Question #4 – Are the results permanent?

This is another common question and concern for people seeking hair transplantation as a solution to thinning hair and loss of hair. Providing that an individual is a candidate, the results are most typically permanent for the remainder of one’s life. This is because the hair in the back area of the head is resistant to the DHT hormone that most commonly causes hairs in other areas to be lost. This DHT-resistant hair maintains that resistance for the rest of your life no matter where it is located on the head. This means that it is also permanent when it is transplanted to the new areas.

    I’ve only had my procedure approximately 1 year ago but yeah I’d say it’s permanent. I’ve shaved it down for when I go do my military weekends then 2 weeks later I’m back to a wonderful full growth up top. The real-life problem now is to find a barber.
