When a hair transplant is performed by a skilled surgeon that is well trained and experienced then your hair restoration should last a lifetime. That is as long as you take care of your locks.
Hair Loss Right After Hair Transplant Surgery
There is a condition called “shock loss” that happen a few weeks after a hair transplant procedure. It is caused from the trauma that your scalp undergoes during the procedure. There is no need to worry because this hair loss is only temporary. Your hair will grow in its normal growth pattern within a few months.
Additional Hair Loss
Some patients can experience some hair loss but this is not the hair follicles that were transplanted but rather their original hair. If this does happen some patients undergo a second hair transplant to put hair back into the areas of new hair loss. The fact that a person may not be done shedding their hair is the prime reason we tell patients under the age of 21 to wait before undergoing a hair transplant surgery.
