I developed a bald spot virtually overnight, why?
Differences between “Organic Hair Transplantation” and classical hair transplantation :
A chemical mixture is used in the classical hair transplantation method in order to increase the volume of the scalp. This process helps surgeon to work comfortably however it was observed that these chemicals also harm the scalp tissue. This result in decreased viability of new transplanted hair grafts.
However a mixture containing adipose derived stem cells is injected to the scalp in the “Organic Hair Transplantation” for the same purposes. Injection of this mixture result in rejuvenation of the scalp without causing any harm. Surgeon can also work more comfortably after the injection of the mixture since the volume of the scalp is increased
It would be unlikely the bald spot appeared almost overnight. You may want to see a doctor for an examination

Dermatologist and then Hair Doctor
I consider important that you visit a dermatologist and based on the diagnosis consider visiting a Hair Specialist Doctor to explore the different treatments that can help you get rid of that bald spot.As mentioned before, maybe you didn't noticed that bald spot before and now it just enlarged. It could also be something that your dermatologist can make regrow with a medical treatment.Best of lucks!
