Will my hair fall out again after a hair transplant?

The life of the transplanted hair is permanent. Hair transplantation process involves taking hair follicles from the donor area and transplanting them to the recipient area. Hair follicles taken from the donor area are areas that are genetically resistant to hair loss. Therefore, transplanted hair follicles usually provide permanent hair growth.

However, after hair transplantation, new hair grows in place of the shed hair and these new hairs are subjected to the natural hair growth cycle. The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: growth (anagen), resting (telogen) and shedding (catagen). According to this cycle, the transplanted hair naturally follows the cycle and during this process, the hair sheds and new hair grows in its place.

The life of the transplanted hair may differ from person to person. However, the hair transplanted after hair transplantation usually continues to grow throughout life. Therefore, the hair obtained as a result of a correctly performed hair transplant procedure can be permanent and act like natural hair growth.

Still, hair health and care is important. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, taking proper hair care and avoiding the factors that trigger hair loss can help the transplanted hair to last longer.
