Does smoking cause hair loss, will smoking affect the success of a transplant? Best Regards.
There are known effects on blood supply to the scalp and other areas of the body when one smokes. This may or may not contribute to hair loss. Many hair transplant surgeons warn patients that if they smoke, they run the risk of losing hair from a transplant or reducing the yield from a transplant. I have not found that to be the case, but from a good legal position, I must warn you of that possibility.
