Will Second Hair Transplant Session be Different than First Session?

Generally in a second procedure, a patient can expect less swelling post-up although the reason for this is not known. There will also generally be less shedding in the second hair transplant session since the weak miniaturized hair that will be shed is often lost in the first session and the previously transplanted hair is generally more resistant to shedding. In a second session we generally, but not always, transplant fewer numbers of grafts. For those who are bald, the second hair restoration is sometimes less dramatic than the first since the second is used for fine tuning rather than taking the person from completely bald to having hair.
