Does Hair Grafting Work? 

Yes, hair grafting is an effective procedure for restoring hair on the scalp in areas where there is hair thinning or baldness. Modern hair transplants, or hair graft treatments, are incredibly advanced, and the tools and technology used today have resulted in phenomenally high rates of successful hair regrowth for men and women experiencing hair loss. 

For many men and women dealing with hair loss, hair grafts offer the key to restoring a natural-looking head of hair. A growing number of individuals are choosing hair grafts to regrow their hair, boosting their confidence and self-esteem along the way.

Based on current data, a hair transplant performed by an experienced surgeon, at a reputable hair graft clinic, has nearly a 100% success rate.

There are several factors that will ensure a high success rate of hair transplant — a key one being how well implanted hair grafts take root and thrive. Overall your chances of hair transplant success are higher if you take action to prevent further hair loss.

How Does Hair Grafting Work? 

Hair grafting involves transplanting by hand individual hair follicles from areas of abundant growth (usually the back or sides of the head) to areas on the scalp with thinning or balding issues. 

The hair transplant surgical procedure takes hair follicles from the donor site and moves them one by one to the treatment site; each hair graft is precisely inserted into the scalp in the problem area experiencing thinning hair or balding for example.

Once transplanted, hair follicles will continue to grow naturally, restoring fuller and natural-looking hair over time. On average you should see full hair restoration in less than one year.

Is Hair Grafting Permanent? 

Yes, hair grafting is a permanent solution for hair loss. Grafted hair follicles are strategically transplanted by hand into problem areas (i.e., areas with hair loss like bald spots or a thinning hairline), seamlessly integrating with the natural hair growth cycle in that area.

Within a few months, these grafted hair follicles settle and continue to grow in the same way as the surrounding native hair, becoming an indistinguishable part of the natural hair and growth pattern. This results in permanent and natural hair regrowth in the treated areas.

By transplanting healthy hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another, it stimulates natural hair growth in the treatment area. In a short amount of time, the grafted hair follicles continue to grow and produce hair, resulting in fuller and more natural-looking hair.

How Long Do Hair Grafts Last? 

The results from a hair graft procedure are typically long-lasting, providing natural-looking hair for many years or even a lifetime. Final results from hair graft surgery can take somewhere between 6 to 12 months.

But once the healing process is complete, the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow hair that will fill out the bald patches or hair thinning areas on the scalp. This newly transplanted hair keeps its natural growth, staying vibrant and thriving as the years go by!

How Many Hair Grafts Are Needed For Crown? 

Restoring hair loss to the crown of the head typically can involve anywhere from 800 to 2,500 hair grafts. The best way to determine how many hair grafts for the crown are needed is to have a hair graft consultation with a hair loss expert like Este Medical

Can Hair Grafts Fall Out? 

Can you lose grafts after hair transplant? After a hair graft procedure, the transplanted hair follicles experience your hair’s natural growth cycle, which includes a phase of shedding.

This hair shedding is a normal part of the cycle, and doesn't necessarily indicate graft failure. The transplanted hair may shed within a few weeks to a couple of months post-surgery, but this shedding phase is temporary and normal. Afterward, new hair growth typically begins, leading to more permanent hair regrowth.

The good news is that with an experienced hair transplant surgeon at a reputable hair loss clinic, along with customised hair transplant aftercare, a hair transplant can last forever.

How Long After Hair Transplant Are Grafts Secure? 

Hair grafts are typically secure within the first two weeks following a transplant surgery. During this hair graft surgery recovery period, it's crucial to handle the treated area gently to ensure the grafts remain undisturbed and firmly anchored.

As healing progresses, the grafts become more secure and integrated into the scalp, contributing to the long-term success of the transplant.

How Many Hair Grafts Do I Need? 

Determining the number of hair grafts needed for a successful hair transplant requires a personalised evaluation. Factors like the extent of hair loss, hair density, the desired hairline, and the quality of donor hair vary for each person. A professional hair graft restoration consultation assesses these factors, ensuring an accurate estimation of the required grafts needed. 

Este Medical's personalised hair graft assessments ensure a precise treatment plan, determining the necessary grafts for optimal outcomes tailored to each individual's unique hair loss needs.
