Are Hair Transplants Permanent?

Hair transplant surgery is probably the best solution for thinning hair. There are millions of people, primarily men who are diagnosed with several hair loss types, especially with male pattern baldness. There is no cure for such a hair loss type but you can make up your loss with a possible hair transplant procedure. So, are hair transplants permanent? What is the success rate of hair transplant surgeries? Let’s take a look.

A hair transplant procedure is not a cure for hair loss, nor it is a hair growth method. During a standard hair transplant surgery, our own existing hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head and used on the areas where you suffer from hair loss. The procedure is irreversible, once they’re moved, your scalp will not grow new hair on your donor area again. So, such a procedure’s results are permanent. Hair transplant procedures are performed to achieve permanent results.

Besides, the hair follicles on the back of the head are mostly resistant to specific hair loss types of male pattern baldness. Since they’ve survived from male pattern baldness attacks on your scalp, they are supposed to be just fine on their new location.

Hair transplant patients may suffer from shock hair loss during the early days of hair transplant recovery, however, this is not a permanent hair loss. The transplanted hair follicles do not fall completely, the external parts of them which are your hair strands fall and they will grow again in a very long time.

In some cases, some of the transplanted hair strands may fall. There may be several reasons for such a thing to happen. Hereditary factors are the primary reason for such things. However, surgeons make a detailed diagnostics on the scalp and can tell you if you’re really eligible for a hair transplant surgery or not.
