Some patients might feel scared during this process but it is all natural. This falling out means that new hair is making itself a place to grow healthily. Hair loss doesn’t mean the hair follicles are gone, it is quite opposite. During the fall out process, follicles still remain.
They need a few weeks to be at their growth phase. After 2 to 3 months getting a hair transplant, this is the phase where hair is normally resting. If the patient got FUE, scalp tends to look exactly same as their scalp before the surgery. This is also a normal process too. During this time, patients still need to attend their appointments with their doctors. It is important to follow the instructions their doctors give them.
