Is A Hair Transplant Permanent?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I encourage all of you take a few short minutes to read this article, the question comes up a lot and I would be lying if I said I didn't research this topic when I was researching hair transplants.

Is A Hair Transplant Permanent?


I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

It should be permanent if done right, otherwise surgical error caused shockloss and improper surgical protocols, or unethical surgical impacts and doctor decisions can negatively effect your scalp and quality of life and goals.  Surgeons should listen to patients goals and concerns and not shortchange patients as folks pay top dollar for these procedures.  Surgeons should be honest and not be deceptive nor be dishonest later vs their emails and convos discussed.  Businesses have a duty to follow laws and standards to maintain honest and prevent deceptive tactics.  It can certainly be a pain in the ass if the right parties of power get involved and take steps/actions against certain businesses.  I really hope if a surgeon screws up, they remedy and do whatever it takes to resolve the situation or give a refund.

No. A hair transplant is not permanent. Hair that is transplanted lasts only as long is that hair would have lasted in the area it was taken from. As you get older and your so called safe area begins to thin with age, so will the transplanted hair since it is the same hair that was in the now thinning so called safe area. If anyone tells you not to worry about that because it doesn't happen until you are over 70 or something, don't believe it because it is not necessarily true (and besides, they then just admitted that it's not permanent. Think about that). It is certainly true that some people will pass away before the transplanted hair falls out, but this does not mean that will be true for everyone. If you are in these forums for a while you will see posts from people asking how their donor area looks and you will see responses that their donor looks weak or that they have retro-grade alopecia meaning they have thinning in the "safe" area. How is that possible if that hair is permanent? Many of those posts asking about their donor are from people who are under 40.

Anyone who tells you that transplanted hair is permanent is either misinformed or lying.
