Why my hair is not growing after the hair transplant operation

When a hair transplant result doesn’t satisfy a patient, it raises the question of why the hair is not growing after the hair transplant operation. There can be various reasons for it. These reasons can fall under 2 main categories:

Firstly it could be an issue of incorrect extracting. As it is known, hair transplantation operation consists of several stages. The first stage is the part where the roots are collected. Any problem at this stage will result in the failure of the entire operation.

Size matters

The extraction part involves the use of a micromotor device called a Handpiece. On the tip of this device, there is a disposable punch. This is called the ethylene apparatus. This punch attachment has different sizes. It varies from 0.6 mm to 0.9 mm. These sizes should be determined by the doctors. Punch selection suitable for each patient is important. The doctor should examine the skin and root structure of the hair before the operation. The entire extraction stage should be carried out by the doctor. Grafts should be collected very carefully without causing damage.

Skin quality matters

The second very important factor can be skin quality. Hair transplant results may vary completely even in twin siblings. It is true that genetics plays an important role in our skin and hair follicle structure, but lifestyle choices, alcohol consumption, smoking, unhealthy diet, and past illnesses also play a role. A healthy lifestyle before and after the hair transplant helps with the results. Your skin will benefit from eating plenty of green vegetables and fruits as well as consuming good amounts of water.

In conclusion, a successful hair transplant depends on the doctor who is hand on at every stage of the procedure as well as the patient’s health and good habits. This emphasises the important point which is choosing the right clinic with operating doctors and equipment.
