So you want to know how quickly you’ll be rockin’ your new do after a hair transplant? We live in a world of excess instant gratification, so it’s understandable that fast results are expected. With permanent hair restoration such as a Gro microsurgery hair transplantation procedure, you will have an instant ‘result’, however, there are several stages to go through before you will see the final result.

We’ll explain the different stages of growth to expect during your recovery plus you’ll see before and afters of hair transplant patients so you can see the results they achieved at different points in time. Remember, everyone is different.

Different Stages of Hair Transplant Recovery

Stage 1 – Euphoria

Day one and you’re feeling a bit euphoric because you have hair! You’ve had your procedure done and you’re over the moon that you’ve got hair where you didn’t have it before, you have a new hairline and you’ve added density to areas that were thinning. It’s an instant change to the way you look and feel and you couldn’t be happier.

Stage 2 – Sprouting

During the first couple of weeks your new hairs are growing, you can image just how awesome it’s going to be with your new hair. 



Stage 3 – The Ugly Duckling

After several weeks you may start to wonder about the ‘ugly ducking’ stage. It is normal for some hair to shed around 4-5 weeks after your hair transplant procedure. This happens to the vast majority of patients. Please note, the hairs shed, they don’t die. It is just part of the normal growth and regeneration phase that transplanted hair goes through. After the shedding phase, the follicles go back into the growth phase, and this is when it really gets exciting!

You can see in the pictures below that Marc experienced more shedding than Jonathan – everyone is different.



Stage 4 – The Real Growth Phase

Around three to four months after your procedure you may see the beginning of the result you’ve been anxiously waiting for. Your hair is getting longer, you may be considering various hair styles and you should be feeling great. You may be wondering when your hair is going to get thicker – at this point it’s just a waiting game.

Stage 5 – Thickening Up

From around four to five months onwards, you can really notice the new growth as your hair gets thicker and you can style your hair. Your hair will get more and more dense over the next 6 months until you get your final result.



Stage 6 – The Final Result

We say that the final result takes 12 months to achieve. Some people will achieve most of their final result by 6 months, many by 9-10 months and everyone by 12 months. It depends on your own individual hair growth cycle.
