After hair transplantation, there are several processes that you should expect to go through as your scalp heals and new hair begins to grow. Here are some of the common steps in the process:
Immediately after the transplant: You'll be given instructions on how to care for your scalp in the days immediately following the procedure. This may include using a special shampoo, avoiding certain activities (such as exercise), and sleeping in a specific position.
Healing period: Your scalp will take some time to heal after the transplant. This may take a few weeks, during which time you may experience some mild pain or discomfort. Your doctor may prescribe medication to help manage this.
Shedding of transplanted hair: Within a few weeks of the transplant, the hair that was transplanted will begin to shed. This is a normal part of the process and does not mean that the procedure was unsuccessful.
New hair growth: After a few months, new hair should begin to grow from the transplanted follicles. It may take up to a year to see the full results of the transplant.
Follow-up appointments: You'll need to see your doctor for follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of the transplant and make any necessary adjustments.
