I had a hair transplant to both my crown and frontal hairline. I began to see growth in the frontal region but there is still nothing growing in the crown. Is this normal or could it be a sign that the transplants in the crown have not taken?

It is relatively common to have hair transplantation done in two different areas of the scalp and have the hair start to grow in at a different period of time.

Often one or another area will start to grow at approximately three to three and a half months and the other area might not start growing until four or four and a half months.

The fact that both areas are not growing in at the exact same time does not mean that the area that is lagging behind the area that is growing is not going to have hair growth in that area.
