Expected Results After Hair Transplant Surgery

by

Hair Transplant surgery has become very popular in the past few years among men and women suffering from hair loss, The results of the hair restoration surgery varies from person to person. It depends on many factors. The two factors that are important to be considered is the degree of hair loss and the amount of donor hair available. These factors should be discussed in detail with the hair restoration surgeon before considering hair transplant surgery as an option.

The amount of coverage and density depends on the extent of baldness and patient's donor density. During the consultation with hair restoration specialist, an evaluation of hair loss is performed and a recommendation with detailed plan of the overall coverage, the progression of hair loss, donor availability and the number of procedures required to give a natural result should be discussed. Once the patient's agrees on the plan then, they can proceed to the procedure.

Once the procedure is performed according to the comprehensive plan, then the waiting begins. Usually within approximately one month, much of the transplanted hair is shed. In about three months, the hair begins to grow and continues to grow at a normal rate. About six months after the hair transplant session, the transplanted hairs begin to take on a natural appearance and will continue to grow. It may take up to 18 months for all the transplanted hair to grow in. The donor site which the hair was harvested using either FUE or FUT technique will continue to heal and is well hidden with the surrounding hair. Once the hair growth process is complete, the hair restoration specialist and the patient can decide if additional procedure is necessary.
