How long will the results last?
One of the biggest areas of misunderstanding when it comes to hair transplants is how long they last. The truth is there is no one answer to this question since it depends on multiple factors.
This will depend on what stage your hair loss is at and how aggressive/pervasive it is. Because those with aggressive hair loss will continue to experience some hair loss as they age, the results of a hair transplant will usually last much longer for those with mild to moderate hair loss than those with very aggressive hair loss patterns.
Successful results can also depend on what treatments you take post-surgery and how well you respond to them.
Patients who pursue post-surgical treatments often continue to see improvements to the health of the transplanted areas and even their donor areas. Whilst treatments aren’t needed to maintain the transplanted hair, they are required to stop the thinning of any other hair on the head. Therefore patients who respond well to treatments can expect to keep the results of their hair transplant the longest.
Level setting your expectations for your individual results is certainly something you should discuss with your surgeon before you commit to surgery.
