Factors Affect Hair Growth After Transplant

Depends upon lot of factors:

  • Technique of graft dessication in FUT
  • Rough handling of graft
  • Prolonged out of body time
  • Sterile folliculitis which might be due to ingrown hairs, foreign body reaction or piggy backed graft insertion
  • Dense placement of grafts more than 50-60 grafts/sq cm leading to ischemia and necrosis of recipient area
  • Unsterile operating theatre conditions
  • Implantation over already existing hairs resulting in shock loss
  • Patient not taking proper post operative care
  • Improper usage of post operative medicines which are essential for growth
  • Grafts aren’t preserved properly
