A: You can fly home the second day after the procedure. We usually remove staples 10 and 20 days post-op. Patients that travel can have this done in their home town. We provide instructions and a staple remover that is easy for any health care professional to use. There should be no other reason to return to the office other than an optional one-year follow up.Posted by
Q: It had been 5 months since my hair transplant. I only see minimal growth of maybe a few hundred fine hairs. My transplant consisted of 2,217 grafts. Could you give me your opinion if this is normal or is it a failed hair transplant? — L.D., Miami, F.L.
A: It is too early to tell. Hair grows in very gradually with great variability from person to person.
Some patients only have a little fuzz at five months and then have great growth by one year.
You really need to wait the full 12 months to evaluate the success of the hair restoration.Posted by
