Sometimes there are patients who have done their hair transplantation in Kolkata who exhibit poor hair growth after a hair transplant surgery. These concerned patients put up messages in various hair transplant forums anxious to know whether their results would be suboptimal even after investing quite a large sum of money. So, let us look into the causes of the same.
Period from hair transplantation surgery
Hair transplant surgery is not magical and you would not get hair growth the very next month or so. The hairs which are transplanted go into a shock phase and are shed off following transplant. New hairs start growing after a couple of weeks. At first, these hairs are thin and sparse. Gradually, after a few cycles these thicken and produce the final result. Therefore, one should wait out a period of 1-1.5 years before finally assessing the result of a hair transplant surgery. Also, it is important to know that hairs grow in crops and that not all hairs would start growing at the same time so the density would gradually increase.
Poor Hair Growth even after 1 year
Many patients are slow growers and their hairs come out at a slower rate compared to others. However, if the hair growth is not appropriate even after a year then it is a real cause for concern. So, what might be the causes for poor hair growth after a hair transplant surgery? Let us analyse the same.
One of the causes of poor hair growth is inappropriate placement of the hair follicles. If the follicles are spaced far apart then the hair growth would appear poor, this is a common mistake made by inexperienced surgeons.
Poor technique is the most common cause of poor hair growth. During follicle harvesting especially with the FUE technique, there might be injury and transection of the follicles which, if implanted, would lead to poor hair growth. That is why, a surgeon must be fully conversant in all of the techniques of hair transplant surgery to ensure good results. The depth of the hair follicles inserted should be appropriate because a too deep or a too superficial implantation of hair follicles would not result in a good hair growth.
The patient needs to take proper care after a hair transplant surgery. Inadvertent injury to the hair follicles after a surgery from scratching or rubbing those areas would lead to loss of follicles and inappropriate hair growth.
The training of the surgeon and the way he performs a procedure is of critical importance in the outcome of a hair transplant surgery.
