Time Restraints on Second Hair Transplant Procedure

Q:

Are there any constraints on performing a further procedure if required in terms of the time interval and / or the number of grafts that can be harvested within a second procedure which is a) FUT, or b) FUE?

A:

If we need to add density to an already transplanted area we have to wait 6 months following the first hair transplant surgery.  By waiting this minimum of 6 months, we are able to see the complete growth of the recently transplanted hair  from the first hair transplant and thus, we can go in between these hairs to put the new hair.  The number of transplanted grafts in the second procedure is typically a bit less than the first surgery because we remove the scar of the first surgery for the second time.
