What is the success rate of hair transplant?

Since 2009, there has been an increase in the success rate of hair transplants with the spread of the FUE technique. This is because the FUE is a lot easier to perform than the FUT and offers a greater chance of success.

We can say that the risk of failure is rather low in a hair transplant performed under the supervision of specialist. At a licensed hair transplant center, the success rate of the transplanted grafts ranges from 85% to 95%.

The chances of success are considerably increased by several factors including strictly following the sterilization rules, using graft-nourishing solutions such as HypoThermosol, designating a good frontal hairline, application by a well-trained team with an expertise in hair transplantation, and patient’s correctly following medical advice.

However, about 10% of the transplanted hair continues to shed throughout your life. This is an expected and natural process.

According to many doctors, the loss of more than 15% of the transplanted hair throughout life shows that the procedure proves ineffective.

The answers to the following three questions will determine the success rate:

  • Did any serious health problems such as infections occur following the procedure?

If the answers to all of these questions are “no”, then we can say that the transplant is successful.
