Our hair transplant patients are so happy with their results that we are often asked this question:
ow long do I have to wait to have my next hair transplant procedure done?
This has become such a popular question, we decided to write a blog post about it. When it comes to having a second, third, fourth, etc. hair transplant done, we recommend waiting at least 6-12 months from the date of the previous procedure. It is important to allow enough time to pass so that the procedure sites can completely heal. It also takes that same amount of time for the results of the hair transplant to show fully. Those are two things you will want to see when considering another procedure. As you can imagine, the success of your next procedure is going to be greatly influenced by the results of the previous one.
Some people also ask: Is there a limit to how many transplant procedures can a person have? There really is no limit on the number of procedures a person can have; rather, the limit is on the total number of grafts. Generally, the maximum number of grafts recommended for transplants is about 6,000 grafts for most patients. But the number of grafts done per procedure is up to you!
Another question we are frequently asked is: How long does the procedure take?
The length of each procedure varies from patient to patient; however, we typically estimate procedures to take a total of anywhere between 4 to 6 hours. Afterwards, you’ll have the rest of the day to relax and rest!
