How long do hair transplants take?
People who ask ‘How much does a hair transplant cost?’ are typically curious about how long a hair transplant procedure takes too. The duration of a hair transplant depends on the amount of hair to graft, but on average, it takes about four to eight hours. Because it is an invasive procedure, not everyone is a suitable candidate for the surgery. Multiple assessments are often required before a doctor can give their patient a go signal for a hair transplant.
If you are hesitant to undergo surgery or if the cost of a hair transplant is too expensive for you, you are welcome to ask your Mosh doctor about other available treatments. Your doctor will consider various factors to get a better grasp on your situation, such as your medical history, genetic factors, and side effects you may have experienced with previous hair treatments you’ve tried, if any.
This information enables your doctor to give you tailored advice and even recommend a customised hair treatment plan if it is the best course of action for you.
Does it take long for hair transplants to heal?
A common question people who are interested in a hair transplant ask besides the hair transplant cost is ‘how do hair transplants work?’
There are different hair transplant techniques, but they all involve removing parts of the scalp with active hair growth and grafting them onto the scalp’s problem areas. Not all hair transplants are successful, but all those who undergo the surgery must heal for quite some time, typically up to nine months.
Those considering hair transplants should talk to their doctors about the risks and benefits of the procedure to weigh if it’s truly worth the hair transplant cost as well as their time, effort, and health.
At Mosh, it’s easier to consult a doctor about whether a hair transplant is the best hair treatment for you – whether through text, call, or video chat. You may opt to fill out our questionnaire, and a Mosh doctor will reach out to you about your situation.
Depending on your desired results and what your situation requires, your doctor may or may not recommend a personalised hair treatment plan. The plan may include prescribed medications if needed. You are free to accept or reject your doctor’s proposed solution. If you agree to take their prescribed treatment products, they can be delivered discreetly to your doorstep anywhere in Australia.
Can I use hair products after getting hair transplant surgery?
Hair transplant surgeons usually advise their patients on certain medications that they should take before and after the procedure, especially during the healing phase. Because the scalp may be sore and prone to infections after the hair transplant, it is crucial for patients to consult their doctors about any hair products they plan to use.
In some cases, mild shampoos and conditioners can be used a few days post-surgery and mousses, creams, and gels around two weeks after surgery. However, never use a hair product on a newly transplanted scalp without your doctor’s approval.
