The FUE results timeline will be one of the things you are most interested in if you are considering a hair transplant. FUE is also known as Follicular Unit Extraction and refers to a type of hair transplant process. FUE has received a lot of media attention, which has only increased since ex-Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney had this procedure. FUE is the preferred choice of celebs for a reason, though, and that’s because it promises the best rate of success. Here at Longevita, we have vast experience in this procedure, providing safe and successful results. Below, we will explain the FUE recovery process, as well as giving you an understanding regarding the results you can expect, and when you can expect them. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
How long is the recovery process?
Before results comes recovery. Of course, when it comes to the healing process, everybody is different. However, the maximum time you will need for recovery after FUE is a week. In fact, some people note that the redness and any soreness is gone within a matter of a few days.
When will transplanted hair grow?
With most FUE procedures, the transplanted hair will go dormant for around two to four weeks after the procedure, staying dormant for roughly three months post-op. There are some patients, however, that have skipped the dormant period altogether, experiencing hair growth immediately after the transplant procedure. When the new hair starts to grow, the texture will be fine, and you can expect around half an inch of hair growth per month. Once you reach the six-month post op mark, you can expect one and a half inches of hair growth per month. Usually, after 12 to 14 months, the transplanted hair will grow and blend with your native hair.
So, let’s give you a brief overview of the FUE results timeline:
– Dormant period: 0 to 4 months
– Emergent period: 4 to 8 months
– Maturation period: 8 to 12 months
– Natural hair growth cycle reached: 12 months and beyond
What Impacts The Results Timeline For Your Hair Transplant?
As mentioned, when you have a consultation, the professional will thoroughly explain the type of hair loss you have, the success rate for cases like yours, and what you can expect your personal FUE results timeline to be like. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to know what has an impact on this.
Your Suitability For FUE
Longevita will not merely approve anyone for hair transplant surgery. Every person must have a thorough consultation before they proceed to the next step and begin their treatment option. The consultant in question will make sure that the person is a good candidate for a hair transplant. After all, not all hair loss can actually be treated via surgical procedures. In addition to this, the candidate needs to have a sufficient amount of donor hair in order to ensure that all bald spots can be covered properly.
Unlike other clinics, we will not perform hair transplants on any individual if they have doubts regarding the results. We will not put anyone through the costs endured and an unnecessary procedure if we think there is not enough donor hair to complete the transplant. This is pivotal because the last thing a person wants to do is go through the experience of surgery only to discover that they don’t have the full head of hair they were expecting.
How The Procedure Is Carried Out
Of course, the success of your hair transplant and the results you experience don’t solely depend on your suitability for the procedure, but also how the procedure was carried out. This is why it is so important to choose a clinic with care and to make sure your procedure is carried out by an experienced and reputable doctor.
