CAPILLARY GRAFTING WITH Leaders in hair transplants
postoperative follow-up in Mexico or distance
We know from experience that patients often have many concerns after the hair transplant procedure, which is natural after suffering a problem such as alopecia which is always advisable to respond to promptly.
One of the doubts that arise is regarding when is the right time to perform a hair transplant; each case is particular, so the answer to this question is determined by the characteristics of each individual; contrary to what is usually believed age is not a conclusive factor, while it is whether the patient does not have pathologies and has a donor area with density.
Specialists recommend intervening patients who are already in their thirties, because this allows more reliable studies of future hair loss, however there is no specific age to undergo a hair transplant..
Now, it is not advisable to perform a hair transplant before the age of 25, because hair loss has not stabilized at this age, which makes it impossible to determine how hair loss will evolve.
The greatest difficulty that can occur in an early intervention is that the patient continues to lose hair in areas where hair transplant was not performed, and that after the transplant they have continued to suffer from alopecia. For these cases doctors choose to treat patients with drugs such as minoxidil or finasteride, to stop hair loss, once this has been achieved it is possible to perform any intervention.
Anyway, any person who attends a specialized clinic must undergo different tests that determine the type of alopecia and what is causing it, this diagnosis is the roadmap to decide what is the procedure indicated for each case.
We could think that after the study, deciding what is the best procedure to end alopecia and undergoing the intervention, the patient’s concerns have disappeared, but nothing’s further from reality, it is in this phase where more doubts arise, and It is natural, especially because each case is different.
The behavior in hair growth is determined by the genetic information of each patient, since it is the same as it was before extracting the grafted follicle, and therefore will have the same behavior in the receiving area, this is what makes it in cases where the hair grows faster and in others slower.
The scalp undergoes a healing process after the operation, in which each transplanted follicle sits in its new position. In the first weeks there is a natural loss of hair, which should not distress the patient, because the grafted bulb remains and begins to develop new and strong hair.
In 90 days the patient will begin to see the birth of new and strengthened follicles that have sprung from the grafts, is the phase known medically as anagen. From that moment you will see a certain normality in the hair and the results that will be achieved.
It will not be until the fourth month that you notice how the hair grows with complete normality. Ten months after the intervention was performed, the patient will see what their new appearance will be.
Between the sixth and ninth month there is an accelerated hair growth. One year after the procedure, the grafts have sprouted correctly and the patient will finally be able to see the final results of the hair transplant.
