How Long Does a Hair Transplant Last?


There are several reasons that can lead to hair loss or hair thinning, including stress, trauma, hormonal disorder, or, most of all, genetic factors. You have many options to solve your bolding problem since various medications and hair treatments are nowadays widely available. However, most people suffering from hair loss choose hair transplant since it is a life lasting procedure. Is it always the case? What are the factors affecting its results?

Hair transplantation is an operation that has been performed since the early 1950s. Its popularity has been growing and exploded in recent years, especially after introducing and popularising FUE technique. These days Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is much more common than other methods since it involves fewer scars left after the procedure. The surgeon extracts hair follicles from the donor area (back lower part of your head) using micro needles. Tiny incisions are being made from where grafts are taken and then the hairs are transplanted into incisions made on the bolding area.

Do not panic when you see that your hair does not grow, or even falls out after the operation. The reason for this is a shock loss which takes place some weeks after the hair transplant procedure. You need to wait approximately up to six months to see the first results and after this period of time it becomes evident that the new implanted hairs start growing extensively.

Properly performed hair transplant may last a lifetime. The reason for this is that harvested grafts are genetically resistant to falling out. However, there are several factors affecting this result: the age of a patient, his or her lifestyle choices, hair type and hair loss type. In most cases only one procedure is required, in some – two or even more, therefore it is extremely important to understand that every case is different.

Still, hair transplantation remains the best and long lasting solution to a hair loss problem. Turkey is definitely the first country that comes to mind when thinking of this sort of procedure. Health tourism in Turkey attracts many people from all over the world and it also includes hair transplants among many other medical procedures performed in our country. According to some data, hair transplantation operations are applied every year to more than three hundred thousand people in Turkey. To compare, in a country like India the annual number of that type of operations reaches approximately two hundred thousand.
