The hairs in the transplanted grafts are shed between the 2nd and 8th week following the procedure. In some cases these hairs fall out along with the pinpoint crusts that form in the grafted area; occasionally they persist longer. The grafts are usually bare for 10-14 weeks after the procedure while the follicles recuperate to produce new, permanent, growing hair. In rare instances, the transplanted follicles do not shed their hair, but continue to grow in the days and weeks immediately following the procedure.
