The psychological process of hair transplantation

All those who opt that make the decision to undergo a hair transplant go through a process characterized by several steps that we can describe in this way:


The first basic phase of the process that leads to the decision to undergo a hair transplant is the awareness of having a problem of baldness. Often people think of surgical intervention when there is a visible problem of hair loss. Sometimes this is pointed out by a friend or family member but it is not uncommon when we are ourselves to notice after a careful examination in the mirror. It is normal that at first we wonder if this fall is only temporary and that we ask for an opinion to our hairdresser.

Research process

Once you realize that you have a baldness problem you start looking for solutions to solve the problem. Initially you are inclined to test some cosmetic products to mask the situation but often you realize that the only solution is the hair transplantation. You begin to consult different doctors and transplant centers. Although the price and geographical distance are two important factors for most patients these should never be the only criteria for choice. The surgeon one chooses should be the one that best meets our aesthetic criteria and is able to provide natural and dense results.

The Stressful Waiting Period

After choosing a clinic to have surgery with, the stressful waiting period begins. Some people feel anxious and seek reassurance from loved ones and/or friends that they have made the right choice. This process begins weeks before surgery and ends when you finally have surgery and realize how unnecessary these worries were.

The Happiness Phase

The hair transplant was performed in a few hours. You feel tired but satisfied because you are finally aware that you have done what was necessary to solve the problem that was nagging at you. Often we cannot take our eyes off the thousands of crusts that we see on our head, hoping that each of them corresponds to a new hair that will grow. This phase of happiness and excitement lasts about a month.

Hesitation phase

After a month after the transplant, the little hairs are bound to fall out and with them we lose the look we so enjoyed in the first few weeks post-surgery. Although your doctor has explained to you that this would happen and has told you many times that you should not get discouraged, losing those little hairs that you saw poking out of your scalp after surgery can make you sad and worried. If this happens there is nothing better than to contact your surgeon for reassurance.

Waiting Phase

Although you know that no need to have expectations at least until 3 months post-surgery still continue to check your hair in front of the mirror waiting for some positive signs. Around the third and fourth month there is a first improvement but often it is not significant and you are still far from having a satisfactory look.

Satisfaction phase

This period is the one between six and nine months post-surgery. The new hair is more visible and the coverage effect increases day by day. People begin to notice your positive changes on a physical and psychological level. You begin to be proud that you made the right choice and reveal the name of the surgeon who operated on you to friends who suffer from baldness. What makes you even happier is that people in your social circle cannot tell that you have undergone hair transplantation, as your result is completely natural and the improvements have been gradual.

Phase of rising expectations

It has been a year or more since your hair transplant and you are happy with your new hair. The cpositive change on a physical and psychological level is evident and allows you to have new opportunities in your social and work life. Often, however, a question pops into your thoughts, “should I undergo a new surgery to increase density”?

This is something you need to discuss with your surgeon, studying a plan of action in the long term that also takes into account a possible pharmacological therapy to maintain your native hair for the future.
