6 months after FUE - not much difference to hair

Recommended Posts

After 6 months, and a successful 1500 FUE performed by a reputable doctor, I am seeing very little difference to my hairline. The great hairline and density that was created during the procedure went during the shock phase - and now I'm more or less back to the way it was before.

The transplanted hair came from the back of my head, where it is darker, but the front section of my hair is grey/fair so it is clear to me from just looking at the colour whether it's a transplanted hair or not.

 

No explosive growth, nothing; just left feeling more than a little depressed and disappointed, wondering why I was so insane as to take out such a big load for absolutely no benefit. I simply can't justify spending any more money, when the results, so far, are just so very poor.

6 months is not long enough. Some people bloom later. Pictures would help but you need to keep the faith.

 

Only at the 12 month mark can you make a yield call. Hang in there brother.

 

I was the same for a FUT 1500 procedure.

I agree, from what I have seen many people do not grow it before that point, some after, and your full result can bloom probably after the 12 month mark. So, hang in there. I am going to go for a transplant later on as well and I know the wait sucks but the end result is probably worth it. I am still without hairs and I got a year till I get a transplant then another 6 months or more after that to see the results.

 

Don't let it get to you right now. Just do what you have to do, eat right, get sleep, take the meds you need to if you do, and DONT WORRY. Worrying causes stress and you know stress can cause hair trouble. Relax and good luck.
