Repair hair transplant or correction of a wrong hair transplant result, has become the need of the hour. Know why Satya Hair Solutions, under the guidance of Dr. Shail Gupta is known as number one Repair Hair Transplant Clinic in the world. 

Hair transplant has become a very common procedure done world-wide, to restore the aesthetic look and confidence of a person losing hair. No doubt hair transplantation has done this for so many people across the globe. There have been a lot of advancement & personal skill improvisations since then. With the popularity of hair transplantation, there has been a steep rise in the number of cases which are unhappy with their results. 

What do we mean by a wrong hair transplant?

Wrong Hair transplant can be considered as a hair transplant failure, when:-

Hair transplant fails to give you density.
When the hairline is unnatural & ugly.
When the hairline is detectable.
The donor area is damaged.
There can be thinning or fall of the non transplanted as well as transplanted hair.

 Why does a hair transplant fail?

There can be many reasons for a Wrong hair transplant.

Improper technique or lack of experience is the commonest reason for wrong hair transplant worldwide. 
Wrong selection of method. As we know there are two methods FUT & FUE, but most of the  clinics worldwide are mostly doing only one type of surgery. It is always better to choose a clinic that has a competent and confident surgeon with years of experience in both surgeries. 

Inappropriate selection of medicines and poor follow up, as we know it is mandatory in most of the cases to use medicines & not only use them but also use them thoughtfully. 

Lack of artistic imagination. This is perhaps the most important part of a hair transplant surgery. This aspect has to be combined with the science of hair restoration in order to achieve the desired results. 

 What makes a repair hair transplant challenging?

Any hair transplant is challenging as it is a new case, with new issues & new opportunities. But repair hair transplant is tough and a testimony to the real skills, art, experience & belief of a hair transplant surgeon. Challenges of a repair hair transplant include:-

The entire focus is on the surgeon, who has to be well equipped with all the arms & ammunition. The surgeon should have experience, skill, confidence & believe to deliver what is needed in his patient. Having a surgeon who knows FUT, FUE, Body hair transplant, Synthetic hair transplant, SMP, Extraction & reshaping of the ugly hairline, combination techniques & above all the intent to help his patient is all that you need. It’s pretty simple, isn’t it? You just have to get to the right man & leave everything to him, that’s it.

There is a lot of scarring in the donor area as well as the recipient area, which can make life difficult for the surgeon. 

  1. The angles in the donor area change completely due to scarring, which makes extraction difficult and sometimes inaccurate.
  2. The donor area is usually depleted which makes it even more challenging.
  3. One has to know all the techniques and combine the procedures to give optimal results.

It is difficult to reshape the hairline with the existing wrong hairline. the angles at which grafts  have been planted are usually straight & wrong. At times we have to extract them & reuse & then refill.
The patient has lost his donor, money & faith, trust which he had in the doctor & hair  transplant procedure which needs to be restored.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fixing a failed hair transplant can be challenging, but there are a few options available:

Revision Surgery: If the first transplant did not produce satisfactory results, a redo operation could also be practiced. A talented surgeon can try to rectify the old work, repositioning or adding some grafts in an attempt to enhance overall aesthetics.

Camouflage Techniques: Different camouflage methods can hide the unsatisfactory results, depending on how severe a failure is. These might range from the application of certain hair products, styling methods or even getting tattoos in order to create an illusion of thicker hair.

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP): SMP is sometimes done by tattooing small dots on the scalp to resemble hair follicles. It is applied to produce a false sense of mass and can successfully hide the marks or irregularities resulting from an unsuccessful transplant.

Consultation with Specialists: Different perspectives and possible solutions can be received by consulting other hair restoration specialists or dermatologists. They may refer them to treatments such as medications or therapies that could support natural hair growth or address any problems associated with the transplant failure.

Patience and Time:

In most cases, the results of hair transplants might be permanent. usually the donor hair is taken from areas of scalp that are not prone to balding and therefore less likely to fall out. But it is important to note that although the transplanted hair becomes permanent, the natural hair surrounding this area can still be prone loss of yet more hair due to genetic or other reasons. This may create an uneven look over the course of time, necessitating periodic touch-ups to keep a uniform appearance. A hair lansplant has long-term results, but must manage expectations and follow the guidelines for post transplate care.

A hair transplant can be corrected or reversed if necessary. If you don’t like the outcome or there are problems such as uneven hair growth, poorly looking hairlines and scarring then corrections can be done. These can range from additional hair transplantation to fill-in spots or reposition the hairline, scar revision techniques *, different means to enhance the aesthetic look of a ” job well done “. It is necessary to turn for advice from a qualified and knowledgeable hair transplant surgeon in order to raise your concerns and find the best ways of correction in accordance with your case.

If a hair transplant doesn't yield the expected results, it can be disappointing, but there are steps that can be taken:

Assessment: It is also very important to know why the transplant failed. Could be because of several reasons like poor graft survival, inappropriate placement, underlying health conditions or unrealistic expectations.

Consultation: Return to your surgeon for an assessment. They can identify the failure’s cause and give their recommendations on how it could be corrected or improved.

Revision Surgery: In some instances, a revision operation may be proposed in order to correct the problems that caused the first failure. This might include more grafts, different hairline or dealing with any complications.

Alternative Treatments: This might be suggested if a revision surgery isn’t advisable or you decide not to undergo another transplant, alternative options such as medications, PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy scalp micropigmentation are used in order to enhance the looks of hair.

Patience and Realistic Expectations: Patience and understanding that there might not be spectacular results are crucial at the recovery stage.

Hair transplant procedures can be complex.

There are various reasons why transplanted hair may not grow as expected:

Shock Loss: This phase where a transplanted hair sheds and regrowth happens is common. This is called shock loss and usually occurs during the first few weeks following a transplant.

Improper Care: Failure to adhere to the post-transplant care instructions may influence hair growth. Avoid all strenuous activities, shield the scalp from sunrays and follow recommended cleansing and care regimen.

Infection or Inflammation: Hair growth can also be hampered if the scalp infections or inflammation arises after surgery. This includes proper hygiene and following the doctor’s advise concerning medications.

Poor Blood Circulation: Insufficient blood supply to the area of transplantation can also hinder hair growth. There can be many reasons for this, such as scarring or incorrect technique when carrying out the transplant.

Underlying Health Conditions: Hair growth can be affected by certain health conditions or medications. Make sure to ask your doctor about any underlying health issues or medications you’re taking now because these can affect hair growth.

Graft Survival: Sometimes, the follicles may die or become damaged during transplantation thereby affecting their growth.

It is indeed possible to correct a bad hair transplant, but it depends on the problems you have with them. Scars, an unnatural hairline or patchy grafts following the transplant may be corrected. Corrective procedures, such as revision surgeries, laser treatments or transplanting more hair follicles may improve cosmetic properties and rectify previous errors. The best way you could assess the situation and seek out possible solutions would be by consulting a competent hair transplant specialist.

A hair surgery that has gone wrong is, therefore, important to handle calmly and look at your options after the failed procedure. 

Here are some steps you might want to consider:

Consult with a Specialist: Go to a dermatologist or specialist in hair restoration. They can evaluate the situation, identify what went wrong with the transplant and recommend possible solutions.

Understand the Reason: It is necessary to understand why the transplant failed. It may be due to numerous factors such as wrong technique, insufficient donor hair or personal healing response.

Explore Revision or Repair Options: Revision procedures or alternative treatments could also be available, depending on the cause of failure. This could involve additional transplants or other non-surgical treatments such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy.

Consider Alternative Treatments: For some situations, the hair transplant might not be optimal. Other alternatives such as wigs, scalp micropigmentation or medications may be considered. These alternatives may present a less invasive procedure with the possibility of success.

Patience: Wherever you decide to go, patience is the way forward. Hair restoration is a long process and it can even need several sessions or treatments before the desired outcome is achieved.

Emotional Support: It can be emotionally difficult to have a failed transplant. If the stress or disappointment is all getting too much, talk to friends family or even a counsellor.
