A hair transplant surgery is in all probability a onetime procedure and you will certainly want to get the most out of your surgery. Whether you get exactly what you want and what has been claimed by your surgeon during the post-procedural consultations depends on numerous factors. Some of these factors are under the control of the patient and the surgeon, while others are beyond the duo’s control. Understanding these factors will be certainly helpful in achieving best possible hair transplant results.
Here are some of the factors that play a key role in determining the ultimate outcome of the surgery:
Wherever you go and whatever article you read, you will see this factor at the top of the list. I happen to agree! It is the surgeon who will decide how to use your resources efficiently and produce the best results. Producing good, or even excellent, results with a lot of resources is not a big deal, but producing good results with limited resources certainly is. And in most cases, patients have limited resources in terms of donor hair supply. An experienced surgeon will plan how to use your scarce resources to produce best results before making any commitment. He will make sure that your donor hairs are used in the most efficient way.
Besides the surgical skills of the physician, the results of your hair transplant are determined by the quality and quantity of your donor hair. Remember, currently a hair transplant cannot create a single hair follicle. A hair transplant redistributes hairs. The surgeon harvests hairs from where they are in abundant quantity, and plants them where needed. If you have strong hair in abundance at the donor site, you can safely expect good results. If the hairs at the donor site are weak and scarce, you may not get that transformed look you were expecting.
Hair Transplant surgery is no doubt a safe and patient-friendly procedure, but not everybody is a candidate for every hair transplant technique. Your surgeon will assess you carefully in terms of your age, skin and hair type, extent of hair loss and scalp laxity before deciding which technique (FUT or FUE) will be best for you.
Timing of surgery also plays a key role in determining success of hair transplant. Getting the hair transplant done at quite young age, while the hair loss is still progressing, can lead to highly unnatural pattern. Ideal time for surgical hair restoration is a year after the hair loss has completely stopped.
Surgery day is the most important single event in the control of your surgeon and his team Special care is needed during intra-operative and post-operative period. Hair follicles are subject to numerous stresses such as dehydration, mechanical trauma, hypoxia, ATP depletion, cold injury, and lactic acid accumulation. These stresses can even cause death of hair follicles. Your surgeon and his team take care of these factors during the surgery and will guide you properly after the surgery how to take care of newly transplanted hairs to prevent them from any potential damage. Carefully follow your surgeon’s instructions by heart if you really wish to get the best hair transplant results.
Don’t let your hair transplant results ruined by carelessness. Pay proper attention to these points and enjoy the benefits of a great hair surgery for the rest of your life. It takes approximately 3 days before harvested hair grafts regain their blood supply, 3 to 4 months before the transplanted hairs begin to grow and 12 to 18 months before the final results can be seen.
