The percentage of hair transplants that result in failure can be said to be low in percentage provided the patient is in good health, follows the pre-and post-operative instructions outlined by the doctor, and that the most ideal hair transplant method is selected. When a hair transplant procedure is performed by an experienced physician and a professional team the results will ineluctably look natural.

Obtaining good results from hair transplantation depends on correct planning. We can explain “correct planning” as the determination of hairline so as to be in harmony with the patient’s facial lines. However, the hair quality of the patient and the hair density in the donor area are also important factors affecting the results of the procedure. In the first years of practice, hair transplantation procedures could result in an unnatural and pluggy look. Nowadays, hair transplantation is carried out with the Soft FUE and DHI techniques, which both stand out as the most modern hair transplantation methods.
