Does it really work?
Yes! Conventional Hair Transplant growth rates are at about 90-95%. This is because Hair transplant surgery redistributes existing, healthy hair, which is usually genetically encoded to virtually last a lifetime.
Will I get a full head of hair?
This technique redistributes existing, healthy hair. It does not create any new hair. A properly performed Hair Transplant procedure will give enough hair that’ll make you look much better than you were earlier.
How long will it take to grow?
Your transplant will be fully grown approximately 9 months after your All Follicular Unit Mega session.
Will this procedure mean time off from work?
Little or no time off from work is required. But if you are sensitive about how you will look during the days immediately following, you can wear a hat, or, if that’s not possible in your work environment, we recommend beginning the process just before your holidays.
How will the surgery affect me when I return to work the following day?
For the first twenty- four hours, there will be a strip of bandage around the head. After that, you will be able to remove the bandage and shampoo your hair as usual. If you have the surgery done on the hairline, the small scabs will remain for seven to ten days. After approximately six weeks, the areas where the grafts were transplanted are barely visible.
Is the procedure painful?
No, with the proper technique in application of anesthesia it is not painful. Most patients watch a movie or take a nap while we work. Afterwards, they tell us that during the procedure they felt no pain. Any discomfort they feel afterwards is usually very temporary and nearly always minimal. Approximately 25% of patients elect to take pain relieving pills during the following 1-2 days.
Is the procedure dangerous?
No. It is a minor surface surgery, literally only skin deep, and one of the safest surgical procedures ever performed. You are under the care of qualified medical staff at all times.
Does the pre-existing hair adjacent to transplanted hair shed?
Pre-existing hair adjacent to the transplanted grafts may shed, giving a thinner look, but hair will begin to grow back within a few months. This temporary thinning of pre-existing hair is called Telogen Effluvia. Unfortunately there is a time lag between this increased thinning of pre- existing hair and re-growth of transplanted hair.
How long does it take for the transplanted hair to grow out enough to fill in the balding area?
Usually it takes three to four months for the hair to grow out. After that it will grow about half an inch per month which is the same rate as the donor hair. Initial hair quality is usually very thin, like baby hair. Then, it becomes coarser over time. Sometimes the initial hair is curlier, and then it straightens in about one year. The color of the initial hair may also be darker and later will be lightened by the sun.
