I went thru my fue 15mths ago. Today i am still feeling some stubbles (transplanted graft) on the recipient area. These stubbles do not seems to be growing. Is there a possibility that newly transplanted graft stays as stubble – do not fall off neither grow out and become healthy hair? Or am i just a slow grower?
While it is possible, is highly unlikely that you will start finally seeing growth at 15 months. You should have seen most growth at about 6 to 12 months following your surgery.
More importantly, the new hair growth will not appear as coarse stubble (like a beard). It’ll start off fine and grow as the months go by. Sometimes the stubble can be remnants of the original hair grafts that never fell out, but are just stuck in its place. You can test this by having someone find these stubbles and pulling on them with tweezers… or if you can reach it yourself, you can do this yourself. If the stubble is a dead hair shaft (old leftover follicle from 15 months ago), it should slide / slip right out.
The implication of this is that the surgery may have been a failure. Have you talked to your surgeon for a follow-up since your procedure?
