In the first three months after your hair transplant surgery, you will experience and observe the falling out of your transplanted hair.

The surgeons generally claim that hair transplant surgery is successful in about 95 to 98 percent of the cases. And even if that may be an exaggeration, the success rate is definitely not below 90 percent. But, the success rate of a hair transplant surgery largely depends on multiple factors such as expectations of the patients, availability of hair follicles for transplanting, skills and experience of the doctor, technology used, post-surgery care, and a few other procedure factors. Though these may vary from a case to case basis, hair transplant surgeries generally tend to be successful and give satisfactory results.

For some, a single procedure may be enough to get permanent and satisfactory results, while others may require multiple sessions to get a head full of hair. But some may require touch-up sessions to maintain the hair volume of their heads. Like natural hair, transplanted hair have the tendency to fall and shed, and such hair thinning may also require you to go for follow-up sessions.
