Does A Hair Transplant Give Instant Results

In recent years, hair transplantation has become increasingly popular since it isn’t just for those whose hair has fallen out prematurely but also benefits those who wish to change the shape of their hairline or to have a beautiful hairstyle. But does this hair transplant give instant results? Is this a permanent process, or will it cause unwanted tissue changes in the body?

The results of hair transplants cannot be seen overnight, and they are just as with normal hair growth. If you have undergone a hair transplant procedure, you will notice consistent hair growth in about six to nine months. Some patients may have to wait 12 months before they see noticeable results. 

You should keep in mind that the transplanted hair may fall out during the shock or while sleeping phase, and it is quite normal. In the following weeks, well-anchored roots start to produce new hair growth that will match your existing hair perfectly and give you natural-looking hair.

Before making a decision, you need to clearly know about hair transplantation and whether it suits you.

Hair transplantation can be done for both males and females. Different transplant procedures are available, which include the standard strip hair transplantation and the most Popular FUE hair transplantation and the new sapphire hair transplantation

Preparation steps for the hair transplantation:

Hair Transplant Surgery begins with the removal of hair follicles from the back of the head and ends with transplanting them in the balding areas.

Trimming the donor area

In the donor area, the hair is trimmed before the surgery begins.

Surgical preparation of donor area

A local anaesthetic is administered to the donor area once the hair has been trimmed.

Hair follicles in the donor area are removed either with the FUE method.

The bald-resistant hair follicles from the donor area are then removed surgically. In the FUE method, individual hair follicles are removed and transplanted in the already prepared recipient area simultaneously, also called as “Simultaneous Hair Transplant” (SHT)

Bald recipient area preparation

The balding recipient area is prepared for surgery before harvesting, once the patient has been given local anaesthesia. In most cases, trimming of hair in the recipient area may not be required.

Grafts placement based on density

A small number of grafts (1 or 2 grafts) are placed in the front line, and denser ones (3 or 4 grafts) are placed behind.

After a hair transplantation procedure

Following hair transplant surgery, there are tiny scars and a few short hairs visible on the patient’s operated area, which can be covered by a normal cap.

A successful hair transplant is completed.

The incision scars naturally heal after one week, and the redness that initially appeared in the transplanted area also disappears.

In several instances, hair transplants can be done as an outpatient procedure. After the surgery, patients can shampoo their hair after 2 to 3 days, but they need to protect their scalp from the sun and infections for a few days. Antibiotics are usually prescribed to the patient a few days after surgery.
