The thought itself makes one have numerous thoughts, ideas, opinions, and much more. But what most miss out in these thoughts is perhaps the most important, which often gets clouded with those opinions you might have.
Do you need a hair transplant? When would you need a hair transplant?
These are some of the questions which might have come to your mind if you are suffering from baldness or severe hairfall.
So if you are getting a hair transplant done, according to the procedure, hair is taken from a part of your head(Donor area) to be placed in the bald area. But there's another question which rises,
"Will the hair grow back in the donor area?"
and when does hair grow back in the donor area after an FUE hair transplant procedure?
Mostly answered in brief, this question is often partially ignored because most people are more concerned about when the hair will grow in the recipient areas. However, with the advancements in technology, knowledge and of course curiosity, many people are now moving on to thinking about the other aspects of a hair transplant surgery that are generally missed out or may not be known.
It is important to first understand what happens to the donor area in both FUE and FUT techniques, to have a better understanding of the donor area regrowth pattern.
Here's what it is like:
In a FUT technique, donor hair regrowth is not possible. The procedure involves a strip of the scalp skin being extracted. This leaves a thin scar which is hidden by the hair in that region because the strip is taken from the area that has more hair density. But unlike FUT, the FUE procedure does not leave any scars and has a lesser recovery time.
Well, the good news is, hair growth in the donor area does occur after a FUE hair transplant procedure. Here’s the reasoning for it.
The FUE hair transplant procedure is designed in a specific manner which is carried out with extreme intricacy while extracting the hair grafts. This stimulates the growth of the hair-bearing tissue in the donor area.
Hair growth after hair transplant in the donor region depends on the skill and expertise of the surgeon. Another important aspect of hair growth after a hair transplant surgery is that, the faster donor area incisions heal, the sooner the new hair-bearing tissues start showing the urge symptoms to grow back. You might also be worried about the possible side effects of the procedure, which you need not worry as much about. As long as your hair transplant is performed by highly experienced hair transplant surgeons, you are in safe hands and can expect impeccable results.
Now comes the time aspect.
How long does it take for hair to grow back in the donor area?
This is something that can be a unpredictable. It differs from person to person in most ways. Hair growth after hair transplant usually depends on how healthy you are, and how well you follow your doctor's instructions. It might take you either 3-6 months or more. But there will be a lot of other medical factors that will depend based on the procedure and your healing capacity.
All you need to do is to follow your doctor’s instructions, keep your scalp clean, and protect the scalp from exposure to dust and sunlight.
