Should I expect to lose my native hair immediately after a hair transplant

A perfectly conducted hair transplant is the best solution for most of the hair loss concerns. If you have undergone a hair transplant procedure, approximately 2 weeks after that you will tend to lose the newly transplanted hair, as it is the part of hair recycle. But, if you experience excessive shedding of the native (non-transplanted) hair, there are several possibilities for this.

It is a part of normal hair cycles

It is a possibility that the native hair shedding occurs due to the normal hair cycles. A regular hair goes through a cycle of hair growth, which consists of anagen, catagen and telogen phases.

  • The anagen phase is also called as an “Active phase”, which lasts for 2-5 years. In this phase, the hair grows 2-3 cm every 28 days.
  • The catagen phase is also known as a transitional phase. When a hair completes its anagen phase, it stays in catagen phase for 3-4 weeks before going into the telogen or resting phase.
  • The telogen phase (resting phase) is the one in which hair shedding happens, it lasts for 80-100 days. Approximately 6-8% of all hair is in this phase. During this phase, you will tend to lose about 50-100 hair.

 You are suffering from hereditary hair loss

One of the types of hair loss that you may experience right after a hair transplant surgery is hereditary hair loss. This type of hair loss occurs because you are genetically prone to hair loss. While the one region of the scalp is treated with a hair transplant, the rest of the other scalp is still affected by male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, which causes hair loss.

Hair transplant experts in Dubai suggest to not undergo a hair transplant if you are suffering from premature baldness. As in this case, you will experience hair shed even after undergoing a hair transplant, ending up in an unnatural look.

It is highly recommended that if you are suffering from hair loss, don’t immediately go for a hair transplant and try PRP therapy for about 2-3 months. PRP therapy in Dubai is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that boosts your hair growth with naturally obtained serum. It also helps in restoring a great amount of hair.
