Four things you didn’t know about hair transplant surgery
4th March 2022
Hair transplants are a common procedure for those suffering from hair loss, but it’s a decision that requires full understanding and shouldn’t be made lightly.
There are different types of hair transplants, including FUE, and Strip FUT. Visit this page of our website for more details on each of the options.
If you think that surgery may be the right path for you, a Farjo advisor will be happy to talk you through the different options available to ensure you make the best decision.
In the meantime, here are four things you may not know about hair transplant surgery.
- It’s unlikely you’ll need just one hair transplant
The average hair transplant patient will need between two and four surgeries in their lifetime.
This is because hair loss is a progressive condition; it doesn’t just stop and correct itself after one treatment.
The transplanted hair from any procedure will stay firmly planted; other areas will likely need attention as time goes on. Keeping this in mind and not expecting a quick all-in-one fix is important for anyone considering the operation.
- Women can have hair transplants
We often get asked if hair transplants can be given to women, as they are commonly perceived as something only used for treating male pattern baldness. But this isn’t the case.
Women may also require a hair transplant for reasons including:
- Female pattern baldness, involving the front hairline
- Hair loss due to burns, trauma, or surgery.
- Traction Alopecia due to tight hairstyles.
If you’re suffering from hair loss or balding, a hair transplant could be a valid option for you, regardless of your gender.
- Hair transplants don’t give immediate results and you will experience shedding
Although hair transplants results are long term, they do not give instant results and it may take more than a year to see the full impact.
During recovery, expect to see newly transplanted hair falling from your head. This does not mean something has gone wrong; it’s simply because the old hair shafts break off, before the implanted hair roots manage to produce new hair follicles.
The real results from a hair transplant are most often seen around eight or nine months after the surgery and can sometimes take more than a year.
- You may experience permanent scarring
Anyone undergoing a hair transplant may suffer from scarring to varying degrees depending on the skill and experience of the surgeon to some extent, but also down to the individual patient’s genetics and healing characteristics. The type of procedure you have chosen or recommended for you will also determine the type of potential scarring you might expect.
Understanding this is important before deciding to proceed. Here at Farjo, we also want to stress the importance of looking after your hair follicles and the remaining hair that you do have through non-surgical treatments, even when you’ve decided to pursue hair transplantation.
During your initial consultation, your hair loss will be assessed and you will be taken through the pros and cons of each of our hair treatment options both surgical and non-surgical so that you are in the best position to make an informed choice.

At first I had some nerves surrounding the procedure, however, these were soon gone when reassured by the professional staff. So much so I came back for a second hair transplant. The procedure was painless and was completed on the same day, allowing for visible results with minimal scarring.
