Step 1: The Consultation

Your free hair transplant consultation is the first step in a life-changing experience with We Grow Hair Indy. Our highly trained professionals will sit down with you one-on-one and evaluate your hair loss as well as answer any questions that you may have.

During your consultation with We Grow Hair Indy:

  • You will learn from actual patients about the hair transplant procedure.
  • You will receive a complete hair-and-scalp analysis using the latest technology.
  • You will see before and after pictures of We Grow Hair Indy hair transplant patients experiencing hair loss similar to yours.

Step 2: The Procedure

At We Grow Hair Indy, we work diligently to ensure that your hair transplant procedure is completed in the shortest time possible to reduce unwanted hair attrition (a condition in which transplanted hair “dies off” before it is transplanted back into the scalp).

The We Grow Hair Indy Hair Transplant Procedure:

  • Typically requires 5 hours to complete in which multiples of thousands of hairs are moved from your donor site (the back and side of the head where permanent hairs are abundant) to the area experiencing hair loss.
  • A suture is placed at the donor site (Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ only) and can generally be removed 10 days following the procedure.
  • Transplanted hairs are cut short before being placed. New hair will begin growing within 3-5 months of the procedure.
  • No bandages are required post-procedure, so your active lifestyle will remain that way.

Step 3: Post Procedure

The We Grow Hair Indy process goes above and beyond just a hair transplant procedure. We care about our patient’s well-being long after the transplant is complete.

After your hair transplant procedure:

  • Activity should be restricted during the first 24 hours after the procedure. Limit physically demanding activities within the first 10 days.
  • You will experience some “pinkness” and light scabbing that should subside after approximately 10 days.
  • You can wear a hat or light makeup 72+ hours post procedure to cover some of the scabbing and pinkness - please ask our medical staff for more details.

Step 4: The Follow-Up

What should you expect in the weeks following your hair transplant procedure with We Grow Hair Indy? Good question, and one that we will actively provide insight and assistance with as you recover and your natural hair begins to grow back.

What you should expect:

  • 4-6 weeks after your procedure the grafted hairs will fall out, and the dormant hair follicles will remain. Approximately 3-5 months after your procedure, you should expect to see new hair appearing and growing at a normal rate.
  • Our comprehensive patient care and follow-up program offers follow-up visits and analysis to all of our patients to ensure maximum results.
  • Scheduled follow-up visits will include the day after your procedure, 10 days after, 4 months, 8 months and 12 months after the procedure. During this time, our staff will also check in with you by phone and e-mail to ensure you are completely satisfied with your experience and results.
