As long as the transplanted hairs came from the “permanent donor zone”, they should be resistant for the most part from falling out as a result of DHT. Keep in mind that on average a normal person loses 50 to 100 hairs a day. Previously when they placed hair grafts into your recipient area there were likely a few miniaturized hairs left in the recipient zone. It is likely these few hairs that were in the recipient zone were programmed to fall out anyway (shock loss) over time once the new grafts were placed.
Grafted hairs loss due testosterone therapy. I could use some help.
It is not 100% true that all hairs from the the "safe" donor area are resistant to DHT and will continue to miniaturize after a transplant. However you do need to realize that 100-150 hairs "fall out" every day during a normal hair cycle. This cycle of hair falling out and being replaced is not the cause of baldness but just a system of normal hair growth.
This causes hair loss and this is well known. You may not be able to get the hair you lost back.Check with your doctor
Powder02,Hair transplanted from the permanent donor zone should not be affected by TRT. However, some people do have some miniaturization in the donor area. In the individual with miniaturization in the donor area, I would advice caution with TP. These patients may go on to have thinning donor area, hence thinning transplant. This will be increased in the individuals using TRT.Sincerely,

We have definitely seen TRT affecting hairs whether they are the previously existing hair or grafted ones. I would be very cautious with TRT unless your doctor recommends it for you. Your best bet is a FUE procedure as this will be more natural looking and scarless along with cessation of TRT. We are always here were you to need additional information.
