Is this your case? We have good news for you because we have made a selection of the most frequently asked questions about hair transplantation. Pay attention!
How is the hair transplant procedure?
Let’s start with the most common question; and for your relief we’re talking about a simple surgery, but one that requires prior evaluation and diagnosis, as well as the application of anesthesia and postoperative planning.
At what age can I have an implant?
Ideally, you should be at least 25 years old to undergo this procedure. Although it could be done earlier in case androgenic alopecia is the cause of baldness.
And it is that this disease diminishes the hair making it thinner to the point of disappearing. Therefore, before it is too late, it is important to have a donor area to extract the follicles that are going to be grafted in the bald areas.
When can a hair graft not be performed?
It may be hard to believe, but there are cases in which a hair graft is contraindicated because good results are not achieved.
For example, if you suffer from any inflammatory disease of the scalp that produces baldness such as lupus, lichen, alopecia areata or fibrous frontal alopecia, unfortunately you will not be able to solve the problem with this type of surgery.
In these situations the doctor will recommend alternative treatments to treat baldness.
When do you see the results?
The results are more evident once 4 months have elapsed when the hair has grown a lot and we can consider it as normal hair, but really the hair will look better after 8 months when it has grown by 85%.
When can I cut my hair?
There is no exact moment to start cutting it, but it is logical that until it grows enough it is not necessary to cut it. Can we give you some advice? Wait until the doctor authorises you to do so after a respective check-up.
However, it is most likely that you will first prohibit the use of a razor until the scar heals completely.
What if I have fine hair?
Hair grafts in fine hair are not viable, as they are not dense, so there is a risk that not enough hair will grow in the donor areas.
Can I get a hat after the implant?
We wouldn’t be surprised if you have this doubt; because people with baldness (especially men) tend to wear a lot of caps to hide their lack of hair.
The most positive thing is that there is good news for them, because on the fourth day of the graft they can wear hats, caps or scarves, as long as these accessories do not damage the donor area.
