Before going through hair transplant surgery, you may be curious about its long-term benefits or the potential to begin balding again. At Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A., our board-certified physicians offer micro-follicular hair transplantation and follicular unit extraction to help you achieve a natural-looking, long-lasting solution to hair loss. By offering both techniques, our plastic surgeons have the flexibility to find the best solution for your hair restoration.
After you complete your hair restoration treatment, the harvested and transplanted hair follicles will start to grow. Although it’s normal to experience temporary hair shedding a few weeks after your treatment, your hair will follow its normal life cycle, and new hair will grow where it was transplanted. It is unlikely that you will continue a pattern of baldness again after your surgery due to the nature of the harvested follicles. To assure you achieve the best results for your hair transplant surgery, keep note of the following.
- Our surgeons carefully select the donor hair for transplantation, usually from the back of the head where growth is robust. If your hair begins to thin or become patchy in parts, this could be due to the donor hair selection.
- It is imperative you follow all post-operative instructions and notify your surgeon if you experience any concerns.
- The timing of your surgery can be crucial as well. Talk with your surgeon about your degree of balding and how far your hairline may recede before undergoing a hair transplant.
