If you want to have a hair transplant surgery, you must be under tremendous pressure as what will be the outcome of the hair transplant surgery, will your looks improve after the hair transplant, will you feel pain after or during the hair transplant surgery, and the most important question is, is there any chances that your hair transplant fails, right!


Now, before discussing any factors of hair transplant failure, the first thing is to educate yourself more about the hair transplant procedure, so you get more aware of the situation and be ready for the possible outcomes after the hair transplant procedure.


Our Analysis

We analyzed data from patients who opted for hair transplant surgery or hair restoration surgery and found certain reasons those were common in between the patients who were not satisfied with the end results.


Reasons we found for Hair Transplant Failure are:

Inexperience Surgeon

If you want to get a hair transplant or hair restoration treatment, the first thing that you should consider is finding out an experienced hair transplant or hair restoration surgeon. Reason being with years of experience, expertise comes along and the chances of failure become zero.

As hair transplant procedure involves decision like selecting a donor area from where the hair will be harvested and grafted to the new receptor area, an inexperienced hair transplant surgeon might commit a mistake in the selection of proper donor area. This could lead to complete or partial baldness of the donor area after the harvest.

If your hair transplant surgeon is inexperienced, he can also commit mistakes in grafting the hairs that will lead to dis-satisfactory results, as you might see chunks of hair growth in small areas, with areas that will have no hair growth at all.


Post Surgery Care

After your hair transplant surgery, you surgeon must provide you proper guidelines, as all the do’s and don’ts that you need to follow. It was found in certain cases, the hair transplant surgeons didn’t provide proper hygiene guidelines. Due to which the final outcome of the hair graft done was very poor. In few cases, serious infections are also seen.


Are you an Ideal Candidate for Hair Transplant?

Getting your hairs back after hair transplant surgery is an amazing thing that can happen to a person, but every person is not an ideal candidate for this procedure, so it would be best to find out with your hair transplant surgeon if you are a suitable candidate or not.

Your doctor might perform certain medical examinations, will also ask you about your medical history or any surgeries that you might have had earlier. Then he will let you know the actual situation, as candidates having diabetes or other related disease or over aged candidate might take more time to recover from the hair transplant surgery.


False promises by Hair Transplant Clinics

Before opting for a hair transplant clinic it is best to find out whether the clinic is credible or not, as we found in our analysis that there are a lot of clinics who say that their hair transplant cost is cheaper than other clinics will charge or they provide more hair grafts than any other clinic which is ok, but a hair transplant clinic that only talks in terms of Monterey benefits rather than the quality of their hair transplant are suspicions, as after a hair transplant surgery, there is no way that you can count the number of grafts done.



If you have considered the above-mentioned points in your research, before opting for a hair transplant specialist, the chances of hair transplant failure will be minimum. The thing is you need to find out hair transplant clinic that has experienced hair transplant surgeon who can answer all your questions.
