What will happen three months after a FUE hair transplant in Turkey?
Three months after the FUE hair transplant in Turkey, the patient will experience the following developments:
• The newly transplanted hair begins growing. At this stage, it is thin and fine. It will grow thicker and longer over the course of the next months;

Why does the hair look thin three months after a FUE hair restoration in Turkey?
As stated above, when it comes to what to expect three months after a FUE hair transplant, now is the time when the new hair starts to grow at a length of around ¼ inches (0.63 cm). However, this new hairs can be thin and rough.
As the time will go by, it will become stronger and thicker, therefore there is no reason to worry. Do not be disappointed when you see three months after a FUE hair transplant that the transplanted hair appears as not having life and badly textured.

This happens because of how the human body functions. Each organ performs a certain task. All the human body organs work in cycles, and these cycles take time. When the hair follicles are transplanted on the bald areas of the scalp during a FUE hair restoration procedure, they need to undergo a complete cycle before appearing naturally grown and being accepted by the scalp.
