Hey doc, hows it going? I was reading some of the posts and was wondering if a hair transplant really is completely permanent? Or will that area bald again and another transplant of hair to the same area will be needed? Thanks.
Permanency of the transplanted hair depends upon the donor hair that is used. Since most men never lose the hair in the back of the head (the typical “donor area”), they will not lose the transplanted hairs that are used for transplanting from this area. However, if that donor hair is diseased (alopecia, for example) and a hair transplant is performed, that hair will still fall out, even in its new home elsewhere on your scalp.
