Default 4 months...1693 in the crown, Dr. Glenn Charles..

Is it normal that it seems like some of the grafts have kicked into overdrive and some have not seemed to even wake up? Nonetheless, feeling positive about the next few months, can't wait for it to thicken up. Got a haircut yesterday, and my stylist even noticed how good its coming in.

Yes, grafts can grow at varying rates.

Grafts usually to not start to grow still about 12weeks post-op. If you are starting to see a good difference already at 4 months you are ahead of the game. Most patients to not start to see a considerable difference till around the 6 month mark. It is going to continue to improve over the next 8-14 months. Be patient over the next couple months you are going to see more and more hairs start to grow.

While the crown usually responds to meds faster than the rest of the scalp, it responds the slowest during a hair transplant. You are looking great for 4 months.

You also had Dr. Charles, whom I consider one of the best. You have nothing to worry about!
