Hair fall is a culmination of various factors, such as biological, genetic, and environmental factors, that may cause hair loss after a hair transplant. But this is a treatable issue. We perform FUE (follicular unit extractions) hair transplants to help hair regrow without noticeable scarring and with minimal downtime. We are here to answer all your questions about what to expect after hair transplant surgery, including possible hair loss. Let’s understand this topic in more detail below.
Can one lose hair After a Hair Transplant?
It is a standard and temporary (and pretty ironic, come to think of it) side effect of hair restoration treatment. However, patients experience hair loss after undergoing a hair transplant.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it is normal for transplanted hair to fall from shock two to eight weeks after surgery. However, the hair appears thinner by the third month after the transplant. After the shock subsides, the grafted follicles begin to produce hair typically. But as the transplanted hair grows, your hair will appear thicker and healthier.
Pattern Baldness After Hair Transplant Surgery
Most patients do not experience pattern baldness again after hair transplant surgery. This is because they do not experience pattern baldness due to the nature of the harvested hair follicles. The harvested follicles are unlikely to fall out since they are taken from the back and sides of the head. But they may experience thinning over time due to the lifespan of the follicles.
So this could be due to a surgical error when selecting the ideal donor site for hair fillings or human error on the part of the hair restoration surgeon. Restoration surgery may be needed to fill out the thin parts of the scalp.
What are the methods to Avoid Hair Loss After a Hair Transplant?
One can take many steps to experience long-lasting results from your hair transplant.
Timing of the Surgery
If someone undergoes surgery too early, patients experience hair thinning after their transplant. This is because the surgeon could harvest hair from a part of the scalp that would fall out. If the donor follicles were going to fall out eventually, the patient would see hair thinning after the hair transplant. So the patient should understand how far their hairline will recede and the overall extent of their balding before they commit to surgery.
Choose the right Hair Transplant Surgeon.
An inexperienced or poorly trained surgeon won’t choose the right donor site and cannot determine the proper time of surgery. On the other hand, a good surgeon will note your age, medical history, or other factors to determine the ideal timing for surgery and the proper technique for your needs. Hence, do your research, and consider a few promising surgeons in Hyderabad. When you finally decide to get a hair transplant surgery, make sure to pick a well-trained surgeon whose judgement you can trust.
Follow Aftercare Instructions
The success of the hair transplant is heavily dependent on the aftercare of the hair transplant. Until the new hair grows fully and you see desired results, you must take the aftercare. Following up with appointments, hair care routine etc., are essential elements of hair care. If you see issues, report them as soon as you observe them.
