Although hair loss is a major concern for both men and women, it has to be said that the thought of a hair transplant is even more frightening. This is because, unfortunately, it is linked to an old conception. Until a few years ago, this type of surgical treatment, although resolving, was also extremely painful and invasive.

Those who decided to undergo a transplant were aware of having to follow a procedure that was certainly not easy to bear. Performing a treatment of this type was, therefore, seen as a last resort. But today much has changed.


How hair transplantation has evolved and all there is to know about it

When we talk about hair transplantation we mean, today as in the past, a surgical operation that goes to permanently solve a problem such as hair loss, which could bring with it also psychological problems.

In fact, it is not easy to accept losing one’s hair. One is always embarrassed when this happens and, most of the time, one tends to think that this could alienate loved ones. Although in most cases this is just a mere misperception of the problem, there is a factor that should not be underestimated: without hair, the subject can no longer accept himself.

That is why, especially in such cases, a hair transplant is the solution to having a thick and healthy hair again. But what is there to know before making such an important decision?

There is always a need for clarity.

The first question to be answered is therefore the duration of the hair transplant. Very often the question arises, in fact, as to whether or not this is definitive and long-lasting.

In order to answer this question, one must have a clear idea of what androgenetic alopecia is and the methods of its treatment. It must be understood that a care of the hair allows you to have a better result and prolonged over time.

But that is not all: you must also understand why a hair may miniaturize even shortly after transplantation. When does this happen? In most cases when the transplant has been carried out on a patient who has a genetic sensitivity to DHT even in the donor area, even if partial, who has not previously treated himself and who has no intention of doing so. In this specific case, the transplanted hair could become miniaturized and, therefore, fall out. What happens? The result of the transplantation is cancelled in a short time.

I would like to underline that only a few people out of the total number have this problem, and an accurate preventive specialist visit is the solution to understand if the follicular units in the donor area are immune to DHT or not.

The same happens when the donated bulbs are of poor quality. This explains why one should always rely on professionals to solve this type of problem, allowing a transplant to last as long as possible.

These are, therefore, precautions that must be taken and that serve to maintain the integrity of the result of the transplant itself.
