Your hair transplant results after 4 months should have minor side effects. These side effects will also start to subside after these four months have passed. The hair transplant results after four months will start to show you more visible growth.

Your hairline will begin to fill in and as time passes, the density of your hair will also increase. 

There may still be some swelling and redness or even some discomfort, but it should be minor and barely visible. It is still possible for shedding to take place at this time after the hair restoration surgery as your body is still busy healing and recovering after the hair restoration surgery.

Hair Growth After 4 Months

Your hair transplant results after 4 months may still be slow as the dormant period or telogen period of the hair follicles is coming to an end, This will result in hair growth becoming more visible. This will, of course, depend on your hair cycle which is determined by your own unique genes. Therefore, each person will have a different timeline.

As soon as your growth cycle moves from the telogen phase (the dormancy period) into the anagen phase (the growth period), the hair will start growing and most of the side effects from the surgery will also have subsided as most of the healing process has completed. This will vary between individuals, as each person is different, and each person’s body has their own way and duration of healing and adjusting to the change.

The hair transplant results after 4 months may show the growth of thin, frail or even patchy hair. This is due to your body still adjusting to the hair restoration surgery, but after a couple of weeks, you will notice that the hair is indeed becoming thicker, stronger as well as denser. You will notice your hairline filling in and less shedding taking place.

It is possible for there to be minimal growth still at this point in time and that the hair follicles may still continue to remain in the telogen phase or dormant period, but do not be alarmed, just allow your body some more time to adapt to the hair restoration surgery. There is no exact timeline for recovery and each person has their own journey after the hair restoration surgery, but all are satisfied with the result, and it is well worth the wait.

Symptoms That May Still Appear After 4 Months

  • Numbness

There is no need for concern. This is perfectly normal. Everyone has a different hair cycle and most of these side effects will subside within a few weeks.

Treatments Available And What They Consist Of

There are two different treatments available that will influence your hair transplant results after four months and they are mesotherapy and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Both procedures are safe and recommended as it will allow for the best hair transplant results after 4 months. 

Mesotherapy is a treatment that allows for the vitamins and minerals as well as amino acids that were affected during the hair transplantation surgery to be replaced. This helps aid in the healing and recovery as all the essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids are available to the body to use. This treatment is delivered into the mesodermal layer of the skin where it is needed. This will greatly affect your hair transplant results after 4 months. 

The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT is another treatment that should be considered after the hair transplantation surgery. This procedure is not invasive, and it is also relatively pain free. This treatment can be adjusted to each individual’s needs and promotes the natural healing process of the body. It allows for more oxygen to be introduced into the body that aids in the recovery and success rate of the surgery. The oxygen supply to the follicles is interrupted during the hair transplantation surgery. This treatment allows for oxygen to be introduced to the follicle faster to aid in a speedy recovery. This treatment will also affect the hair transplantation results after 4 months. 

The Visible Change After 4 Months

During the first few months after the hair transplant surgery, there is little visible change and it can feel like the hair transplantation surgery was not a success as you have only experienced swelling, redness, hair loss and discomfort. This is because the hair follicles become dormant after the surgery and only after some healing has taken place, does the transition take place into the growth phase.

Then the satisfaction of the hair transplantation surgery starts taking effect as the change can be seen and is experienced. The density of your hair will start increasing and the new hairline becomes clearly visible. The success of your decision to undergo the hair transplantation surgery becomes apparent to all. The swelling, redness and hair loss will become minimal, and the minor discomfort experienced would have been worth it. 

This is only the beginning of the growth that will come. Your hair density and growth will become ever more prominent and evident in the months to come, and this result will last for years to come.
