I’m 6 months into my hair transplant and it seems to be getting thinner from about 2 months ago. I was under a great deal of stress a few months back. Could that cause a thinning of the newly transplanted hair. I use Rogaine and Avodart every day. The doctor said it was ok to use on the new hair. At the 4 month mark it really looked promising. However it has definitely thinned since then. Any suggestions on the cause?
Hair transplant surgery is highly variable in terms of the individual patient, as well as the techniques used by clinics and doctors. Many people who have a hair transplant will actually lose some of their original hair and that may be the cause of what you are seeing.
The general estimate is that it can take 4-8 months to see results, and usually the majority of the results are visible by the 8th-12th month. I’d follow up with the doctor that did your surgery.
