While grafts can fall out within the first few days after a hair transplant, this is extremely rare. More often, patients will mistake the hair that normally falls out after a transplant for the graft itself. This is because the hair has a little bulb at the bottom of it, but that’s not the follicle; it’s just the root sheath, so it is nothing to be concerned about.
At Bernstein Medical, generally, we don’t perform surgical hair restoration on patients younger than 25. This is because it is difficult to determine if the donor area contains enough stable hair to perform a hair transplant. We advise patients in their late teens and early twenties to first use medication and to postpone surgery until they are at least 25 years old.

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.
