Does Hair Grow More Slowly After a Second or After a First Hair Transplant?

August 24th, 2005

Q: This is my second hair transplant and is seems like it is growing more slowly than my first. Is this normal?

A: It is common for a second hair transplant to take a bit longer to grow than the first, so this should be expected. It is also possible that there is some shedding from the procedure, or a continuation of your genetic hair loss.

Propecia may be helpful in this regard. It is important to wait at least a year for the transplant to grow in fully and to give a chance for any hair that was shed to regrow.
