Is it possible to loose transplanted hair?


Recommended Posts

I met a guy who told me that two of his friends who has had a hair transplant has started loosing their transplanted hair. He said that the DHT in the scalp is much higher than in the sides and when this donor hair comes into the scalp it cant handle the high DHT either.

 

Is this true? Never heard of this before.

*Once u move that tissue forward, u r stilldealing with DHT resistant follicles in so far as they were,originally at the back. That is the grrst miracle upon which HTs ...eh...bloomed. Of courede, hair can shrink, even from the back, cause some people get that, but the move from the south coast to the north doesnt change the accent

you can lose hair for many reasons, and the answer is in fact yes you can lose transplanted hair

go dense or go home

Yes, it is possible.

 

However, it is unlikely in the overwhelming majority of transplanted hairs assuming they are taken from the DHT resistant zones. Most FUT HTs involve a strip pretty low on the back of the head so it is not a big risk of loosing transplanted hair. Some doctors performed FUE HTs where they scatter the dots all around the head to keep the donor area looking thicker and this can sometimes cause some hairs being transplanted that are in fact likely to fall out from DHT in the future.

 

There are a lot of factors that have to be considered (e.g. meds, FUT/FUE, harvesting area, genetics/physiology, and so on) when discussing this topic so there is not simple answer. But the basic answer is yes, with a lot of fine print. If a HT is performed correctly then this is not typically among even the top 5 concerns of patients.
