Is One Hair Transplant Surgery Enough?

Is One Hair Transplant Surgery Enough? The problem of hair loss can occur in some people only in the form of a slight opening at the front hairline or crown area. In this case, the person does not need a number of hair follicles. Even one thousand grafts may be sufficient for people with a slight regression of the anterior hairline. Therefore, a single hair transplant is enough with already impressive results.

Under normal circumstances, one hair transplant operation with a professional team is enough for successful results even for severe hair loss. However, there may be a need for a second hair transplant due to some problems after the operation.

A Second Hair Transplant Operation

The most common reason for having a second hair transplant is that the patients are not satisfied with the hairline created in the first procedure. Similarly, if the first hair transplant does not entirely cover the target area, you can request a second hair transplant.  However, there are many other reasons to have a second hair transplant.

If you want to have a second hair transplant, it may be because you are experiencing one or more of the following:

  • Hair density in the target area is insufficient.
  • Planted hair is weak, and you experience hair loss.
  • New hair does not come out well.
  • You are not satisfied with your new hairline.
  • Initial hair transplant operation is not successful.

If you have one of these problems above, a second hair transplant may be necessary. However, in most of the cases, one transplant is enough for successful results. Let’s have a look at these problems in detail.


If your new hair looks less sparse than your natural hair after the first hair transplant, you can consider having a second hair transplant. This is usually a natural consequence of the removal of healthy hair follicles from a small area. Your doctor will explain to you during the first procedure if a second hair transplant will be necessary.

Weak Hair Follicles

Taking weak hair follicles out of the donor area will inevitably result in unsuccessful operation as these follicles are susceptible to hormonal and genetic factors for hair loss.Transferring these weak hair follicles from one place to another does not solve the problem. Therefore, hair continues to be affected by risk factors.

An experienced hair transplant centre knows precisely where the most active donor site is located on the scalp and does not use weak follicles. In esteGrande, we select the healthiest follicles to obtain perfect results.

Although it sounds very attractive, do not ask your doctor to take as many hair follicles as possible. Our physicians will definitely avoid using weak hair follicles from other regions. However, people who are inexperienced and ignore ethical behaviour may take this risk to generate more income.

Inadequate Care after the Operation

Taking care of yourself after the hair transplantation can be as important as the procedure itself. Your doctor will provide a list of instructions and comprehensive information on the care of the planting area for the days and weeks after the operation.

Scratching the target area or improperly washing it can prevent hair follicles from holding on to the scalp. Also, an infection may occur due to poor hygienic conditions. Therefore, in such cases, a second transplant may be necessary. Follow the instructions carefully for successful results.
