How to plan for future hair loss before your hair transplant


Many people often wonder about the final long-term outcome after their hair transplant surgery. For example, is it possible to get natural-looking hair after a hair transplant, or will all the transplanted hairs die again after some time?

What to expect with post-procedural hair loss is such a common question that we get asked to deal with, and most of the time, the hair loss situation will depend on how you take care of your transplanted hair and what the post-hair transplant procedures are.

This article will explain which rules you need to follow after your hair transplant procedure to ensure you maintain your new look as perfect as the first day you walked out of our clinic with your brand new hair transplant procedure.

Planning For Future Hair Loss After Your Transplant Procedure

When our clients consult us at Northwestern Hair, one of the things that sets us apart is how we approach your hair restoration process. Of course, we deliver excellent hair replacement procedures according to your needs, but we also consistently conduct hair maintenance for all our clients.

How Our Process Works

Our hair maintenance program begins with your initial consultation at our Chicago-based clinic. Here’s a quick run-through of the two main steps our doctors focus on to help you plan for the long term when you sign up for any of our special hair replacement procedures.

Your Current Hair Loss Situation

The first step in managing your hair loss is for us to evaluate your current situation, discuss your goals and expectations, and create a personalized plan of action for you. While our hair transplant specialists will be looking at parts of your head that look relatively normal, they will mainly focus on other areas where we can see any evidence of miniaturization.

Once we know how much hair we expect you to lose over time, we’ll optimally maintain those transferable grafts in the best way possible to make sure you have enough left for subsequent procedures in the far future.

Getting You Started On Our Maintenance Program

After your procedure, we’ll put you on a tailored maintenance program and work with you on an ongoing basis to ensure that you’re getting the best possible results from your treatment. We understand the unique differences among our clients, so we’ve designed these maintenance therapies to fit your lifestyle and preferences.

Your maintenance procedure could involve anything from topical or oral medications, using a cap three times a week, or giving your hair the rejuvenation it needs with our special PRP sessions. We’ll examine and discuss with you to determine which option best suits your needs and be right there to help you along the way with whichever one you choose.


Remember that it is not uncommon to need more than one hair transplant to get the desired results. However, that’s nothing to worry about at our clinic. When you consult our specialists at Northwestern Hair, our experienced team of transplant surgeons will be there for you during the hair transplant procedure and your recovery period. The result is something that many successful transplants are presently not able to offer, but our hair replacement procedures are now able to do. So now that you have an idea of what to expect from us as soon as your hair starts growing back in, remember to stay active, eat well, and look after yourself.
