Hair transplant limitations

Hair transplants surgery is nowadays a very common and effective alternative against Hair Loss and it is probably the only “permanent” solution but, it is very important to know that it is not a final one.

Back in the days, the options of doctors who performed it where very limited, and the old school technology used to leave linear scar on the back of the head, very pronounced implanted follicles, or an extremely perfect hairline that does not look natural.

Things have improved drastically on the past 10 years, especially after the invention of Robotic Hair Transplant machines, yes! A Robot that can transplant hair, amazing right? Well it was to be expected with the increasing demand of this procedure. But even with this crazy technological advance, the procedure has its limitations and that’s why it can not really be called a “permanent solution” without being questionable.

  • Hair Transplant Surgery does not stop Hair Loss

The procedure will implant follicles in the affected area but will not stop the other follicles around or close to the implanted ones from falling. This means that you will have fuller hair on that particular area but, with the time, the Non-implanted follicles that are still being affected from the condition will begin to fall. That’s why it’s said that most of the patients undergo 1-3 procedures during their lifetime.

  • Large bald areas cannot be fully covered

If the area you desire to implant is very wide, it would become fuller but only partially, as it would require too much extraction and for you to be “bald” on the extracted area. Think about it, you would be moving your follicles from one place to another, and if you need to extract too much then that space would be affected.

  • Follicles where extracted from a Hair Loss affected area

It could also happen that the follicles extracted where taken from outside the genetically resistant area (occipital zone) which will continue to thin and eventually be lost. That’s another reason to choose a qualified specialist, even though if that means couple of thousand $ more.

So, if you are candidate, a Hair Transplant is the way to go, but knowing its limitations and what to expect will help and prepare you to overcome them.

Keep in mind that a Hair Transplant will not get you immediate results and that your appearance and self-esteem might be affected during the process. Hair Filler Fibers are a great complement after a transplant and can be used as soon as 5 days after the surgery to conceal implanted follicles and add fullness and volume instantly.
