Hair transplantation is a method preferred by people with hair loss problems. However, there is a lot of information pollution about hair transplantation procedure, success rates and effects. For this reason, it is very important to have the right information about hair transplantation and to do detailed research before making a decision.

What is hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a surgical intervention to regrow hair that has become sparse or completely lost due to hair loss. Hair transplantation is based on the principle of taking the person’s own hair follicles and transplanting them to the balding area.

What are the Success Rates?

The success rate after hair transplantation refers to the rate of hair regrowth. The success rate may vary depending on many factors. These factors include the patient’s lifestyle, genetic structure, how the hair transplantation procedure is performed, the surgeon’s experience, the patient’s degree of hair loss and post-hair transplant care.

What are the Factors Affecting Success Rates?

Among the most important factors affecting success rates are the experience of the surgeon and the correct way of hair transplantation. In addition, factors such as the patient’s lifestyle, genetic structure, degree of hair loss and post-hair transplant care can also affect success rates.

What should be the care after hair transplantation?

After the hair transplantation procedure, the patient should carefully care for a certain period of time. This care should be done in accordance with the instructions specified by the surgeon. In this process, the patient is advised not to wash his/her hair and not to touch the scalp. It is also recommended that the patient avoid heavy exercise and protect from sunlight for a certain period of time. Mild pain and swelling are normal for a few days after the procedure. However, in case of severe pain or inflammation, a doctor should be consulted. In the post-procedure period, hair regrowth may take several months and this period may vary from person to person. After hair transplantation, it is also important that the patient adopts a healthy lifestyle and cares for his/her hair regularly.

What is the Success Rate of Hair Transplantation?

The success rate of hair transplantation depends on many factors. These factors include the patient’s genetic structure, the degree of hair loss, the surgeon’s experience, how the hair transplantation procedure is performed, the patient’s lifestyle and post-hair transplant care. In addition, the technology and materials used during the procedure may also affect the success rate.

In hair transplantation, the experience of the surgeon and the correct execution of the hair transplantation procedure are among the most important factors. An expert surgeon performs hair transplantation by making an appropriate planning according to the cause of hair loss and the degree of hair loss of the patient. Correct planning increases the success rate of the procedure.

The patient’s lifestyle is also an important factor affecting the success rate. Smoking, drinking alcohol and unhealthy diet may decrease the success rate of hair transplantation. Therefore, patients are recommended to adopt a healthy lifestyle before hair transplantation.

In the period after the hair transplantation procedure, proper care of the patients is a factor affecting the success rate. A certain period of time after hair transplantation is a sensitive period and patients should care in accordance with the instructions specified by the surgeon. During this period, patients are advised not to wash their hair, avoid heavy exercises and protect themselves from sunlight. Lack of proper care may reduce the success rate of the procedure.

How Does the Use of FUE and FUT Techniques in Hair Transplantation Affect the Success Rate?

With the widespread use of FUE technique after 2009, an increase in the success rate is observed. This is due to the fact that FUE is an easier and more successful procedure than FUT.

The two main techniques used for hair transplantation are FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). Both methods affect the success rate of hair transplantation and the preferred method may vary depending on the patient’s hair loss and hair structure.

The FUE technique performs the removal and transplantation of individual hair follicles. This method can help the hair follicles to be less damaged and provide a more natural appearance. FUE method can also be preferred with no scarring after the procedure and shorter recovery time. However, this method may take longer and have a higher cost.

The FUT technique involves taking hair follicles in a strip and then transplanting them into the scalp. This method allows for more hair transplantation in a shorter time and can be performed at a lower cost. However, this method may result in scarring and a longer recovery period after the procedure.

In transplants performed in a competent hair transplantation centre, the retention rate of grafts is between 85%-95%.

Therefore, which method is preferred is determined according to the patient’s hair structure, hair loss status, hair transplantation need, budget and personal preferences. In both methods, the experience of the surgeon who will perform the procedure, the technology and materials used, the patient’s lifestyle and post-procedure care are also factors affecting the success rate. Therefore, it is important to make a detailed evaluation before the hair transplantation procedure and to determine the appropriate method.

What are the Points to Consider When Determining the Success Rate in Hair Transplantation?

First of all, 3 points should be taken into consideration when determining the success rate:

  1. Wounds that can be clearly distinguished by the eye should not occur on the scalp of the person
  2. The person should be satisfied with the results of the procedure and the hair should have a natural appearance
  3. The person should not encounter serious health problems such as infection at the end of the procedure

Before the hair transplantation procedure, it is important to have a detailed consultation with the doctor who will perform the procedure and to get accurate information about the success rate of the procedure.

 Some points to be considered when determining the success rate for hair transplantation are as follows:

  1. Surgeon’s experience: Since hair transplantation is a surgical procedure, the experience and experience of the surgeon is extremely important. The fact that the surgeon who will perform the procedure is an expert and experienced in hair transplantation increases the success of the procedure.
  2. The condition of the donor area: The quality and number of hairs to be used as donor for hair transplantation also affect the success rate. Better results are obtained when healthy hair follicles are used.
  3. Hair loss status: In patients who are in an advanced stage of hair loss, the success rate of hair transplantation may be lower. The patient’s hair loss status should be evaluated in detail before the procedure.
  4. Post-procedure care: After the hair transplantation procedure, the patient’s proper care of the hair for a certain period of time is one of the factors affecting the success rate.
  5. Detailed evaluation before the procedure: Before the hair transplantation procedure, factors such as the patient’s hair structure, hair loss status, hair transplantation needs and personal preferences should be taken into consideration and the most suitable method for the procedure should be determined.
  6. Technological facilities: Technological facilities used for hair transplantation are an important factor affecting the success rate of the procedure. The quality and modernity of the equipment used during the procedure positively affects the results of the procedure.
  7. Patient’s lifestyle: The patient’s lifestyle after hair transplantation is also one of the factors affecting the success rate. Habits of the patient such as smoking and alcohol consumption may adversely affect the healing process after the procedure.

The success rate can be increased by taking these factors into consideration, choosing the right hair transplantation method and providing the right care after the procedure.

What is the Loss Rate of Transplanted Hair in Hair Transplantation? What should be an efficient hair transplantation rate?

In hair transplantation, the percentage of the transplanted hair that will fall out may vary from person to person. In general, approximately 10-30 per cent of the transplanted hair may fall out in the first 2-3 weeks. However, stronger and permanent hair will grow instead of these hairs.

The rate of hair loss may vary depending on the hair transplantation method used, the experience of the surgeon, the quality of the transplanted hair and the patient’s hair loss condition. For this reason, in line with the doctor’s recommendations after the hair transplantation procedure, it can be ensured that the hair loss is minimised by taking proper care of your hair in the post-procedure period.

It is not very easy to achieve 100% success in hair transplantation success rate. For an efficient hair transplantation procedure, it is important that 80 per cent of the transplanted hair survives and continues. On the other hand, approximately 10 per cent of the transplanted hair continues to fall out throughout your life. This is an expected process. Therefore, healthy and high quality hair follicles taken from the donor area should be used. In addition, proper care after hair transplantation and following the doctor’s recommendations are among the factors that ensure the survival and continuity of the transplanted hair.

Can a Failed Hair Transplant Be Corrected?

If the hair transplantation process fails because the transplanted hair does not give the desired result or does not reach sufficient density, correction can be performed. However, how successful the correction process will be depends primarily on the cause of the failed hair transplantation and how many hair follicles survive.

During the correction process, doctors can use several methods by analysing why the transplanted hair follicles are dead and what was done wrong during the hair transplantation process, adopting a different approach from the first hair transplantation process. Repeating the hair transplantation procedure, reorganising the hair can be counted among these. If there are enough hair follicles in the donor area, doctors can take additional hair follicles from this area and fill the gaps caused by the failed hair transplantation procedure.

However, the success rate after the correction procedure may not be as high as the first hair transplantation procedure. Therefore, it is recommended to make a proper planning before the hair transplantation procedure and to work with an experienced hair transplant specialist to achieve the best result.
