Repair Hair Transplants Surgeries

The primary goal of every Hair Transplant patient is to obtain a good natural result. This can almost always be achieved when you make the correct choice of a hair transplant Clinic or doctor, provided that you have realistic expectations.

Unfortunately, in our days there are so many average to bad clinics around, offering attractive advertising and very low prices. Patients should be careful which clinic to choose and they should decide based on the clinic’s past results and testimonials from real patients. The wrong choice can lead to a repair Hair Transplant Surgery.

We can divide the problems of a bad Hair Transplant into 3 main categories:

1. In sessions with the Strip Technique, patients can end up with big linear scar on their donor. In addition, you can end up with loss of donor strength below the scar due to high tension of closure and disturbing the normal direction of the follicular units in this area. This causes a future FUE surgery in this area to yield less grafts. In addition, you need additional FUE grafts to cover the big scar created.

In FUE sessions, a possible aggressive extraction of for say 5000 grafts causes the depletion of the donor area and the creation of white dots. In this subsequent FUE session is more difficult due to scarring and to less hair per follicular unit (FU). The final number of the total grafts that the donor can give is significantly reduced so that additional baldness can’t be covered.

2. The way that sites are created in the recipient area can be aggressive with bigger needles and deep sites creating scar tissue even ridging in some cases. This results that in an effort for adding additional grafts in this area from a repair surgery can have low percentage of growth due to the fact that the scar tissue does not allow sufficient blood stream to this follicular unit.

3. The angulation of the placed grafts is wrong. This results in the effect that hair cannot be combed normally and most of the times you need to hide the hairline. Also low Density with bigger grafts looks unnatural. In a subsequent repair surgery, even if the hair is inserted to the correct angle, it is possible to transect the previous wrong angled grafts, resulting in shock loss.
