Is A Hair Transplant Permanent?

A common question people ask is “will I lose the hair transplanted or will it stay and start to grow?” The transplanted hairs are in different growth/dormant stages, and when transplanted there is to be expected a change in the cycle. The hairs in the grafts start to fall out as you begin to wash your hair, over the next few weeks most of the transplanted hair will fall out and by the end of the first month probably all.

With any medical procedure, there is always a risk of failure that is why you have taken so long to research and find the doctor right for you and minimise any risks. Assuming the quality of the Doctor and the hair is removed from the genetically strong area around the back and sides of your head once transplanted and over time the hair will continue to regrow naturally as if it was never moved in the first place.

A hair transplant takes time to fully grow and mature, over the coming months the hair begins to grow and seems to grow in starts and stops. Six to eight months there is a more noticeable change, a full result can take over 12 months and closer to 18 months in some cases so patience is required, like watching a kettle boil, the more you look the longer it takes. Typically the yield of transplanted grafts is greater than 90% and usually approaches 100%. Lower yields can occur with repair cases when the scalp has been impaired from previous poor surgeries; this needs to be understood and appreciated as the doctor is working on scarring and impaired skin.
