Frequently Asked Questions about Hair Transplantation

Does transplanted hair fall out again permanently?

The transplanted hair is taken from areas where hair is not affected by Androgenetic Alopecia. In Androgenetic Alopecia, the follicles located in the frontal, top, and occipital areas of the head have receptors that make them vulnerable to dihydrotestosterone, a situation that conditions the
life of the hair follicles. In this type of affected follicle, there is a continuous degradation of the thickness of the hair produced, until its total disappearance, thus understanding the evolution of a dense area of the scalp to a bald area.

In contrast, follicles in the donor area do not have these receptors and therefore always grow strong and vigorous. A selection of these follicles are relocated to combat the bald areas and once transplanted will always grow healthy.

The transplanted hair will have the same behavior as it had in the “original” place, when it falls out a new one will be born in the same place.

Where is the hair taken from?
