    Before performing your hair transplant, it is essential to know several points. 

    We help you ask the right questions during your briefing to avoid a failed hair transplant. Here are the top five reasons why hair transplants fail:

    #1 Not being an ideal candidate for hair transplantation

    hair transplant can be life-changing, but are you a good candidate? 

    Before the operation, it is essential to obtain a detailed medical history. 

    During the medical examination, the doctor performs various tests and special procedures to evaluate indicators like classification and diagnosis of hair loss.

    #2 The medical team’s lack of experience

    FUE (Follicular unit extraction) or DHI (or CHOI implanter pen) hair transplant methods are meticulous procedures that require considerable perseverance. It takes a lot of time and effort to master these techniques. 

    During the operation, the placement of the graft is one of the most important stages of hair transplant and plays a crucial role in the final appearance of the hair. Only experienced doctors are familiar with this type of operation. 

    Less experienced doctors tend to make mistakes by harvesting the wrong donor area. If they take a follicular pool obtained via an incorrect extraction, the result will be missed.

    #3 Inadequate postoperative care

    Postoperative care is as important as the operation itself. As part of the hair implant surgery, the doctor will provide aftercare instructions as well as complete information regarding the post-operative treatment to be carried out during the days and weeks to come. 

    It is common for some patients to suffer from severe scabs around the hair shaft. Scratching this area or improperly washing the hair can have a detrimental effect on the survival of the graft as well as the final result.

    #4 Disregard for your well-being or your comfort

    It is recommended to conduct research to assess the credibility of hair transplant clinics. A hair transplant clinic that cares about financial or commercial aspects will not attach importance to your well-being, or to your health. 

    These clinics, which prioritize their own business interests, are often distinguished by “numbers” rather than “quality”.

    #5 Lack of knowledge of the process

    Hair transplantation is only the first step in the procedure. It is essential to consider the postoperative phase, a process spread over a longer period. 

    Some people tend to get impatient and jump to conclusions, declaring that the operation failed before the process was completed, and giving no chance for hair growth.
