beautiful appearance is achieved. Immediately after the shock loss, hair growth and thickening over time are observed in these areas.
– Hair Growth in the Vertex Area After Hair Transplantation
Immediately after hair transplantation and subsequent shock loss, hair growth in the Vertex (also called crown region or crown region) region is slower than in the anterior and upper regions. Therefore, the Vertex region follows the front and upper parts after sowing, and hair growth takes place a little later than those regions. The difference is not so big as to be noticeable, and only expert eyes can observe this difference in healthy plantings.
Hair Growth in the Donor Area After Hair Transplantation
Along with the transplanted hair, it takes some time for the donor area to recover. This is both the elongation that works to visually fill the spaces of the roots that have been taken, and the elongation that is meant in the recovery of the scabbing that can be experienced from time to time in the donor area after intensive removals. As a matter of fact, considering that there is not much restriction in the donor area compared to the transplant area, hair growth in this region is faster and takes much less time after hair transplant.
After the sensitive phase has passed both in the donor area and in the transplant area, and after the patient has been advised, it is essential that the patient who has the transplant massage the scalp abundantly and not avoid being harsh while washing, in order for the hair to grow healthier and faster after the hair transplant. This is a misleading and inaccurate idea that patients often get caught up in, even though they are reluctant to act harshly for this reason.
