Correction of Unsuccessful Hair Transplantation Surgeries

Hair Transplantation Surgeries

Overly large grafts and ‘pluggy’appearance

Hair transplantation with large spaces or placing more than one follicle in one opened canal would create an undesired and unnatural result. In this case, some of the existed follicles would be removed or additional follicle would be transplanted in between other follicles for creating less noticeability. It is possible to have hair transplantation by combining both methods.

Having a low frontal hairline

Planning the frontal hairline was always vital for hair transplantation surgeries. Therefore, a badly planned frontal hairline would harm natural appearance of hair transplantation. Having a too low frontal hairline as a result of hair transplantation could be fixed by removing hair follicles or laser treatment. Sometimes laser epilation can be applied in case of having little amount of hair follicles transplantation.

Having a high frontal hairline

If the donor site is available, it is the easiest problem to solve among other unsuccessful hair transplantations. It is possible to relocate frontal hairline by second hair transplantation.

Having a very straight and unnatural frontal hairline

Our frontal hairline would never be straight. There are always little indentations and dentations in a natural frontal line. Therefore, it is essential to follow these rules in order to have natural looking hair transplantation. Otherwise, frontal hairline should be moved down for one line (0.25 cm) and aforementioned indentions should be created.

Different hair directions and angles

Hair should be in whole for its direction and angles. Otherwise, best solution would be transplanting more hair or removing incompatible hair follicles.

Irregularity of hair frequency on recipient area compared to other areas

Hair frequency on areas other than hair transplantation area should be considered in hair transplantation plans. Sometimes, hair transplantation area might have an unnatural appearance due insufficient hair growth or overlooking to aforementioned situation. Easiest solution would be having a short hair cut or having frequency increasing hair transplantation.

Scars on recipient area;

Wider opened canals and non-growing hair follicles might cause noticeable scars, and it can be corrected by second hair transplantation surgeries.

Hair growing very regularly and as in lines

Vertical or horizontal hair transplantation surgery in recipient area cannot be expected to appear as natural. Grew hair would create a square and rectangular appearance on recipient area. In order to prevent this view, more frequent transplantation or removing some follicles can be made.

If there are not any issues on direction of transplanted hair, having a longer hair might solve the problem.

Permanent loss of transplanted hair

Hair collected out of safe donor site will be loss by time.

Some hair would keep growing since it was collected from safe donor site. This could cause insufficient and unnatural appearance in some areas. Frequency increasing hair transplantation would be the only solution.

Visible scars and inhomogeneous appearance on donor site

As encountered more frequently in FUT hair transplantation operations, this can also be encountered in FUE hair transplantation operation which are operated by thick punch as well as inhomogeneous use of donor site. This can be solved by having longer hair on donor site, as well as applying hair transplantation or SMP (Scalp Micro Pigmentation) on scarred tissues.
