A hair transplant is a long term solution to stressful hair loss. But, can you enjoy your natural looking results forever?

Let’s take a look at the question, “How long do hair transplants last,” and discover more exciting information about this revolutionary treatment!

What Happens During a Hair Transplant?

A follicular unit extraction (FUE) involves removing individual hair follicles from donor areas and transplanting them in areas of need. Unlike old methods that require surgical removal of strips of scalp before harvesting follicles, systems like NeoGraft allow your hair transplant doctor to create amazing results without scarring.

What Should I Expect During Hair Transplant Recovery?

Before we answer your question, “How long do hair transplants last,” let’s take a look at what happens after your procedure. Your recovery time depends on the complexity and extent of your surgery.

On average, it can take up to a year to fully heal from a hair transplant. During this time, your recovery happens in stages.

In the weeks following your procedure, you can expect redness, tenderness, itching, and discomfort. You might also notice some scabbing. It’s important not to pick at them but to let them fall off naturally.

You might also notice shedding before new hair begins to grow. This is normal and no reason to worry. At the three-month mark, new hair will begin to push through the surface of your scalp.

Between four and twelve months is when the real magic happens. All side effects will have disappeared, and the transplanted follicles take on new life. While new growth starts off as fine  hairs, you’ll see a full growth of thicker, healthier hair by month 12.

So, How Long Do Hair Transplants Last?

A hair transplant is considered a treatment with permanent results. The transplanted follicles do not stop growing hair. However, they can slow down to a degree as you age.

A transplant cannot stop the natural aging process either. If you are prone to hair loss and notice thinning in other areas, it is safe to have a second hair transplant or maintenance treatment on your existing one.

The good news is the hairline created during your hair transplant will not recede.

Are There Ways to Boost Hair Transplant Results?

Yes, there are. The most important thing you can do is follow all post-hair transplant instructions given to you by your doctor. These have been carefully researched to ensure you have the best possible outcome.

You should also make a habit of eating healthy if you don’t already. Good nutrition is key to healthy hair growth, so modify your diet if necessary and include foods that promote the growth of healthy hair.

Speak to your transplant surgeon about combining your procedure with other treatments. Products like vitamins and procedures like PRP can significantly improve your results.

How Do I Find Out if I Qualify for a Hair Transplant?

The easiest way to find out if a hair transplant is right for you is by scheduling a consultation with your doctor. You’ll need a medical evaluation and your doctor will want to discuss your hair loss and other health history details.
