When you leave the office after a hair transplant, you'll likely wear a cover-up of some sort to protect the new grafts. But, since the scalp is very vascular, the tissue starts to feed the follicle and healing begins immediately following hair grafts. A slight scab will form on the exterior of the scalp, and fall off after about a week. Then hair follicles go into a resting phase and - like all hair - transplanted hair grows relatively slowly. This is not necessarily a bad thing since you'll want the fact that you had a transplant to be undetectable. A normal rate of hair growth is about half an inch per month. At about three months, transplanted hair begins to grow and will grow at the rate your hair normally does. In about 10 to 12 months, you'll feel like the results of hair transplant surgery are complete. This transplanted hair will grow forever without any special additional treatment. Have you ever seen commercials with men who have had hair restoration treatment swimming and washing their hair? That's because, after successful hair transplant surgery, you won't need to worry about getting your head wet and seeing more hair loss in the drain or on your beach towel. Since donor hair for hair transplantation is 'borrowed' from areas of your head that are not bald or receding, this hair will keep growing just as that hair does, not as the previous hair you lost along your hairline or on the crown of your head. In this way, quality hair replacement surgery offers you permanent results!
