Hair Transplant Fundamentals sheeding after treatment

Hair Loss/Shedding After Hair Transplantation

Whether using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), shedding of transplanted hair or effluvium (medical term) is considered to be a normal after-effect of any hair transplantation surgery, which occurs primarily due to a graft being temporarily stripped of its blood supply. This shedding of transplanted hair usually begins around 1 week post-surgery and continues till about 6 weeks in most cases.

While many patients get worried experiencing shedding of their newly transplanted hair, it is important to remember that this is just a transient phenomenon which will be corrected as the new hairs will begin to grow.

Genetics also plays a key role in determining the amount of hair loss a patient is likely to experience after hair transplantation. Moreover, it has been seen that many patients who undergo a hair transplant surgery at a very early hair loss stage, while having a significant amount of miniaturization, get thinner hair than what they had before the procedure.

At MedLinks, our highly-qualified doctors identify the right candidates for the surgery and then formulate a procedure with enough grafts to provide patients with significant cosmetic benefits, after taking into account hair loss in future and further miniaturization.

Minimizing Shedding after Hair Transplantation

While shedding of hair after a hair transplant surgery is a common phenomenon, there are a number of post-operative treatments which can help patients to minimize this shedding. Medications like finasteride may prevent hair shedding post-surgery and it may also reverse or halt miniaturization in some patients.

Being one of the best hair transplant clinic in Delhi, we ensure that every patient that comes to us undergoes treatment at the right time and the procedure is performed with sufficient number of grafts to minimize the problem of hair loss after hair transplant.
