Hair transplantation: Can you lose hair that has been transplanted?

Hair Loss Hair Transplantation

To answer this frequent question among patients seeking hair transplantation, a couple of factors must be explained in order not to generate false expectations.

It is incorrect to affirm that the transplanted hair will not fall under any circumstances. Yes, it can fall, despite the fact that the entire implant process is done with the aim of avoiding it. The transplanted hair must be permanent since the root of the hair (the hair follicle) remains alive and permanently active, but there are some factors to take into account such as the passage of age or a possible disease, for example.

The transplanted hair is considered to be permanent hair. It works for that, although it is also true that like the non-transplanted hairs on the rest of the head, the transplanted ones can be lost little by little due to aging. They are no strangers to this natural process.

The effect of progressive physiological aging manifests itself at a different rate in each person. This process produces a decrease in hair pigment (that is why gray hair appears) and a progressive atrophy of the hair follicles. So they will gradually decrease throughout life.

How does a hair transplant work?

The hair implant is a systematic and artistic redistribution of the hair follicles. It consists of the introduction of small scalp grafts extracted from the donor area of the patient (the posterior occipital and / or lateral part).

After carefully preparing them under high-resolution microscopy, they are introduced into the bald or sparse areas that would be called receptor areas. By obtaining these grafts from areas that are genetically programmed to always grow, it is achieved that they continue to develop their hair cycles and grow normally.

When it comes to hair transplantation, those hairs that are genetically encoded so as not to fall out are chosen, but that does not exempt them from natural aging. Ultimately, the time in which they are maintained depends on the quality of the hair in the donor area.

Hair loss due to conditions unrelated to the transplant

Among them are the diseases that each patient can have. If any of them require chemotherapy, for example, the usual thing is that the hair falls out. There are some drugs that are more likely to cause hair loss or thinning.

They are Altretamine (Hexalen), Carboplatin (Paraplatin) and Cisplatin (Platinol), among others. In case of need, the patient could also experience the loss of the transplanted hair.
