Is Hair Transplantation Permanent?
To answer this question briefly, the transplanted hair remains on the scalp for LIFETIME. Hair transplantation is performed by transplanting hair follicles from the donor area to the bald area. The donor area is usually determined as the nape of the neck between the patient’s ears. The hair follicles in this donor area are genetically very strong. Even if a person experiences hair loss at a young age, you will see that there is strong hair in the nape area when he/she reaches the age of 70. In this respect, it is preferred to transplant the hair that is genetically difficult to fall out in the nape region to the frontal area with baldness.
What is the Success Rate in Hair Transplantation?
We can say that hair transplantation in the hands of a qualified and expert team is permanent for life. It has been observed that 90-95% of the transplanted hair is retained in hair transplantation procedures performed by competent people. On the other hand, there may be a 10% hair loss after hair transplantation. This is an expected result by doctors.
According to experts, 15% or more hair loss after hair transplantation indicates that the hair transplantation has failed. Permanent hair transplantation does not mean that it will not be affected by environmental conditions. Patients should take good care of their hair after hair transplantation. When patients do not take good care of their hair, they may experience hair breakage or hair loss. This is an undesirable situation. Some of the conditions required for hair transplantation to be successful are as follows:
⦁ The clinic, hospital or institution that performs hair transplantation should be of high quality and the hair transplantation procedure should be performed by experts in the field,
⦁ The donor area should be taken from the part with strong hair follicles that are genetically resistant to hair loss,
⦁ Pay attention to the things recommended by the doctors after the operation. Shampoo, cream and solutions recommended by the doctor should be used.
Why does hair transplantation fail?
Why does hair transplantation not work? Is there a possibility of hair transplantation not working? One of the things that people who want to have a hair transplant are most curious about is the possibility of hair transplantation not working. Hair transplantation procedures give 95% effective results when done in safe hands. However, in studies, there are cases where hair transplantation does not work, albeit with a small percentage.
The reason for hair transplantation procedures that do not work or simply rejected by the body is generally known as Lichen Planus (LPP) syndrome. Lichen planus syndrome is a skin disease that affects different parts of the body, mostly the mouth and genital area. According to the procedures performed, 17 cases of LPP occurred 4-36 months after hair transplant surgery. However, according to thousands of positive hair transplant results, the rate of hair transplant failure is very low.
The transplanted hair begins to grow 6-12 months after hair transplantation. If you follow your doctor’s recommendations after hair transplantation and do your hair care procedures well, you will overcome the hair transplantation process in the healthiest way. In total, you will have healthy and strong hair after 1 year.
