One month post operation, most of the hair implanted should have shed, therefore the re-cipient area should be looking almost like before the procedure.11STEP 11
Over the 1st and 2nd month after the procedure, a lot of patience is required as it is the phase that almost nothing or very little happens. It is on the 3rd month that you should start to experience visible growth and until the 7th month you will complete up to 60-80% of your final result.

Twelve months after the procedure you will have the final result of your hair transplan-tation. There are some cases of late growth but we do not expect a major enhance-ment of the result after one year is completed.
