Hair Transplant Questions and Answers

The following Hair Transplant questions are asked by real people like you. The answers are provided by board-certified doctors or qualified medical providers who meet our exacting standards.

Your hair growth cycle determines how fast your new hair will grow back. The hair growth cycle involves a resting phase (telogen) which applies to newly transplanted hair as well. 4 to 6 weeks after the hair transplant, shock hair loss occurs. Within 2-3 months, the newly transplanted hair starts growing back and in 4 to 6 months, about 40% to 60% of the hair regrows. The new hairs might be thin but will gradually grow thicker. In general, the hair growth cycle takes about 12 months and sometimes (mostly in women) 18 months after a hair transplant.

There are five techniques of hair transplant:
• FIT or FUE method involves isolating and removing individual follicles from the donor area and transplanting them in the balding area.
• FUT technique is a common procedure during which a thin strip of skin is removed from the back of the head, cut into pieces, and transplanted as individual follicles.
• The SUT method involves using fully automated devices.
• The BHT method uses an area of the body as the donor area, instead of the back of the head.
• The micro-fit or MFIT method is the latest type of the FIT procedure using more sophisticated tools.

FUE and FUT or a combination of both are the most prevalent methods that are used for hair restoration. To learn more about the two techniques and how they differ, please read our article on FUE vs FUT hair transplant.

After evaluating your hairs, the medical team can guarantee the results of the procedure.That is, your new hairs will grow in 12 months. The successful outcome of the procedure will maintain for as many years as the surgeon suggests based on your donor hair follicles and your individual circumstances. If you start to lose your new hair before the time suggested by your surgeon, you may return to the clinic for a secondary hair transplantation surgery free of charge.

The procedure might take between 4 to 8 hours based on the technique used by the medical team.

For a hair restoration procedure, you should stay in Iran for at least 3 to 5 days.

The mesotherapy procedure is recommended for those who, due to inadequate donor area or weak hair growth, may not be a candidate for hair transplant, yet. Also, people with thinning hair can benefit from mesotherapy.

During the FUT procedure, a scar might be left on the back of the head. But it will be sufficiently hidden underneath your hair. Moreover, our handpicked hair transplant specialists are exceptionally renowned for implementing techniques that significantly lower the risk of scarring.

If you have a moderate to high-density donor hair area, the success rate for the procedure is more than 70%.

The only area on your head that might need shaving is the recipient area. The donor section of your scalp might need slight cutting with the FIT method. With the FUT method, however, the surgery can be performed without you being required to shorten your hair.

No. As the surgery is performed using local anesthesia, you should not feel any pain or discomfort during the surgery. In fact, you might be fast asleep while the procedure is being carried out.

Nose surgeries are your best option. A nose surgery won’t affect hair transplant procedure and results. You can have a nose job in the same trip that you have hair transplant in.

Generally speaking, this is not recommended. You can have a hair transplant about a year after your facial surgery.

Depending on the healing process that varies among people, these scars will fill with scar tissue to some extent. In most cases, the scarring fades away gradually and will be almost invisible.

This technique utilizes a certain implanter device that implants the follicles in the recipient area. In Iran, this method is growing in popularity.
