Time Needed for Hair Transplant Results, and How to Limit Shock Loss and Stop Future Hair Loss


Transplanted Hairs Falling Out 5-10 Days Post
Surgery (FUT)? Date of transplant: 4th of December. 2000 grafts – 3500 hairs. Is this a normality
that the hairs are falling out this early in? I’ve read that the hairs usually shed
after 3-4 weeks time. I might have managed to dislodge a couple of grafts, but no more.
Have the hairs anchored by this time? Certain areas are entirely hairless and scab less.
Thus far, I’ve paid my doctor 2-3 visits ever since the hair transplant was carried out.
He tells me there is nothing to worry about and that everything looks just fine. Thanks,
in advance. Thank you for your question! You submitted your question stating that several
of your transplanted hairs falling out 5-10 days after surgery and is this normal. And
that you have gone back to your doctor several times and your doctor reassuring you. As a specialist in hair loss treatment and
we have been in a remarkable leadership position with a technology we developed called Hair
Regeneration which I will discuss more on detail. I can share with you a lot about the
experience of hair transplant is and what it means when people loose grafts. You see,
hair transplant is literally the movement of an entire hair follicle into a small slit.
Usually, what happens is the skin heals and tissue heals well enough that majority of
the time, the dermal papilla or the part of the hair necessary for growth can be intact
even if a grafts continues to fall out. The general term used for grafts falling out
during this early post-operative period is called shock loss. Shock loss happens to both
the grafts as well as the adjacent hairs. Shock loss can happen to the hair grafts as
well as the adjacent hairs that are subjected to the swelling and trauma of the actual procedure. In our practice, we have been doing our transplants
with a material called extracellular matrix and platelet-rich plasma and we’ve seen a
significant improvement in the rate of shock loss so that this difficult transition period
is a little bit easier. But even with advanced healing technology, we still have certain
period which you can call the doldrums where there’s a whole nothing going on. The existing
hairs can look a little thinner, the grafts are not growing and you don’t see the grafts
anymore and you wonder somewhere in the early 4-6 month period if you lost all the grafts.
It’s a little bit a nail biting period but I can tell you that the hair is remarkably
resilient. We know this especially from the field of laser hair removal where people come
for multiple laser hair treatments to actually kill a hair where you really don’t kill the
hair but suppress growth for a long period of time. Also, several studies have demonstrated
that hairs are transplanted, even if the dermal papilla, the base is not intact and the middle
part of the hairs or the hair shaft is transplanted, a hair still can grow. The reality about hair is that there is so
much about it we don’t know. When we developed our Hair Regeneration method, we looked at
the basic science research to help us understand this better and it is remarkable how much
we do know and how much there is left to know and you probably will always hear periodically
every few months of a new method of potentially in the future, hair cloning but clearly we
are not there yet. Another thing that I would suggest considering
when I looked at your photo, I noticed that the level of receding in your frontal hairline,
you may want to discuss with your doctor the use of some type of oral medications such
as finasteride even at the current time a lot are nervous about finasteride. In our
practice, many people come to us for Hair Regeneration treatment which is a non-surgical
injection that helps reverse the thinning process of hair through a method we believe
is the restoration of critical stem cells as part of wound healing mechanism that really
stops the thinning process so many people who had a transplant and would try to avoid
a second transplant actually benefit because we are keeping the hairs. That’s one of the
things that we have certainly been gratified about is that traditional hair transplant
philosophy is you restore to try to keep the appearance of hairs in areas which are actively
healing. So invariable, in a person who wants to get one transplant will need a second transplant,
possible a third or even a fourth depending how much donor they have. Unfortunately, there’s
a limit of how much donor you do have. Hair Regeneration has been able to balance
out our hair transplant very well so that we are able not only improve our transplant
procedure but also prevent the progression and actually thicken and reverse thinning
hair. Something that would help you understand something
about the physiology of hair. so essentially you just have to wait this out. You have to
follow-up with your doctor and for most of our patients we tell them that the final results
is somewhere in a year to 15 months. There is a lot of variability between the hair growth
cycle of individuals and so some people grow faster, some people grow slower but ultimately,
but the one year point, you are close to the 90% zone of recovery but we have seen in 15
months people the combination of the loss from shock where there are grafts or the native
hairs eventually synchronizes to the point where the growth and density actually match
to give you a better sense of the final result. So I hope that was helpful, I wish you the
best of luck and thank you for your question!
