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.
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 started loosing my hair about 5 years ago and I had to do something about it. FUE was the method that I thought would be the best(so called scarless.not true,you get a lot of small scars).To be fair the doctor I picked did as good job as FUE could offer but the method does not give you enough hair,one year later I have had another FUE procedure... view more
Very personable and professional. My discussion with Dr. Brett Bolton was both friendly and informative and through my research and experience believe him to be the best in his field. His staff was also very professional and friendly and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a hair transplant!
Expectations were well communicated. Premeeting was truly consultative. All my questions were answered. From there they were a class act. Highly recommend going with Josh's lodging arrangement. I give them five stars.
I had a H.T. with Dr. Brett Bolton about 18 mths ago and had a really great experience there- very happy with the results, especially with his ability to help conceal/blend a terrible, previous HT surgery I had with another doctor 20 years ago. It was such a difference, just wish I had gone to him the first time around. I'm getting ready to... view more
I visited dr. Bolton like many about my concerns about my thinning hair. I visited other hair restoration, but felt the most comfortable with Dr. Brett Bolton, josh and his professional staff. He was honest, didn't sugar coat anything which I appreciated. I had surgery in August of 2015. Couldn't be happier with my results. Best decision I ever... view more
I had been experiencing hair loss for the past 10 years, my mid Twenties. I had been in denial of this fact, and family and friends, trying to be nice I guess, would confirm I was "crazy, you're not going bald!". I had researched hair transplants for years, and even had consultations with local hair doctors in my area.; Including the doctor who... view more

From the moment I walked into Dr. Brett Bolton's office, I had a good feeling. Meeting with Josh and Dr. Brett Bolton for the first time only reinforced this feeling. They both gave me their undivided attention and answered all my questions. I was at a low point in my life as far as self-confidence due to my hair loss (which had seemingly sped up... view more
From the start, speaking with Josh was incredibly helpful. Dr. Brett Bolton really stood out from the rest and I flew in for the procedure in 2010. Three years later I am still happy.
Everyone in the office here really helped me to not be as nervous about my surgery as I was coming in. I was surrounded by positive attitudes, and felt very welcome in the friendly environment. Dr. Brett Bolton has an awesome team of nurses and of course Dr. Brett Bolton was the best!! He is so easy to make friends with, and I enjoyed just being... view more
I had dreaded the surgery for years, but I knew it was necessary if I wanted to repair my personal appearance. I saw two different surgeons before choosing Dr. Brett Bolton. Price was never the issue, I just wanted to chose a doctor that I felt understood my personal needs, and one that would be able to execute that result. I felt comfortable with... view more
My experience was marvelous. I am so happy with my results and the decision to go forth and do the hair transplant. I would highly recommend Doctor Bolton to everyone i know. At first i was a tad weary, but the staff makes you feel right at home, and all my doubts were shortly thrown out.
I had a wonderful experience my worries were put to ease by Dr. Brett Bolton and his staff!
I had my first procedure with Dr.Bolton's associate Dr.Huebner 5 months ago. I'm incredibly happy with my results so far. I can't believe how natural my hairline and density look so early. No one knew I had hair loss from always wearing a hat I have no signs of doing a procedure. I can not find my any scar ! The entire GreatHairTransplants staff... view more
