Nowadays, both men and women are facing problems regarding hair loss. That’s why the treatment of hair transplantation is introduced. But here the question is that how many hair transplants can a single person have? This can be possible when the hair density is not desirable to the patient, then the patient adds new follicles into the existing grafts. But the main point is that firstly wait for visible changes after a first hair transplant and if there is less density of hair occur, then the person should do second surgery after one year of the initial one.

Hair Density

It is possible to have a second hair transplant if you have less hair density even after the first surgery. Furthermore, sometimes the bald area has less dense hair than another area of natural hair. This is not a wonderful thing that patients can do more than one hair transplant but have a gap between first and second surgery. Moreover, it has a natural and real outcome when the experts take the donor hair follicles from the back of the head and then implant these follicles on the large front area of the head. But at that time, the expert is not confirmed whether you need a more hair transplant or not. But after seeing some progression, this will be completely informed about the condition or progress of the hair follicles.

When a man reaches his teens or twenties, at that time he has approximately, 100,000 hairs on his head. Men decide to do a hair transplant when he lost half of his hairs from his head. At that moment, he decides to do a hair transplant and take some other action for his maintenance. It is not considered a normal thing if your hair growth is approximately 2500 to 4000 hairs and it must increase day by day for reaching 10,000 hairs. If this is not possible then the scalp area looks patchy. It is not possible that just 2500 to 400 hairs cover the larger area of your head and it looks like normal hair. This needs a second hair transplant when your hair growth ceased one more time and need to do more sessions. This show that the issue of less hair density can be resolved only by the more hair transplant. This also clear us that patient can do one or more hair transplant whenever he needs.

Hair Transplants Are Not a One Time Procedure

Hair transplantation is not a one-time procedure. Many studies suggest that we cannot get a normal hair look by just doing one session. This is not possible to be achieved. But if the condition of the patient’s hair is not bad and if he has fewer hair loss issues. Then in this condition, only one surgery can resolve your issue of balding. Sometimes, we see that people connect with the doctors online and then discuss with them the condition. The doctors or experts listen to them and suggest them a second hair transplant if they need to do. Sometimes, the patient loses his natural hair after thinning of hair. The donor area where follicles are implanted, do not get bald but the other surrounding area gets affected. This gives the pluggy look to the patient and then he decides to get the second surgery on another area of the head that is becoming bald.

Multiple transplantations depend on the donor area

In a single, approximately 4000 grafts can be harvested. It cannot be exceeding from this limit. But in a normal estimation, a normal person’s hair growth is about 10,000 hairs. So this means that this implanting of the follicle in the first session is not enough then the patient requires another hair transplant for getting the natural look. From above this discussion, we can have concluded that the patients can do multiple hair transplants after a single session but each session has a gap of one year.
