A second hair transplant is a procedure that is done at least six months after the first one. The goal of this second transplant is to get the best results possible. Typically, one session is sufficient for some patients to achieve satisfactory results. However, additional hair transplantation may be required to cover all of the bold areas, add density to your hairline, or, in some cases, correct problems caused by incorrect hair transplantation and achieve a more natural and fuller look.
Some patients are concerned that a second procedure will harm or damage the grafts implanted during the first session. Of course, because the results of the hair transplant are permanent, the new grafts will not fall out. Nonetheless, the first hair transplant is performed to achieve the best possible result by using a safe number of grafts from your donor area, and sometimes this number is insufficient to provide you with the desired result.
As previously stated, a single operation may not be sufficient to achieve a rich density or satisfactory hair transplant results, in which case patients may seek the assistance of a second hair surgery.
Many patients may want a second hair transplant for density in their transplanted area or to cover the crown that could not be closed in the first hair session after the first hair transplant. Patients may have continued to lose their natural hair due to genetic reasons, and therefore, they may request a second hair transplant to achieve greater density and thickness.
How many times can you have a hair transplant? After seeing the results of your first transplant, you may feel the need for a second session. Before considering another hair transplant, consult with your doctor to determine when you should have a second session and whether you are eligible for a second hair treatment (this will depend on your scalp laxity and the quality of your donor area).
Second hair transplant results may give the ultimate touch for permanent solutions. Patients may wonder why a second hair transplant cannot be performed immediately after the first. At Asmed, we generally advise patients to wait at least 6 months before scheduling a second procedure. The reason for the lengthy wait is that the doctor will assess the need for a second fue hair transplant and the appropriate number of grafts based on the outcome and proper healing of your donor area.
