i had FUT 23 days ago and my doctor told me that the transplanted hair will fall out in two weeks, then start to grow again. The transplanted hair didn’t fall out up until now and the hair covers the bald area and i feel that it is slightly longer. is this is a good sign and means complete success of surgery? or does it mean nothing? thanks for your time and patience and hoping to answer me back.
If it continues to grow, you will be like 5% of people who never lose the hair after a transplant. You won’t know for another few weeks and it is not unusual that the hair appears to be growing as it is being pushed out of the skin. The hair length below the skin varies with race, but for a Caucasian, the length is between 5-6 mm, for an Asian it is often longer by a mm or so. I hope that you join the ranks of the 5% who keep on growing. Drop me a line and let me know and I will post your comment here on the blog linked to this post.
