Does all transplanted hair fall out? What is shock shedding after hair transplantation? Everything you wonder about hair transplantation and hair loss is in this article.
Is Transplanted Hair Loss?
Will the transplanted hair fall out after hair transplantation? Yes, the transplanted hair will fall out after the operation. But don’t worry about it. Because this is not a permanent hair loss and is a process experienced by everyone who has a hair transplant.
In hair transplantation, healthy hair follicles in the nape area are taken to be transferred to balding areas. These hair follicles cannot immediately adapt to their new place. Transplanted hair leaves the hair follicles and hair follicle cells under the skin and shed without roots. After this process is over, the hair will begin to grow healthily.
Shock Shedding After Hair Transplantation
The transplanted hair begins to fall out shortly after hair transplantation. The loss of the transplanted hair is noticed 7 – 10 days after the operation. The hair of almost every patient who has a hair transplant is lost. This stage, called shock hair loss after hair transplantation, is a part of the healing process. The patient should not worry about this spill. After the shock loss, the hair grows healthier and stronger.
Is Hair Transplantation Permanent?
Hair transplanted in hair transplantation is taken from the donor area. The nape is generally preferred as the donor area. There is no permanent loss of hair in the nape area. For this reason, the hair transplanted after hair transplantation does not fall out permanently.
Hair transplantation results are permanent if necessary care is taken until the end of recovery after hair transplantation. In hair transplantation, there is no need for constant renewal like prosthesis or wig. Transplanted hair stays with you for life.
Is There Any Possibility That The Transplanted Hair Will Not Happen?
In the first weeks after hair transplantation, hair follicles cannot hold tightly to their new places. Hair follicles that have not yet adapted to their new location can easily be damaged and ruptured. Damage to the hair follicles in the affected area causes the hair not to grow in that area.
Infection after the operation causes great damage to the hair follicles. For this reason, hygiene should be paid attention to after the operation and shampoo and care products are given by the doctor should be used regularly.
If you follow the doctor’s recommendations after the operation, the survival rate of the hair is quite high. In order not to damage and shed the transplanted hair:
- You should use the medicines given by the doctor after the operation,
- You should apply the shampoo and care products recommended by the doctor without delay,
- You should never touch the scalp after the operation.
- You should not take a shower with hot and pressurized water,
- You should not use chemicals such as gel on your hair for a while after the operation.
- In the first 2 weeks after the operation, you should protect the scalp from external factors and impacts.
