I'm posting a couple older photos from 2012 showing the start of new growth in my crown area. I often get the question regarding the first sign of new growth. Of course it's different for every individual but for most it starts about months 3-4.
This picture was taken 11 weeks and three days after surgery and you can clearly see the tiny new hairs popping through my scalp. You can also see a pimple in the second picture which is very common after a transplant. This occurs when new hairs encounter an issue breaking through the surface. Nature always wins and the hair eventually surfaces.
