Hair Problems And Treatment For Men And Women In Boulder, Colorado

Can a Hair Transplant Cause Hair Loss?

A hair transplant in general is a non-evasive procedure that usually only takes a few hours and it is most always performed in an outpatient setting.  The healing phase of the hair transplantation process is generally well received with minimal discomfort.  After hair transplantation most patients will only take pain relieving medicine the first post operative evening following the procedure.   The body is very resilient and most noticeable effects of the procedure are completely cleared up within two weeks from the day of the hair transplantation procedure. 

 What Will Happen to My Existing Hair?

One of the greatest concerns most patients have when seeking hair transplantation is the question about their existing hair. What is going to happen to it? Will they experience permanent hair loss from the hair transplantation procedure?  The answers to these questions vary from patient to patient.  Most patients will have some degree of minor hair loss due to the hair transplantation procedure. This is caused by the incisions that are created to implant hair follicles during the hair transplantation. This hair loss is usually not noticeable and most likely will not cause concern for the patient.

“Hair Shock”

The hair loss that can be most concerning for patients is “shock” hair loss.  The most commonly accepted reason for this type of hair loss following hair transplantation is that the body’s response to trauma from the procedure will put the good hairs (anagen phase) into its resting phase (telogenic phase).  Normally, good hair grows back but if the hair loss becomes permanent it is likely that they were dead hairs (catagen phase) which would have fallen out over time anyway due to genetic hair loss.

Conclusion: Most Hair Loss After Hair Transplantation is Minimal

In general, the chances of a patient experiencing excessive hair loss due to hair transplantation is minimal and should not be a cause for concern.  Keep in mind that most of the hair that is susceptible to shock hair loss is hair that is usually already on its way out genetically. If it is not replaced with a more permanent hair, the patient will be much worse off with their future hair loss! That’s why a hair transplant is the best option for those who wish to improve their overall appearance.

    I was apprehensive going into this but I’m glad I did it! I live in CT near New York City and there are a few places in NYC with good reputations that I had looked into for hair restoration but in the end it was Dr. Bolton that I chose. I had to travel to get the procedure done but I’m completely thrilled with results. Dr. Bolton is great! He...

    Great experience and results! Dr. Bolton and staff are amazing! If you are thinking about getting a hair transplant don’t go anywhere else. Dr. Bolton will give honest expectations and outstanding results. His whole team is great and I couldn’t be happier with my results. I have had a procedure with Bosley and Dr. Bolton blew them away with the...

    My experience with Dr. Bolton and his staff was excellent. I initially had contact with Mike Anticoli who answered many questions I had about my condition and the possible treatment options. Mike was great from start to even today, months after treatment. They both did follow up calls to me after the procedure. Mike was in contact with me daily...

    So far, so good! Had my hair transplant last October. Been in contact with Josh, Dr. Bolton’s correspondent, since day 1. Can’t recommend either of them highly enough. I’m currently only at 5 months but my hairline has already dramatically improved and I’m seeing lots of new hairs popping up. I’ll keep everyone updated as the months progress. I’...

    I had a Max harvest plus procedure with Dr Bolton in October 2020. I had anxiety about the strip being taken out before the procedure, but I can confirm that it does not hurt whatsoever. Dr. B is highly skilled with the scalpel and uses a perfect amount of local anesthetic so there is no discomfort at all when the strip is being taken out. Dr B...

    First let me start off by saying getting a hair transplant is not something anyone should be ashamed of male or female. This like any cosmetic surgery is to help with your self esteem and at the end of the day that's all that matters not someone else's opinion. When you do decide to go on that adventure, please do your research and consider Dr....

    I flew from Montreal (Canada) to have the surgery. Let me tell you that the service was excellent and the surgery went extremely well. The surgery occurred on May first of 2019 (approx. 6000 hairs to lower my hair line). I will post pictures in six months. I've had an excellent service from the whole team. Dr. Bolton and josh gave me their personal...

    The results speak for themselves, and they are absolutely amazing. Many people were sceptical of hair transplants and the results they could achieve. I was one of them. I had already had a FUE transplant (not recommended) done somewhere else a few years ago and didn't get the results I wanted. So, of course, I was even more sceptical than people...

    Four years ago, I had a hair transplant procedure with Bosley in New Orleans. As you can see from the before pictures, it wasn't a huge success. Within a year, I had significantly less hair than I had before the procedure. Last year, I was given Dr. Bolton's name and a glowing recommendation from my hairstylist. I took a chance, made an...
