Hair transplantation involves the collection of healthy grafts from the back of the scalp( I.e. Where there are healthy thick hair). The article attempts to provide answers by assessing hair transplant after 10 years.

There are different numbers of grafts that can be transplanted depending on the severity of the hair loss. some of them are 1000 grafts and 2000 grafts hair transplant.

These healthy grafts, through different surgical procedures, are transplanted to areas of the scalp, with little or no hair.

After the transplanted grafts are healed, they would bring forth new hair. Thus, covering bald areas.

Hair transplant surgeries are,  relatively safe and very effective. But, are they permanent solutions? Can they withstand the test of time?


When hair transplantation is carried out in the right hospital, under a qualified surgeon and closely monitored afterwards. The following should occur;

  • Grafts become secured: After a successful hair transplant, grafts should , “ Stick properly,” in recipient areas.

This should take about seven (7) to fourteen (14) days.


  • Transplanted grafts should heal and produce hair: If the surgery is carried out, successfully. The implanted grafts should heal between six (6) to twelve (12) months. After which, hair would begin to grow and cover up bald areas.


  • There should be no infection or complications: If patients adhere to doctors instructions and avail themselves for regular check up. Infections and other possible complications should not occur.

When grafts become secured, heals, does not become infested. And the initial cause of hair loss is not genetic( E.g. one of the main causes of  Male and female pattern baldness is heredity).

Hair transplant surgeries are, relatively safe. But, are also prone to complications, just like other surgical procedures.

One of the most common complication after this procedure, is infection. This could arise due to negligence on the path of the patients, doctors or when Injuries after surgery are not well taken care off.


injuries from hair transplant
Injuries may occur
a thick crust that formulates on the areas of the scalp where the hair was implanted.



If infections occur and are left untreated or not given proper medical attention. Over time, other signs and symptoms like fever, heart palpitations, dizziness, difficult breathing could emanate from this.

Within a period of ten years or less, the untreated infection should have gotten into the bloodstream. This would, eventually, lead to death.

Another problem with this procedure, is that although it provides a solution to hair loss. It does not deal with the underlying causes.

A very good example is the male and female pattern baldness. This is the most common cause of hair loss in men and women.

Genetic composition, chemotherapy, age, certain medications, heavy menstrual flow, are few factors responsible for this conditions.

To the best of my knowledge, hair transplantation only deals with hair loss, not the factors responsible for it.

Thus, even if a successful hair transplant is carried out and hair covers up bald areas. Within ten years, most, if not all new grown hair should be lost.


In situations where problems and complications do not arise. Transplanted hairs should be permanent, right?

To the best of my knowledge,  there’s no definite answer to that question.

In my personal opinion, transplanted hair are not permanent. Reasons for this belief,  are discussed in this article.
