How Long Does a Hair Transplant Last?
If you’re starting to research hair restoration as a solution to your hair loss, it’s normal to wonder “How long does a hair transplant last? Am I going to have to go back for surgery every few years just to maintain my transplanted hair?”
The good news is that when performed by a trained, experienced hair restoration specialist, a hair transplant procedure can last a lifetime.
That’s because the genetic predisposition for hair loss resides in the follicle, rather than in the scalp. Hair transplant surgery takes healthy hair follicles and transplants them to your thinning or balding areas. With hereditary baldness, your hair maintains the characteristics of where it was taken from, regardless of where it’s placed in the scalp. That’s why hair transplant surgery is the only permanent solution to hair loss.
Since hair loss is progressive and there’s a physical limit to what can be done in a single procedure, some patients choose to have multiple procedures in order to increase their hair density. But that doesn’t affect the hair that was originally transplanted—it just augments it.
