When You Should take Another Session of Hair Transplant?
You might have heard about people who take several sessions of hair transplant. In other hands, many people also experience full satisfaction only by a single session of the procedure. There are actually explanations behind those facts. In some instances, some people might have to take several hair transplants to boost the result. However, there should be an interval between the first and the second session of hair transplant procedure.
How Bad Do Hair Transplant Hurt?
Some people might misunderstand this interval as the second hair transplant is considered to damage the first. It’s not true, the interval is there for clear reasons. It’s due to the fact that the transplanted follicles grow permanent hair within 12 months. At this point, you can evaluate the result of hair transplant you’ve taken. You can determine whether you need to take another procedure or not. There is no such boosting the new hair growth, a year is an ideal interval if you want to take another hair transplant.
It’s due to the fact that you can clearly notice the appearance of your hair a year after the procedure. At this point, you evaluate whether it’s dense enough, thick enough, natural enough, and other aspects. Furthermore, this is very important for a surgeon to transplant the additional hair grafts as you take another session. As the former transplanted hairs been fully grown, the surgeon can clearly determine where they should put the additional grafts in your scalp to achieve the desired thickness, waves, or density. It will allow the surgeon to generate a more natural look from the second hair transplant procedure.
Hair Transplant Procedure Step by Step
In other hands, you’ll find that the donor area is fully healed and eligible to provide other follicle supplies for the next session. In fact, you can be no longer eligible to take another session of hair transplant procedure if you don’t have sufficient hair donor. The interval between sessions can ensure that you have sufficient supplies for the next session.
The second procedure is taken when the first session cannot provide desired density, natural look, texture, and waves. In other hands, the second procedure may play a key role to restore the hair as the first session generate no hair growth until 12 months. Basically, the presence of second hair transplant procedure is to correct and boost the first session’s result. However, it’s actually optional, if you’re satisfied with the result of the first procedure, then wouldn’t have to take another session. You can contact us page for more information.
