FUE, short for Follicular Hair Extraction, is probably the most performed hair transplantation procedure in the aesthetic world. FUE procedures are performed in every corner of the world and it’s also considered the best in terms of price and performance ratio. People who experience severe hair loss in early ages mostly prefer FUE procedures for hair transplantation because it’s very famous for its natural results seen after the procedures. However, people who experience hair loss are mostly obsessive and concerned people. For example, most hair transplant candidates, especially those who undergo FUE procedures, complain about hair shed after FUE.
It is very hard to call a hair transplant job a failure. You can’t be so sure about the success of your hair transplant unless you spent some time after your procedure. Doctors say that you will need 9 months to fully recover your newly transplanted hair strands. You will definitely experience hair shed during your early days of hair transplantation recovery. The reason why your new hair strands fall after your FUE procedure is associated with your immune system. Your immune system may target your hair follicles for some reason.
Will My Hair Grow Back?
Your transplanted hair follicles are strong ones and do not completely fall because of male pattern baldness or attacks from your immune system. During your body’s adaptation to your new hair follicles, your lost hair will grow from the beginning.
You may still be exposed to such attacks coming from your immune system. Your full hair transplant recovery takes at least 7 months. This means that you will see your real hair density after that time. Day by day, your hair density will increase as your immune system stops targeting your hair follicles.
Most surgeons know this and suggest full-shave hair transplant methods to their patients. Since your hair will already experience this temporary loss, it’s pointless to keep your existing long hair during procedures, they say.
