How Long After Hair Transplant Can Grafts Fall Out? Dr. Bernstein answers a frequently-asked question about caring for your scalp after your hair transplant.

In this video clip, Dr. Bernstein discusses his medical background, how he became a hair restoration physician, and what inspired him to develop follicular unit transplantation.

This study determined exactly how long it takes after a hair transplant for the follicular unit grafts to be securely anchored in the recipient area, so that they cannot be dislodged. This is important information for patients in managing the post-op care after a hair restoration procedure.

In Part 1 of our two-video series on Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), Dr. Bernstein is seen in consultation with a patient in preparation of his hair transplant procedure. In FUT, follicular unit grafts are harvested from the back and sides of the scalp through a long, thin donor strip. Dr. Bernstein reviews with the patient the target number of grafts to be harvested and how he arrived at that number. Next, he goes over the aesthetic plan for the transplant and how the patient will be able to groom his hair when the transplant has matured. Sedatives are administered and the patient’s vital signs and blood oxygen are recorded.

Dr. Bernstein and a patient were featured on “Today” with Matt Lauer. The segment, called “Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow”, discussed hair transplantation and hair transplant repair procedures and was part of a three-part series on hair loss.
