Fixing a Bad Hair Transplant


Our doctors have performed a number of hair restoration surgeries with the intention to correct the outcome from poor quality hair transplant surgeries. When restoring a poorly performed previous hair transplant, a lot of unique issues and problems have to be resolved as the procedure varies from performing a hair restoration on a fresh scalp.

Hair transplant repairs need a lot of experience as well as creativity on the surgeon.

What qualities do hair transplant repairs require in the service provider or the surgeon?

  • A careful and detailed assessment of the impacted area of the scalp that needs to be repaired as well as an examination of the donor area.
  • Choice of the restoration technique that will suit the candidate to bring out best results, as the incorrect selection of hair restoration methods may make the outcome worse than before.
  • Hair transplant repairs need a lot of experience as well as creativity on the surgeon, as the procedure is significantly different from performing a routine hair restoration.
  • The entire task is a challenging one and the problems need to be tackled efficiently and simultaneously.
  • Awareness of the limitations of the previous procedure’s cosmetic defects
  • The ability to study the flaws of the previous hair restoration surgeries and set a clear goal for the repair procedure to achieve the best possible and natural results.
  • Fully understand the emotional state of the patient with the need for hair restoration repair; The patient is likely to be sceptical about the new restoration procedure and may have several questions or doubts prior to the procedure. It may be a difficult task for the provider to establish trust and restore confidence and reassure the patient that the procedure will be a corrective one.
