Q: How noticeable will the scaring be after hair transplant surgery?

 

A: Every surgery leaves scars but the size and visibility of scars depends on the surgical process. There are two main procedures – Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Excision (FUE). Both the procedures but former is more scarring than latter. FUE leaves little to no scarring and also has faster healing.

 

Q: Will everyone know that I have got a hair transplant done?

 

A: It is a surgical process that leaves scar on scalp. If the scar is visible, others would come to know that a hair transplant is done. FUT process leaves marks as the process involves stripping a strip of skin from donor area and planting it on the receiver area. But FUE is less scarring because the process involves individual hair harvesting. Hair in the group of 4-5 are removed from donor area and implanted in the receiver area leaving little scarring on the donor area.   

 

Q: Will the results of hair transplant be permanent?

 

A: Yes, it’s result will be permanent in nature. You will see a natural growth of hair on the transplanted area and this growth will be long lasting. The donor hair follicles are taken from back of head where hair follicles are more permanent than the hair on front side of scalp.

 

Q: How long will I need resting after hair transplant surgery?

 

A: The wounds of NeoGraft procedure recover within 3-4 days of surgery. The hair follicles are safely implanted in the receiver area and the risk of infection is pretty low. Also, pain becomes a non-factor after healing of wounds. A patient can go to work after 4 days of surgery but some patients take a week to fully recover from the surgery. How much time do you need to recover from a hair transplant depends on your overall health and medical condition.

 

Q: Will I lose more hair after hair transplant surgery?

 

A: There will be hair loss after hair transplant but it would be temporary and new hair would start emerging after shedding of transplanted hair. It is normal shedding of hair due to temporary loss of blood supply to the transplanted graft. As soon as the blood supply resumes, the hair follicles start growing again. You should rest assured that hair transplant is more permanent in nature.
