How much time usually it takes for 2nd, 3rd hair in a graft to grow


Recommended Posts

I had 4th hair transplant of 1984 grafts implanted, almost 6 months ago. This is my 3rd FUT and second hair transplant with Dr Diep. Grafts were implanted on mid scalp and crown. Hair were transplanted on a wider area. Results are far from spectacular. But I have seen single hair grafts around 40% has grown to  about 1 inch. I have not yet observed 2 hair grafts growing. I checked my photos taken after transplant, I see majority of them were single hair grafts. But 20% of them were 2 hair grafts. Not sure if there were any 3/4 hair grafts planted.

My question is how long will it take for 2nd or 3rd hair in a graft to grow.

Do you have any current pics to compare with this post-op pic?

Ok my friend…if 80 percent were single hair grafts, and considering the large surface area, it’s going to be difficult to attain good visual coverage…you should ask your surgeon for the graft breakdown as to how many 3 hair grafts were placed…also, most of the hair follicles start growing new hair at the 3-4 month post-op point.
