Although the hair transplant timeline is considered a process that varies from patient to patient, it usually spans 6-12 months. The recovery process and care after hair transplant treatment are very critical. Your specialist will inform you in detail about before and after the treatment.
We want to share our experiences with you based on the hair transplant treatments we have applied at WestModern Clinic. With the hair transplant growth chart, you can see the success of the treatment and the growth phase of the hair after the treatment.
Hair Transplant Timeline Month by Month
Hair transplant timeline pictures available on the internet can give you more or less information about the treatment process. However, such cosmetic surgery procedures may differ from person to person. Nevertheless, reaching a general opinion about the treatment and measuring its success rate is possible. Hair transplant treatment has a 95% success rate in preventing hair loss.
While giving information about the hair transplant timeline, we wanted to start with patient experiences in our clinic. Thanks to the patient experiences of our physicians, who are experts in this treatment, we can learn exactly how the process works.
1- Hair Transplant Timeline: Before the Procedure
When it comes to the timeline of the treatment, it will be necessary to look at the process before the operation. It is essential for our patients who come to our clinic to have information about the following issues before the treatment is applied:
- Smoking and alcohol consumption should be stopped at least one week before starting the treatment.
- Before the hair transplant operation, it is crucial to inform your specialist about your chronic diseases, if any.
- We need to undergo a preliminary examination process for our patients who apply to our clinic for treatment. According to the examination results, we can decide which technique to use for hair transplant treatment.
- Our patients should also be informed about the complications that may occur after the treatment. For example, in the first three days after the operation, edema, bleeding and pain are seen.
2- After the First Week of the Hair Transplant
The first week after the hair transplant operation is critical. First, the first hair wash after the process must be done in a clinical setting. It is normal to encounter conditions such as edema, itching and slight bleeding during the first three days. Again, the transplanted grafts will begin to settle fully on the scalp in the first week. This can cause sudden hair loss. This is a normal situation seen after the transplant operation.
3- Hair Transplant Timeline: 1-3 Months
Hair loss will be extreme in the first months after the operation. However, this is a normal process and there is no need to get discouraged. In the second month, hair loss begins to decrease and new hair can be observed to grow. During the first three months, the rate of hair growth is irregular. It is impossible to achieve a natural appearance on the scalp during these periods.
It is also natural for crusting to occur on the scalp in the first trimester. Your specialist may recommend some medicines to you in order to remove the crusting.
4- Hair Transplant Timeline: 4-6 Months
Between the first 4-6 months after the operation, it can be observed that the hair begins to grow. However, the hair strands that emerged during these periods are thin and fragile. During this period, you can comb and shape your hair. However, you should prefer warm water instead of using very cold or boiling water when washing your hair.
Six months after the operation, if you wish, you can come to the WestModern Clinic and have a post-operative check-up.
5- Hair Transplant 9-12 Months
The hair transplant timeline usually ends after one year. In order to achieve the full results of the operation, a period of 9-12 months must pass. At the end of 12 months, your transplanted hair will no longer be any different from your real hair. Since hair transplant treatment is applied directly to your hair follicles, obtaining a 100% natural appearance is possible.
You can get the opportunity to have hair transplant treatment from specialist physicians within the WestModern Clinic. Thus, you can benefit from affordable price opportunities for your treatment and receive a quality health service.
