I read a lot about people having 2-3 HTs in their lifetime but always just assumed they had more than 1 because they weren’t on fin. Is this a safe assumption? I want to eventually have an FUE because I just don’t like my natural temporal points (fin and min havent fixed them yet, and they probably won’t) but I want to be done after just 1 because I’m on fin. Is this naïve or realistic?
Yes, for many reasons. For example:
you have very fine hair and the transplanted hair is too thin, more is needed,
You progress in your balding.
The surgeon did not cover enough of your bald head to address your needs in the first surgery
The transplant produced shock loss and you need more hair
Many hair transplant patients end up getting at least a second surgery sometime down the line
