Dr. Gorn Hair Clinic

Have you ever wondered whether, when we face the issues of hair loss, thinning hair, or baldness to the extent that we resort to hair transplant, these problems might recur after the procedure? Is it truly the case that hair transplant is a definitive treatment that eliminates our old concerns without requiring further worry? Today, let us seek a clear and definitive answer to this question.

The answer is that it can either be definitive or not, depending on the individual case and the unique physiology of each patient.

In cases where the hair transplant is "not conclusive"

  1. For those who undergo Hair Transplant 

    Addressing hair loss and thinning hair due to genetics and male hormones (MPHL, FPHL) in the progressive type, where the condition continues even after hair transplant. This condition arises from hair follicle cells in the receding hairline and crown areas, which are genetically programmed to shrink due to hereditary genes and male hormones inherited from our ancestors. This genetic influence causes the hair follicles in the scalp to become smaller, and the hair they produce becomes thinner and shorter, leading to hair loss and thinning, which can eventually result in baldness.

    In such cases, while undergoing hair transplant, the transplanted hair follicle cells remain intact. However, post-surgery, these transplanted hair follicle cells may continue to fall out. You may notice that the areas not transplanted start to thin, and the hair becomes smaller, reflecting the original condition prior to the surgery. This is because the underlying cause has not been addressed.

  2. For those individuals with other factors that disturb the hair follicle cells

    For those who may experience disruptions in hair follicle cells either before or after undergoing hair transplant surgery, which can result from various factors such as emotional conditions like severe accumulated sadness or various physical conditions including anemia, influenza, thyroid disorders, or even certain medications like cholesterol-lowering drugs, for instance. These factors play a role in disrupting the growth of hair follicle cells, leading to hair loss.

    In such cases, the physician may need to consider continuous care and treatment post-permanent hair transplant surgery. This may include:

    -Oral medication

    -Topical solutions or drops

    -And/or other alternative methods popularly used, such as injecting cell-stimulating agents like Autologous Hair Cell Growth Factor from blood components or cells from the patient’s own scalp. In some cases, these may be obtained through scientific synthesis (Mesotherapy), among other methods.

    It is imperative to consult with a physician to consider the appropriate treatment approach after undergoing permanent hair transplant surgery, to determine the most suitable additional treatment method.

In cases where the hair transplant is "conclusive"

  1. For those who undergo hair transplant to address hair loss and thinning in specific narrow areas.

    In cases where the donor area is small, such as from minor scars or eyebrow transplants, the survival rate of transplanted hair is higher. Hence, continuous treatment is unnecessary. Patients need only follow up with the doctor’s appointments as scheduled.

  2. For individuals undergoing hair transplant to address issues of hair loss and thinning due to genetic factors and male hormones (MPHL, FPHL), the Non-Progressive Type refers to the absence of genetic hair loss conditions following the hair transplant procedure.
    First, let us once again understand the matter of hair loss and thinning due to genetics and male hormones (MPHL, FPHL), commonly referred to as genetic hair thinning or hair loss caused by heredity (androgenetic alopecia, AGA). This condition predominantly occurs in men. While the symptoms typically do not adversely affect physical health, they may negatively impact the mental well-being of those afflicted. In cases where hair transplant is performed and no further treatment is required, this pertains to the type where hair follicle cells are not increasingly damaged, or the condition remains stable without further progression (Non-Progressive Type). This means that there is no genetic or hormonal hair loss after the transplant. For such cases, a hair transplant can be considered a complete solution.


Regardless of whether the treatment is considered complete, it is essential to consult a specialist for a diagnosis to ascertain the cause and analyze the appropriate post-transplant care. This assessment will determine whether ongoing care is necessary or if no further treatment is required. It may suffice to follow up with the doctor as scheduled to monitor post-surgical progress and review proper care practices.
