    Another thing to consider when examining the success of hair transplants and the permanency of them is what the patient does to promote growth in the months after the surgery. Using products like Rogaine or natural alternatives like Viviscal can do wonders for how thick and strong the transplanted, as well as native, hair will grow.

    Thanks Mike for your experience. I have had the pleasure of seeing Richard Shiell’s patients for the past 6 years since he retired, some transplants dating back to early 1970’s. The vast majority of the work is interpreted by the patient as permanent as it has served them well in boosting their self esteem for so many years until it (mostly) eventually becomes grey and they are at an age when a head of grey thinning hair looks good at their stage in life.
    Obviously the gratfs are a little lonely one they have lost more of their native original hair and if donor permits I sometimes thicken up areas of importance for them if they wish.

    The ageing skin of the scalp does become a less fertile ground for native and transplanted hair with regression of the dermis etc etc which may be why there is some thinning of all scalp hair, but it rarely seems clinically relevant in a cosmetic sense, meaning, it very very occasionally does. Many thanks for the forum Mike, best, Paul.

    There are plenty of helpful better alternatives when making use of combination of natural treatments in a topical style that could greatly increase hair growth. Waxing, compared to taking out, rests and opens the skin pores with the help of it’s warmness and consequently will never increase hair growth because the hair commonly do not fully feel just like they are actually ripped away from your pore. A different ways to appropriately increase hair growth is to be sure that you’re acquiring an sufficient amount of the appropriate vitamins and minerals.
