In brief: Usually Permanent

Hair follicles located in the back of the scalp are typically immune to hereditary hair loss.
When carefully harvested using NeoGraft FUE & transplanted into the thinning area, they will live & grow "forever." Only exceptions include severe disease or meds like chemo. Be aware that the NON-transplanted hair is still at risk, needing medical tx's in order to protect those follicles & the results.

In brief: Check VP Biden

His transplanted hair still seems to be in place.
Seems to be permanent in most men who have had it done by a reputable plastic surgeon. Check with & ask a prospective transplanter for their success rate & ask for references from at least 3 of their patients. Don't know about sucess for women if you are asking for yourself.
