Understanding Hair Transplant Results: A Comprehensive Guide

Understanding Hair Transplant Results: A Comprehensive Guide

Hair transplant can be a life-transforming decision, and it’s crucial to delve deeper into understanding the nuances of the procedure. We congratulate you for taking the time to explore and gain insights into this significant step towards regaining confidence and aesthetics.

Just to make you are understanding easier:-

  • We are sharing some cases of similar grades of baldness.
  • They will have almost similar looking results, but the number of grafts & the area covered would be contrastingly different.
  • You will see how the number of grafts changes with the involvement of medicine & its dose.  
  • These facts are logical, honest & involve more than two decades of experience.  

The intent is to help you to get a realistic & lasting solution with minimal health risks. 

However, this information is classified and only some have got access to it. So if you are reading this, consider yourself fortunate.

Patient Case Studies:

Below are several case studies illustrating the impact of different factors on hair transplant results:

Case 1: Ajay

    • Patient Profile: Grade 3 frontal thinning, age 28.
    • Hair Loss: Stable or very slow (No medication initiated).
    • Treatment: 2300 grafts by DSFT method, without medication or PRP sessions.
    • Goal: Merging with existing hair, good density in the lowered hairline, softer hairline for natural looks.

  • 3rd picture: Same patient, 3 months after stopping the medicine (showing ugly hairline, gaps, poor density & coverage), which was the reality of that hair transplant.
  • 4th picture: Same patient after the repair surgery at Satya, where actual skill & numbers were executed.

Case 6 : Nikhi Jaggi                                                      

  • Patient Profile: Diffuse Pattern Alopecia

Case 6 : Amit                                                

  • Patient Profile: Diffuse Pattern Alopecia 
  • Hair loss: Progressive in recent 1 year (so 0.5mg finasteride alternate days added).
  • Treatment: 1800 grafts by FUT technique. 
  • Transplanted area:  front to crawn 

Remember the contribution which is coming through medicine has filled the middle and the crown portion where no transplant was done. And it is also contributing to the frontal portion to the transplant result by increasing the thickness:

  1. By increasing the thickness of pre-existing miniaturise hair.
  2. By increasing the thickness of transplanted hair. 

The effect which you get from the medicine is directly proportional to the dosage of medicine higher that was more would be the effect. 

Important Points to Learn

  1. It is very important to discuss & plan the number of grafts according to the dosage of medicine which will eventually decide the longevity of your results. 
  2. We believe you should only pay for the skill, not for the medical result. 
  3. So if you are consulting a doctor or a clinic for a hair transplant. If this very very important to discuss about micro-dosing of medication & the impact of medicine doses on the number of grafts. 
  4. Higher the dose of medicine, lesser number of grafts will be needed & vice versa. 
  5. If it is not discussed in your consultation upfront, then you are missing out on something very important and probably the clinic which you are consulting is not that trustworthy.
  6. You must ask yourself,  how much faith you can put in those results, when you cannot differentiate between actual hair transplant results & the medicine results.

You will be surprised to see similar results in similar grades of badness but with different graft numbers. Sometimes you will see 3 to 4000 grafts placed in a very small area in grades 2 to 3 or sometimes you will see the same number of grafts covering the entire head.
