The hardest part of hair transplantation is waiting for the hair to grow. The hair transplanted today will not begin to grow until 3–4 months after the procedure. Before this time, small scabs will form around the grafts. These scabs will fall off in 7–10 days along with the shaft of the hair. This is normal; do not panic. The root remains behind. The new hair shaft will continue to grow underneath the skin, reaching the surface in 3–4 months. By around 10 months the hair will mature and add density to the areas. It will take 10 months to actually see the result of surgery since the hair grows at an average rate of 1.5 cm per month.
