How long does a hair transplant last? Is it permanent?

 

While considering this surgery, it is normal to wonder if a hair transplant is permanent and effective in the long term. We are here to reassure you that YES it lasts a lifetime! 

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure that uses micro-grafting technology to extract your hair follicles. These extracted follicles are inserted in the areas of your scalp that are balding or having hair loss.

A hair transplant is long-lasting, so it is considered permanent. It also takes a long time to heal and recover. People who have baldness and excessive hair thinning on their scalp are suitable candidates for a hair transplant.

In fact, after your hair follicles are grafted into areas where your hair is thinning, it takes some time for your skin to heal. At this stage, many patients might notice that the newly transplanted hair falls out. It must be understood that it will start falling off around six weeks after surgery. However, this is a temporary phase, and new hair will grow out of the graft in another five to six weeks. This can be frustrating to encounter or you may think that your transplant was unsuccessful,  but take note that this is normal and you will start to see new hair growth in a few months in a permanent capacity.

It takes between six months and a year to fully heal and before you can see significant changes in hair growth. That’s the hair that will continue to grow naturally as you grow old! 

    To sum up, modern-day hair transplants are permanent, safe, and natural-looking. Regardless of your gender, age, and extent of hair loss, consult a doctor today and discuss your hair transplant options. With a high success rate, these surgeries can get your lost self-confidence back!
