Hair Transplant Repair Surgery

Many patients are traveling abroad for advanced reparative methods of hair transplant surgery to repair previous, inferior quality hair restoration results.

For most patients seeking revision work, the result of the initial hair restoration is from the transplanting of grafts that were too large, either performed years earlier or more recently with outdated, unfashionable techniques.

Often times, repair hair transplant surgery is needed to provide a more appealing pattern and to achieve a natural appearance. See our Before and After photos.

The techniques for correcting these issues caused by obsolete hair transplant procedures have improved dramatically over the past years.

With a commanding presence, a significant number of hair restoration surgeries abroad are used to correct the appearance of poorly performed hair transplants in the US that are using plug-procedures, mini-grafts or scalp reductions.

Patients are also seeking hair transplant surgery abroad due to poor techniques, improper planning, or from transplanting patients who were not appropriate candidates for surgery.

How Can You Repair Your Old Hair Transplant Scars?

A more recent development in hair transplant repair is the use of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to camouflage a widened donor scar. In this technique, hair is extracted from around the area of the linear scar and then placed directly into it.

FUE is also used in patients who have normal line scar, but decide to wear the hair in the back and sides of their scalp very short. In this case, the grafts removed through direct extraction can hide the original linear scar.
