Are Hair Transplants Permanent?

The good news is that a hair transplant is permanent. Individuals will be able to wash, dry, cut
and style their hair as they normally would. Men can even have their hair color treated if they
desire. Those that have undergone hair restoration will be able to participate in any activities
they normally enjoy and men of any age can avail themselves of a transplant.

Transplanted hair will begin growing and continue to do so. While individuals won’t see male-
pattern baldness return, the potential for thinning does exist, but not to its previous level.
That’s due to the lifespan of hair follicles themselves. Additionally, hair follicles undergo regular
cycles of growth and rest ranging from 3 to 4 months.
Hair Loss
Everyone loses a certain amount of hair on a regular basis – anywhere from 50 to 150 strands
per day. The hair grows back without anyone being the wiser. However, in male-pattern
baldness, regrowth doesn’t occur. All men experience some thinning due to age and hormone
Male-pattern baldness is entirely different. It occurs slowly over time and can begin in the early
20s or even in the late teens. The first signs may be a receding hairline or a bald spot on top of
the head.
Healthy Hair
Individuals will need heathy hair on the back or sides of the head for a transplant. Hair follicles
from these areas will be harvested for transplantation. It’s best to pursue a hair transplant as
soon as the signs of male-pattern baldness become obvious.
It’s possible for individuals that have undergone a hair transplant to see some thinning if the
hair follicle goes into its normal resting phase. The success rate of hair restoration surgery is 90
percent and higher. When the follicle emerges from the resting phase, it will continue to grow
as usual.

5 Benefits of FUE Hair Restoration

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a hair restoration technique in which hair follicles are
harvested from one area of the scalp, usually the back or sides of the head, and transplanted to
areas where hair is thinning. It’s one of the most effective and commonly used methods to
restore hair. It has multiple advantages over other methods.
Advanced Technology
Hair restoration technology has advanced significantly. The FUE technique is extremely precise
and far less invasive than past methods. Hair grows in tiny units comprised of 18 to 23 hairs, not
individual strands. Targeted hair follicle units are removed for transplantation without
disturbing surrounding hair or its natural appearance.
Transplanted hair follicles begin to grow naturally, just as they did prior to being extracted. The
result of the technique is virtually undetectable. Scarring is minimal, allowing individuals to
wear their hair in multiple styles as they desire. The technique creates a more natural and
visually appealing appearance.
Less Discomfort
Individuals that undergo the procedure experience far less discomfort and complications are
rare. Signs of the surgery usually only last a week. The procedure is performed on an outpatient
basis with a local anesthetic. There are no hospital stays. Mild analgesics can be used to
manage any discomfort.
Quicker Recovery
One of the many advantages of the procedure is less downtime. Healing is quicker and
individuals are subject to fewer post-surgical restrictions. Individuals can return to work and
most normal activities the next day. Full recovery typically takes 7 to 10 days.
The cost of FUE is based on the number of hair units that are transplanted during a single
session. The technology enables the surgeon to remove more hairs per session to achieve the
desired results. FUE has a 90 to 95 percent transplant survival rate compared to the FUT
method that only has a 75 percent survival rate.
