Should I Wait For My Hair To Fall Out For Hair Transplantation?

Now we all know, hair transplantation is the process of replanting the grafts taken from the donor area to the areas where the hair is limited or does not grow at all.

Of course, there are effective treatments for many types of hair loss, but can these treatments stop future hair loss? What do people need to do for permanent results? We asked all our questions to Emphair Hair Transplantation Center:

Is Hair Shedding Only Due to the Effect of DHT Hormone?

hair lossThis is how you should start the topic. If you've noticed that your hair is starting to thin or fall out, you start to think about what's causing it.

Is it stress? Is it a bad diet? Unlucky genetics? Or is it a lifestyle factor that you can correct through behavior change?

In fact, male hair loss is primarily caused by dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male steroid hormone that binds to receptors on your scalp and is responsible for hair loss in genetically susceptible men.

Hair loss and thinning hair, on the other hand, are a normal part of aging, but they can also occur due to a medical condition or trauma to the scalp.

Some people who experience hair loss may also choose to have a hair transplant for reconstructive reasons. In summary, we cannot say that only DHT is responsible.

Where Exactly is the Area We Call The Donor Area?

donor areaIn most cases, we use the side or back of the head as the donor site. However, if we can't find enough roots, we can think of beard hairs under the chin as a last resort.

Using body hair can be helpful for people who don't have enough thick hair on the back and sides of their head.

What are the Success Rates of Hair Transplant from Body Hair?

body hairOne study suggests that removing body or beard hair takes more time and requires more skill than using scalp hair.

However, another study reports that the body and beard can be an “excellent source of hair” for hair transplants.

In our own practice, the important thing here is the patient's condition, as I said, body hair can be considered as a last resort, and the success rate also depends on the skill of the doctor.

Is Hair Transplantation the Only Remedy for Those Who Have Male Pattern Hair Loss?

hair lossHair transplantation is the most effective treatment for restoring hair growth after many causes of hair loss, it is the gold standard.

However, with some tests we do before hair transplantation, we can still investigate whether there is any underlying health problem and give treatments accordingly.

For example, PRP is an extremely effective hair loss treatment method.

Do you Recommend PRP at the Same Time with or After Hair Transplantation?

prpYes, I can say that using FUE and platelet-rich plasma, that is, PRP treatment, increases the success of FUE hair transplantation. Again, we would like to talk about the researches.

In one study, more than 75% hair regrowth was seen after 6 months in all patients in the PRP group, meaning faster improvements in hair density and skin healing compared to the non-PRP group.

PRP can be recommended before or after the evaluation according to the patient's condition.

When Should Hair Transplantation Be Considered?

hair transplantThere is an incorrect intention such as "let my hair fall out completely, then I will have a hair transplant". Please do not wait for your hair to fall out completely for hair transplantation.

Even if you are not considering hair transplantation at that time, we can help you get through this process with hair loss treatments such as supportive drugs and PRP.

While we have great trump cards, why not use it, why should they wear hats and berets all the time, why should they have self-confidence problems?

Is Hair Transplant Permanent?

emphair hair transplant before afterIn most cases, but after a successful hair transplant, people will have a hairy-looking scalp. Our attachments are permanent.

However, they may continue to experience thinning and shedding after the procedure, which may give the hair an unnatural or uneven appearance.

Because even if we have transplanted, 2 to 3% of hair loss may occur as the aging process will come into play.

For this reason, for longer-term results, people should be followed and if they want, 2nd or 3rd hair transplant sessions can be done.
