How do you plan for multiple hair transplant procedures?


Video Transcript

So you’re considering getting a hair transplant and you heard that multiple procedures may be necessary. You’re wondering how are these procedures planned and when should you be considering them? Well, I want to walk you through the way our office approaches this. Now multiple procedures should be planned out from the very first consultation you have. Remember in that first procedure, we’re going to want to give you the results you want, but then protect your future so you always look natural. So in our office, we don’t always ask how many grafts you need for a procedure, but how many graphs we need to preserve.

Remember the hair loss process is progressive. Just because you get your first hair transplant procedure doesn’t mean your hair loss is going to stop. It’s going to progress. And when it does so, you might develop some unnaturality. Therefore, we like procedures two, three, maybe four to be there for us to correct any unnaturality you have. Whether that be 1,000 grafts to 6,000 grafts, during your first consultation, we should have a good impression of what that is so we can tell you what you should plan for in your next couple procedures.

Only after your hair loss is complete should you start doing transplantations to adjust areas to make them perfect. That means adding more density or hiking forward the hairline, getting it just the way you want it. Therefore, during your first consultation, we’re going to tell you how many grafts you should have for that first procedure. We’re also going to tell you how many grafts you should preserve to make sure you don’t have any unnatural in the future. If you happen to have more grafts left or that technology improves, you can do lower finesse procedures in the future to get exactly what you want.
