The follicles transplanted are naturally hair-bearing tissues from a donor section of the scalp. So this means that it should naturally blend into the rest of your scalp as well. Of course, each follicle will produce naturally growing hair the same way as your entire scalp.
Having hair loss in a specific area doesn’t mean that it is not going to happen on another part of your body. Those suffering from pattern baldness may still experience further hair loss in the future. To clarify, this case is only true if they had the procedure while still in the earlier phases of shedding.
Fortunately, this can often be solved by transplanting healthy hair into the areas where new loss has taken place. Moreover, the successfully transplanted follicles will stay healthy and strong in those areas. That’s a lifetime guarantee.
Most competent surgeons will always take into account hair loss patterns and their root causes. There should be no cause for alarm over the transplant’s longevity with reliable surgeons. Communication is also key to help ensure that the patient is given the precise procedure. This will pave the way of predicting any potential hair loss in the future.
Dealing with Potential Hair Loss
Hair loss may occur after a transplant and should be closely monitored. Progress should remain within the patient’s natural limits. The follicles and the scalp go through a level of trauma throughout the hair transplant process. As a result, hair shedding will likely occur in most cases.
In cases where the hair begins to shed postprocedure, this is only “shock loss,” a natural reaction of the body. However, the surgeon may also suggest medication that can enhance hair growth. If hair loss occurs at the time of the transplant, usually patients need further analysis.
Patients that suffer from an illness that causes hair loss may opt to schedule another operation at a later date. This will prevent any form of hair loss that may occur during the procedure. Medications and supplements will be provided to these patients to ease them into the whole hair transplant process.
Some patients choose to have multiple procedures to increase their hair density. This is because hair loss happens in varying degrees and progression. A single procedure may not suffice given these cases due to certain physical restraints. Luckily, once a transplant procedure succeeds, it will be unaffected by hair loss. Rest assured that once a procedure has been successful, there will be no need for repeated operations.
Having Healthy Hair For a Lifetime
When performed by a professional hair restoration practitioner with a breadth of knowledge and experience, like ours, the results of hair transplants on women lasts a lifetime.
This is because of the science behind it all. The hair loss resides in certain follicles and not the entire scalp. The hair transplant procedure takes healthy hair-bearing follicles and transplants them into the areas that require hair growth. With hereditary baldness, the hair maintains the characteristics of where it was taken from. Thus, hair transplant surgery is the only permanent solution to hair loss.
