I\'m 9 ,months and no results


#1

This is my third surgery, I don’t think I have had one graft grow so far. Got 2500. Bad shock loss. I did alot of research and went to a great surgeon(name witheld). Panic mode has set it in for me. I think I’m just a couple yrs away from an extremely abnormal appearance. Two scars in the back of my head. I guess some people just don’t turn out. What should I do? Thanks

Justinjeffers,

Sorry to hear that you haven’t seen much growth by now. There are patients who don’t notice growth until they reach the later part of the post-op waiting period. Some patients actually experience delayed growth after each hair transplant procedure they undergo. The delay of growth could be caused by numerous factors. About 2% of patients will experience delayed growth. It would probably be in your best interests to have your surgeon evaluate your case. Usually there is some underlining factor to the lack of growth so it would be a positive action to notify your surgeon.

would it be wrong or irrsesponsible to assume that Dr Coles clinic recognise this guy and he is their patient. Why not talk to him off line for him to be here means he has no feedbakc from you and is feeling bad

Ok, I’m feeling a little better. What are the ‘later stages’ of post op? And, what are the factors of delayed growth? Currently putting rogaine foam on the grafts, eating well, taking msm, multi vitimins, ect. I don’t have a very good feeling about this overall…Thanks

Canadadry Canadadry,

I must place special interest in the fact that I feel absolute concern for this patient. We offered this patient a helping hand by suggesting that the performing clinic be made aware of the situation. Whether or not this forum member is any certain clinic’s patient has absolutely nothing to do with offering our help. I have to ask whether or not you have any valid evidence leading you to suspect that this particular patient is of our clinic. Strangely enough, you seem to have a lack of real concern for this patient with your inappropriate and pretentious dialogue. Thanks for your guiding words in this sensitive thread. By now, you may already know the answer to your own question. :slight_smile:

The later stages of the post-op period are 6 months to 12 months. Most patients will usually start to see growth at 6 months post-op. I have seen cases that have taken a full 12 months of maturity to yield significant growth. Some patients may experience delayed results due to a combination of shock loss and a dynamic change in the growth cycle of hair in the donor area. Illness and stress could also cause a downward shift in seeing evidence of growth. Usually the telogen phase has duration of 3 months, but this varies from patient to patient. There are more limitations to growth in regard to body hair.

I encourage you to send current photos to your clinic to determine what steps you should next take. If there is an underlining condition to cause minimal growth or no growth then a biopsy may be necessary. I hope to have shed some light on the situation.

Just for the record, no I’m not a patient of Dr Cole. I know that a very good doctor performed surgery. I’m just not sure what to do. I don’t that I will experience a flood of improvement in the next 3 months. I’m waiting for growth of any kind at this point.

I would not have ever said such a remark about Dr. Cole’s clinic. I was impressed with his after surgery videos. They have a good procedure that i love. I am going to do my eyebrows there.:flower:
