FUE Transplant - Growth and Loss of Hairs. (Dr. Woods) (Hair Transplant)

posted by Dr. Woods Homepage E-mail, Australia, 19.08.2009, 07:06

Dr. Woods, sorry for veering off topic for just a moment but I've always
wanted to ask a HT surgeon some questions directly rather than hearing it
from third parties. I also think I would get straight forward and honest
answers from you without any agendas or BS as some surgeons throw out

1) At what point post-op can we "stop" expecting "new" hairs to
sprout/grow (Not Thicken!)? I get mixed reviews ranging from 5months to
11months post-op.

I know quite a few people in person that have empty spots post-op at 6
months and others at 10 months post op; relatively in the hairline regions.
The only answer they get is "wait until 12 months".

2) Is it normal for a patiant to lose transplanted hairs 6 months post
op? If so, are they guaranteed to grow back? And why does this loss occur?
It happened to someone on another forum, but his thred vanished and
most likely banned for mentioning his surgeon.

Thanks being a part of this forum! I hope most of us don't take it for

It is a bell curve, with the centre being approx 6 months when the majority of hair would have sprouted

Some people keep most of their hair, with no shedding, from day one, but they are the minority at the beginning thin wedge of the curve

Some people keep sprouting beyond 6 months, but as each month goes by, it is less likely

I don't think much will happen after 12 months, and certainly, the vast majority would have come through well before that.

If a transplanted hair is established, and then sheds at 6 months, it may be part of the cycle, but the majority will stay. They don't all shed at once

If that is the story, I doubt they were there in the first place , and someone was counting their chickens before they hatched, possibly because of wishfull thinking.
Possibly to please the doctor who requested some good press before anything actually happened

And that does happen
