After Hair Transplant, Will Scalp Laxity Return to Normal and, if so, How Long After Transplant?January 6th, 2006
Q: After a strip procedure, will the scalps laxity return to normal and how long after the hair transplant does it take?
A: The scalp regains most of its laxity in the first eight months following the hair transplant, but it will continue to loosen slightly after that.
It is interesting that if the scalp is tight prior to surgery, the scalp is less likely to have its full laxity return than in patients who had loose scalps to begin with. With average or loose scalps, there is usually no difference. However, over time, the patient rarely, if ever, notices any permanent tightness unless aggressive procedures have been performed or procedures such as scalp reductions and lifts.Related Posts:
