Is Hair Transplant Suitable Only For Men?

This is the very first misconception about hair transplant. As it is associated with treating male pattern baldness, most people believe it to be a treatment for men. But, the reality is that men and women have different balding patterns. Both FUT and FUE techniques are suitable both for men and women.

Is It True That There Is No Need For Further Treatments?

This is again a false belief. Most people believe that no further treatment is needed after a hair transplant. But, hair fall continues to happen even after a transplant. Only appropriate medical treatment will prevent hair fall after transplantation.

Does The Scalp And Body Hair Transplant Have The Same Result?

The fact is that scalp hair and body hair is different. So, surgeons generally prefer hair from the back of the head as donor area as the growth will be dense in this area. But, if there is not enough root, body hair is chosen. But, it is not a viable option as it leaves scars.

Is It True That One Can Get Immediate Results After A Hair Transplant?

The reality is that transplanted hair generally falls off within three weeks. However, the roots will not stop growing. Once the supply of blood to the root is established, the supply will last forever. The time it takes for the roots to grow is generally 60 days and it takes around nine to twelve months for the utmost growth.

Can Older People Undergo Hair Transplantation?

The most common thinking is that hair transplantation is just for younger people. So, people in their 40s and 50s prevent themselves from opting for transplantation treatment. The thing to remember is that age does not have any association with the procedure.

Will Transplant Work at Its Best Only In Young People?

The common belief is that the younger you get the hair transplant treatment, better will be the outcome. But, experts say that the reality is opposite. If you start losing hair at a very young, chances are that you will have to undergo multiple sittings to maintain the results from the HT procedures.

Does Hair Transplant Means Getting Hair From Somebody?

People think hair transplant as other organ transplantation. But, hair transplantation is different. Only hair from your body will help with your hair transplant treatment. If you take hair from other people, your body will not accept it.

Is It Possible To Multiply The Hair Outside The Body In A Lab?

No, this is absolutely a misbelief. It is never possible to grow hair outside the body.

Will Washing The Hair After Treatment Affect The Growth?

This is a myth and as against this belief, shampooing of the hair does not come in the way of the growth and other factors after the treatment. In fact, treated area should be kept clean to prevent infections.

Is Hair Transplant Surgery Painful?

Many people have a misbelief that hair transplant surgery is highly painful. But, surgeons generally carry out the procedure after a local anesthesia. So, there will not be any pain.
