Does Hair Transplant Work?
Many patients have a question, “Does Hair transplant, work?” The short answer is, in nearly all cases, “Absolutely.”
The next topic on most people’s minds is graft survival. Studies have shown that approximately 85-95% of all the implanted hairs will grow in the transplanted area. This high percentage indicates that hair transplants is permanent, in general, are very successful. Some patients also fear graft rejection, as with an organ transplant. However, this fear is unfounded, because the hair follicles are “donated” from your own body, so they won’t be rejected. There are occasions where the grafts don’t grow well, and the physician will look for causes of poor growth, such as a skin or inflammatory disorder. However, these cases are quite rare natural transplants.
Hair naturally grows in small bundles of one to four hairs, surrounded by a support system of glands, muscle and connective tissue that forms a “follicular unit.” A surgeon must pay attention to many factors to ensure a natural appearance. The angles, colors, textures, directions must correctly match the patient’s existing hair. Furthermore, there must be irregularity and randomness in the hairline as well as feathering in finer hair in places, such as those follicles donated from the nape of the neck. The finest single hairs are placed in the very front of a hairline, followed by two hair grafts, then three hair grafts. If a physician or technician simply puts two and three hair grafts in the frontal hairline the end result can appear very unnatural. Also, the natural curve of the hairline must be accounted for as well, as well as an age-appropriate hairline.
We could talk percentages and graft counts all day long. If we measure true hair transplant success rates by how happy my patients are with the end result. Virtually almost 100% patients are happy or very happy with their hair transplant results, with many describing their hair restoration as “life-changing.”
Usually, Only disappointment is lack of density which is due to inherent limitations in the number of grafts that can be placed in any given area of the scalp. The number of grafts that can be placed in a recipient area is less than the number of follicles that grow naturally in a native area. This is because the blood supply of the scalp will only support a given number of grafts.
What Percentage of FUE Hair Transplants Are Successful?
The FUE procedure is a more time-consuming process due to the fact that individual follicular units are removed from the donor site to be transplanted into the beneficiary site. Regardless of whether this is cultivated physically or related to one of the numerous accessible complements available to doctors has a minimal impact on the ultimate rate of success experienced by patients opting for FUE hair transplant, as the most important factor in determining the rate of success is the overall percentage of fibers that are successfully transplanted and, of course, the final appearance of the hair transplant in the eyes of the patient.
At the point when the fitting volume of follicular units is transplanted with the goal that sufficient inclusion is accomplished, an FUE Hair Transplant should bring about a 100 percent success rate. However, in reality, the yield is generally lower than that for the FUT technique. It is absolutely worth noting that this expected level of success is based on the assumption that the doctor performing the procedure is experienced, knowledgeable and skilled in performing the FUE procedure as well as the other available hair transplant options.Read More Is Hair Transplant Permanent?
