Will Hair Transplant Hairs Grow?

Yes, the transplanted hair grows for about 12 months and after this period they grow up to 1 cm each month. The speed of extension of this hair continues in the region where the speed of the donor is extended in the same way.

Many people wonder will hair transplant hairs grow after the procedure. Hair transplant actually doesn’t create artificial hairs, it simply removes the hair follicles from the permanent area which promote hair growth. The hair growing in the transplanted is the same hair which grows on the back or side of your head. That’s why most hair transplant is a success and provide a magnificent result of hair growth in the balding area. However, it also happens where patients may experience average results. It’s due to the fact that will hair transplant hairs grow
is influenced by these following factors:

1.Hair Transplant Age

The healing process is quicker in the younger ages, hair follicles transplanted will certainly grow new hair in months. The elder may have a longer healing especially for those who are suffering from diabetes. However, if you’re under 25 then the hair transplant is not for you. The best timing is where the balding isn’t at the progressive stage. If you’re eligible for working out especially cardio training, do it, it will support the hair growth in the transplanted area.

2.The Donor Eligibility

As you have a thick natural hair then you might have a greater chance to gain a dense and full hair growth in the transplanted area. If the doctor finds your donor area is also experiencing thinning, then it might be not eligible for hair donor supply. Basically, you’re not eligible to take procedure.However, some surgeon may offer the body hair transplant which allows the surgeon to harvest hair follicles from other parts of your body like beards, mustaches, chest, hand, leg, and so forth. As the ideal donor is your head hair, the body hair transplant may not generate a satisfying result.

3. The Donor Sufficiency

In addition, the donor may not have sufficient hair to supply the transplanted area. the procedure can be still taken but the surgeon may forcibly plant the limited graft supplies and proportionally spread them in the balding area. It will grow hair but not dense enough compared those generated from thick hair supplies. With limited graft supplies, the surgeon may focus on the frontal area and hairline. The donor sufficiency also determines will hair transplant hairs grow in the future.

4.Hair Transplant Scarring

The scarring generated from the previous hair transplant procedure may become the inhibitors for the second session. It may permanently damage the donor area and make it incapable providing the new hair growth. In such case, the body hair transplant can be the solution which usually targets the beard area to harvest the hair follicles. You can contact us page for more information. Before and after photos you can see the following page.
