Do Hair Transplant Last Forever
Hair loss, which is the problem of many men today, has been one of the issues that medical scientists have been looking for a solution for many years for answer the question: “Do Hair Transplant Last Forever?”
Which I have been following closely since 2011, in the field of surgical and medical treatments. I will tell you about my general experience in this field where I have been for more than 10 years and ask “Do Hair Transplant Last Forever?” I will try to answer your question.
About 30-40 years ago, men and especially women who were performing artists were solving their hair problems with wigs. With the advancement of technology and industry, wigs have been made more suitable, more compatible and more natural for human hair, but due to the difficulty of use, they did not fully meet the expectation. At the beginning of these difficulties, even a good wig needs care at least once a month, the discomfort of the part under the wig due to sweating, especially in summer, the removal and installation of these wigs while taking a shower reduced the use of the wig quickly.
The difficulties experienced in wigs led people with hair problems to more natural and medical solutions, and the first hair transplantation technique was discovered: FUT technique hair transplantation. This technique was the process of taking a piece of scalp from the donor area, then suturing that area and cutting the grafts on the removed piece and transferring it to the area needed. This method was not very sustainable due to dressing, stitch removal and very large scars in the operation area, the planted hair did not look natural and gave a grass man appearance after the hair transplant surgery, and newer hair transplant techniques were started to be researched and finally the FUE technique was found. this technique did not have large scars, sutures, postoperative care difficulties and was much more accepted. Over the years, the FUE technique has also been developed, newer instruments have been discovered, and the success rate of hair transplant surgeries has risen to 95%.
It has changed in the medical treatments applied together with the FUE technique. Mesotherapy applied to the hairy tissue became the subject of marketing under different names. Commercial enterprises far from the health sector, which started to market PRP treatment as stem cell therapy, found new names every year, used the same treatment methods under different names in their marketing activities, and unfortunately, they started to market different treatment methods with different names, the effect of which has not been proven in hair treatments.
Today, proven hair treatment methods other than surgical methods are limited and because of their side effects, hair transplantation is preferred by patients because it is more permanent and has less side effects.
Frequently asked “do hair transplant forever?” Unfortunately, we answer yes to this question, not forever, but maybe for a long time. We also hope that as a result of the studies, non-surgical treatments will be a solution to our hair problems with a treatment method that will be found in the near future.
