Considering a hair transplant in Atlanta, Georgia to treat male pattern baldness is a big step. You may be wondering how long the treatment will last and if it’s worth it.
How Long Does A Hair Transplant Last?
When performed by a trained, experienced hair restoration specialist like Dr. Stong, a hair transplant procedure can last a lifetime.
Taking good care of your new locks will also help ensure that you get your money’s worth out of your hair transplant investment.
Hair Loss Right After Surgery
A condition called “shock loss” results in you losing some hair in the weeks following your surgery. It’s caused by the trauma that your scalp has endured from being treated. But don’t worry, as this is just temporary. Your hair will return to its normal growth pattern within a few months.
Additional Hair Loss Years Later
Some patients may experience further hair loss, but this is original hair and not the follicles that were already transplanted. If necessary, you can have a second procedure to transplant healthy hairs into the areas of new hair loss. But the fact that you may not be done shedding hair is one of the biggest reasons that we recommend waiting until at least the age of 21 before having your hair transplant performed.
