A common question asked is:
will I lose the hair transplanted or will it stay and start to grow?
The transplanted hairs are in different growth/dormant stages. When transplanted there is to be expected a change in the cycle. The hairs in the grafts start to fall out as you begin to wash your hair. Over the first few weeks, most of the transplanted hair will fall out. By the end of the first month probably all.
With any medical procedure, there is always a risk, albeit small. That is why you should take time to research. Find the doctor right for you. Assuming the quality of the Doctor. Also, the hair removed is genetically strong. Once transplanted the hair will grow over time. It will continue to grow naturally as if it was never moved in the first place.
A hair transplant takes time to fully grow and mature. Over the coming months, the hair begins to grow. Six to eight months there is a more noticeable change. A full result can take over 12 months and closer to 18 months in some cases. Patience is required, like watching a kettle boil. Typically the yield of transplanted grafts is greater than 90%. Usually approaches 95%. Lower yields can occur with repair cases. When the scalp has been impaired from previous poor surgeries. This needs to be understood and appreciated. As the doctor is working on scarring and impaired skin.
