Hair loss can happen at any age, eventually leading to baldness. Indeed, for men, this can knock their confidence, and while it can start as a receding hairline or crown thinning, it can develop the fear of going entirely bald.

This is why many men are exploring the idea of a hair transplant. This is said to be the way to eliminate baldness, giving you thicker and fuller hair again.  You can restore your youth and confidence through natural results.

But, if you are new to the idea of a hair transplant, you might have one concern. Does this not just prolong the inevitable? Will you eventually go bald again even after this type of treatment? Here is a guide on what you can expect.

The Results are Permanent

The process of a hair transplant means that the results are supposed to be permanent. Indeed, there are factors that will play a part in whether it is permanent for you. For example, the success of the transplant, what your diet is like and how well you take care of your new hair. But, when you choose this treatment, the results are considered permanent. So, people can enjoy their hair transplants for a lifetime.

If you want to understand how hair transplants are considered permanent, it is important to know about the process of the surgery. This can help you get how they can be a long-term success. For example, you can get to know about DHI hair transplant from Dr Yaman. His website details how this surgery works. We are also going to summarize below the general procedure.

You Provide a Donor Area

The first step of a hair transplant is locating a donor area. This is going to be somewhere from your head where you have healthy and plenty of hair follicles. They are extracted from this donor area, and the surgery involves implanting them into the desired area. In simple terms, you are taking hair follicles from one part of the head and moving them to an area that is experiencing hair thinning or baldness.

The donor area is often going to be a part of the scalp that is not affected by balding. For example, this can be the sides or back of the scalp. The surgeon is going to decide on the best place for getting hair follicles. Indeed, these areas often possess the thickest hair and can help achieve natural and long-lasting results.

Being Aware of Shock Loss

There is a process you have to know about if you are thinking about getting a hair transplant. We are talking about shock loss. This is a natural reaction from the hair follicles, but it is one that can give you a fright if you are not expecting it. For example, if you have not been alerted to this by your surgeon, you might believe that the hair transplant has not worked for you and that you are going bald again.

So, shock loss is when the hair starts to fall out. This happens as a form of protection, and it can happen in the first three months. The duration of shock loss can be different for each person. But, it is not something that should worry you. Instead, know that it is normal and that the hair will start to grow back after this. This shedding can start quickly and be over quickly. For others, shock loss might take longer. Just know that it is not an indication of the success of the treatment. It is just part of the process.

Tips for Better Hair Transplant Results

Know that there are some things you can do to promote great, long-lasting results from a hair transplant. Indeed, they could make a difference in achieving the thicker and fuller hairstyle you are looking for. So, here are some tips you can follow.

Enjoy a Healthy Diet

Of course, a healthy diet is key to good hair growth. When your body gets the right nutrients, it is going to allow the hair to grow thick and fuller. So, after your hair transplant, you want to ensure you are following a healthy diet. In particular, try to enjoy more anti-oxidant foods, such as fruit. In particular, you want to consume biotin, which is great for hair growth. You can always ask your surgeon for diet recommendations, which can help you get started with healthy eating.

Avoid Smoking and Alcohol

During the healing process, you do not want to do anything that will slow it down. Two things that can have this effect are smoking and drinking alcohol. Indeed, it is best not to take the risk and avoid both of these things while your hair transplant is healing. Generally, it is recommended that you quit smoking a few months before your transplant so you are not tempted to have a few In addition, cutting down and avoiding alcohol is necessary for the first few months. Ideally, you want to stop drinking for longer than this to achieve healthy results.
