I am in week 7 after my HT and I am seeing plenty of fine new hairs in the left frontal area sprouting up while the right side shows not even a third of that growth. I realize that the transplanted hairs grow at different rates but the difference is too great to ignore. Another cause for concern is that the right side was also the first to shed (I noticed it as early as 10 days after the procedure) so I would assume it would have a ‘head start’ over the other side.
I know that growth usually starts after 2 to 4 months but it still leaves the burning question: why has one area started to show this kind of growth and not the other? My worst fear is that many of the grafts placed in the right area were somehow inferior or died off. I have voiced this to my surgeon, who is very respected and well known, and he tells me to just wait for the full effect after 11 months. I just wanted to hear your opinion. Thank you
I frequently see different start rates on graft growth from different areas. I don’t have an exact answer for why one side grew faster for you. Assuming that the team members that placed your grafts were highly skilled, the only thing I can suggest is to follow your surgeon’s advice and wait it out.
