Hello. This may sound like a silly question, but I was wondering, to any of the doctors on this site, does surgery (like foot or knee surgery, etc.) after hair transplant have negative effects on the transplanted hair? Let's say that in a year I am in a car accident and need surgery...will these put my transplanted hairs at risk?

Once the transplanted hairs are growing they should repond to trauma and other stimulus in the same fashion as the original hairs would have. There are no real long term negetive effects on the transplanted hair.
