Suffering from hair loss can be a huge burden. For sufferers, an effective solution is needed to treat the condition. Transplanting your own hair has proven to be the most effective option for many years. But how long does the result actually last? Are long-term results possible with a hair transplant?
A hair transplant is a big step that can massively improve the hair situation. If the procedure is carried out correctly, the operation will not be visible and the patient’s hair will appear natural and thick.
For many, however, the question now arises as to how long the result will last at all. Do you have to go under the knife again after a while? Or can long-term results be achieved through a hair transplant?
The good news: under the right conditions, the result lasts a lifetime. We are happy to explain why this is and which factors are important for durability.
Hair loss can have many reasons. To ensure a successful transplant, it is crucial to know the causes. Only then can you correctly assess the chances of a hair transplant.
In some cases, illness, stress or other external factors are responsible for the loss. Then it makes sense to first tackle the causes before daring to treat the hair.
Hair transplant is generally not recommended for autoimmune diseases, as the hair can then fall out again.
However, the reason for hair loss is often in the genes. A male sex hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), is responsible for hereditary hair loss. In this case, hair transplantation can achieve long-term results and there is a good reason for that.
The grafts used for a transplant come from an area at the back of the patient’s head. It is easy to explain why this area of all things is particularly suitable.
The donor area contains hair that is resistant to DHT and is therefore not affected by androgenic alopecia. If these are transplanted, they do not fall out again and long-term results are achieved through hair transplantation.
Proper aftercare plays a major role in the longevity of transplanted hair. Behavior after the hair transplant fundamentally contributes to the chances of success.
It is important to know about the negative effects of harmful substances such as alcohol and nicotine. The sun, improper hair washing or too much physical exertion can also damage you and your hair.
Good aftercare is of great importance. If you have any questions, you should contact the doctor treating you. Follow his instructions and advice so as not to endanger the result and your health.
If the causes of hair loss are known, the prerequisites for a successful procedure are met and the aftercare is carried out correctly, there is still one crucial point: Choosing the right clinic.
