Shedding of transplanted hair?


#1

Hi there,

I had a FUHT procedure with dr.arvind on 21st of last month for 2695 grafts.
All my scabs are off and im into my 21st day/nearing three week mark.
i still have lot of grafts with hair intact -about 70 percent i would say, so in your opinion how long will it take for them to come off telling from your personal experiences.

i didnt have any NOTICEABLE shedding until now.

Thnks in advance!!

Shedding of the transplanted grafts will take place anywhere from week 2 - 6 post op. For my procedures I had most of my grafts in tact 4 weeks after my procedure, then they started to all shed out.

I hope this helps.

Thnks pat

but it seems to me many of them are growing and increasing in length-is that possible or is it just in my head???
i ask coz if these are not actually going to fall(which i knw they usually)then i can ask my hair stylist to cut rest of my native hair to transplanted hair length…but if they are going to fall off before coming back up again,i will keep my hair longer to cover up transplanted area.

btw i have minimal redness left.

thnks again!!!

There is no exact norm. You may never shed some hairs (pretty normal). You may never shed most hairs (although this is rare). You may shed all your hairs between now and 8 weeks. You may shed some hairs now and some hairs 4 weeks from now.

You’ll be fine. They’ll shed (if they shed) when they shed. You’ve past the 10 day mark so all your grafts, whether they shed or not are firmly lodged in your scalp. Enjoy.

The grafts that have not shed will indeed keep growing, but eventually most will shed. Expect to keep about 15% of the grafts, the rest will shed soon. All part of the process :slight_smile:
