– Follow instructions carefully to avoid loss of grafts.

– Growth will not be as thick as you or I would want. The top of your head originally had between 30,000-50,000 hair before it began to lose hair. Typically, even with multiple procedures, we only move 12,000-18,000 hair.

– Growth will not occur as fast as you would like, in fact, you will probably see no growth before 4 months.  Be patient.  It takes most people at least 4-6 months to begin seeing the positive change and 12 months to see the full benefit.

– In some cases, your hair may actually look a little thinner after the transplant. This is more likely to occur when pre-existent hairs are present in the transplanted zone. These hairs may thin out in the 3 months after transplantation, but will usually grow back about the same time and rate that the grafts grow in.  Do not worry if you look thinner at 3 months after transplantation-your rewards come at 6-12 months.

– You will not get the maximum benefit from your transplant until 9-12 months after the procedure because the hair must have this amount of time to re-grow length and thickness of shaft.  You will see improvement at 4-6 months in the form of fine hair but results peak out at 9-12 months.

– Hair loss is a relentlessly progressive process, therefore you likely will want additional replacement procedures in the future to thicken or cover new areas of loss. This is also the reason we strongly recommend the use of Propecia and Rogaine to help prevent this progression.

– We are always available to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. Don’t be hesitant to call. To us you are the most important person in the world; you are our patient.
