Hair transplant gone wrong? Or has it been outdated? Whatever the case, there is no reason for a person to continue to suffer from an unnatural and embarrassing appearance. There are various available hair restoration surgeries that can correct the appearance of inadequate or outdated hair transplants. Recent advances have proved significant in improving the cosmetic appearance of people who have had even a terrible experience.
FUT (follicular unit transplantation) and FUE (follicular unit extraction) methods can be used to improve an inadequate or outdated hair transplant result.
To reconstruct the hairline to create a cleaner look, one can transplant new follicular grafts at the hairline, completely eliminating the outdated “plug” look.
In a few cases, best possible results are obtained by removing abnormal grafts and using FUT to redistribute and reimplant the hair. Furthermore, it can also be used to remove the scar tissue along with the grafts, improving the overall appearance of your scalp hair.
The other of the two main methods – FUE – is also an effective method for camouflaging a large or linear donor scar. In this process, hair is extracted from the area near the scar and implanted to cover the scar.
Another option for camouflaging a donor scar is scalp micropigmentation (SMP). You can think of SMP as a permanent cosmetic tattoo that mimics the look of short hairs on a closely shaved scalp. In some cases, it is also used to camouflage a patient’s thinning hair.
Laser hair removal is another technique that can be used to treat small transplanted grafts placed in the wrong direction or location.
