10 Frequently Asked Questions On Hair Transplantation
1 – How soon will my hair start growing?

2 – Will ı ever loose my planted hair?
In the first month after the operation you may loose, both the planted and the existing hair.
This is completely normal because during the operation your skin and the existing hair roots are damaged and this irritation will cause hair loss. However soon both yopur existing hair and the planted hair will start growing stronger than before. So, yes you will have some hair loss but this is normal and it will grow back thicker and healthier.
