Hair restoration, also known as hair transplantation, is a surgical procedure that can help to restore hair loss. The transplanted hair follicles are taken from a donor area of the scalp, such as the back or sides, and then implanted in the balding area.

In most cases, hair restoration can last a lifetime. This is because the transplanted hair follicles are genetically programmed to resist male pattern baldness. However, there are a few factors that can affect the lifespan of a hair transplant, including:

  • The patient’s age. Hair loss is more common in men over the age of 40, so hair transplants may not last as long in older patients.
  • The patient’s genetics. Some people are more prone to hair loss than others, even if they have a hair transplant.
  • The quality of the hair transplant procedure. A hair transplant performed by a skilled surgeon is more likely to last longer than a hair transplant performed by a less experienced surgeon.

If you are considering hair restoration, it is important to talk to a qualified surgeon to discuss your individual needs and expectations. A good surgeon can help you to determine if hair restoration is the right option for you and can also give you an estimate of how long your hair transplant is likely to last.
