Thanks to grafts that are extracted from an area of the head where they’re genetically programmed not to fall out, yes it can last forever as long as the procedure is performed by the right surgeon and along with proper aftercare. When performed by a trained, experienced hair restoration specialist, a hair transplant procedure can last a lifetime. Hair transplant surgery takes healthy hair follicles and transplants them to your thinning or balding areas. With hereditary baldness, your hair maintains the characteristics of where it was taken from, regardless of where it’s placed in the scalp. That’s why hair transplant surgery is the only permanent solution to hair loss.
The hair follicles are harvested from an area that is resistant to hair loss, which ensures that the scalp will naturally accept the transplanted follicles. The result will be a very natural growth of hair, and the new hair that grows will show the same characteristics the same way as the surrounding hair in that area. Surgeons prefer to extract the grafts from the back of the patient’s head. This is because the hair follicles on the back of our heads are genetically resistant to hair loss. That is why they don’t lose this genetic trait even when they are transplanted to the patient’s recipient area. People suffering from male/female pattern baldness hold the risk of further hair loss in the future. But, in most cases, the problem is solved by performing a second or third hair transplant procedure on the affected areas where new hair loss has occurred.Since hair loss is progressive and there’s a physical limit to what can be done in a single procedure, some patients choose to have multiple procedures in order to increase their hair density. But that doesn’t affect the hair that was originally transplanted. However, regardless of these problems, the transplanted hair will remain secure and will last a lifetime.
