Hello Doctor,

I had a hair transplant with the Trichophytic closure method, I was wondering, does the hairs within the scar take the same amount of time to grow through the scar as the newly transplanted ones?

My scar looks good..however, I’ve noticed some small patches where hair hasn’t grown through yet.

Thanks again for this fantastic website

After a hair transplant surgery you may experience hair loss around the donor area with or without trichophytic closure. There can even be large patches of hair loss. The hair loss is temporary and it usually grows back after several months and it can take as long as a year. Transplanted hair takes several months to grow as well (up to one year). The hairs in the trichophytic area should grow at the same rate as the recipient area hairs.
