Hair have a growth cycle of their own which is the anagen, catagen and telogen phase in which the hair grow, rest and fall from hair follicles. Hair transplantation procedures implant live follicles in the thinning area of the scalp. Usually the hair transplant surgeons will prescribe medications for better growth of transplanted hair follicles. Even after all the care, that you take care of the ‘new hair’ about half of the hair follicles will fall because of the regular hair cycle which is not a cause of worry because new hair will grow in place of them. The lifespan of the transplanted hair will depend on your lifestyle, age, extent of hair loss and sometimes you might need a maintenance procedure to maintain the density of hair.
New balding patches of hair can develop on the different parts of scalp over time and you will have to seek treatment for them. If you suffer from an autoimmune condition or have taken chemotherapy sessions or are suffering from a chronic condition then results of the hair transplant will vary.
