Second Hair transplant
The only exception is if you want the transplant on a different (virgin) area of scalp.
Timing for a second hair transplantation
On the other hand if the donor area is used homogeneously in the first surgery and for the second surgery the extraction will be done among the first extraction area then you should wait approximately 6 months.
Secondly if the recipient area is the same area then you have to wait at least 1 year for increasing the density with a second surgery.
If the recipient area is apart from the first surgery recipient area then anytime you can have the second surgery.
