How Many Hair Transplant Procedures Will I Need?

The number of hair transplant procedures required to achieve one’s desired result varies from patient to patient. Important factors that may influence the number of sessions you have are as follows: a) the amount of hair loss that you are currently experiencing, b) the amount of hair loss that we anticipate you will have in the future, c) your goals and expectations, and d) the amount of donor hair you have available. The aforementioned variables will affect the number of grafts that we will ultimately transplant to achieve your desired result.

Supplementary hair transplant procedures can be utilized to target any of the following: a) to increase density in a previously transplanted area, b) to refine the hairline created in the first transplant, c) to focus on increased crown coverage, and d) to address further hair loss that has occurred after the first transplant.

It is important to keep in mind the importance of conservative planning when determining both the appropriate number of grafts per procedure and the number of procedures. Hair loss is a relentlessly progressive condition that goes on to some extent as long as you live. Accordingly, we plan your transplant design in such a way that it will look good not only in the next few years, but also into your older years as well. Each person has a finite amount of donor hair available, so it is very important that every graft is utilized in the most appropriate and effective manner. Another reason that transplanting too many grafts in one session is not recommended is because it is important to respect the blood supply of the scalp and leave some space for blood to reach all of the newly implanted grafts to optimize the survival of the transplanted hairs.

For these reasons, care should be taken in choosing a hair transplant surgeon. Above everything, what you should be looking for is an artist – someone whom you will entrust with the all-important task of creating a natural appearing head of hair that will endure for your lifetime. Everything we do – the time and care with which we approach each procedure at our office – is geared toward creating a natural result that is both priceless and timeless.

Hair transplant procedures should be spaced out at least one year apart to ensure that you see the full results of you initial procedure when planning any supplementary procedures. In this way, the patient and physician can make the best aesthetic judgments regarding the placement of additional grafts.
