A hair transplant can be a life-changing experience for many people. However, the outcomes of these clinics can be unsatisfactory for some people, resulting in deformity and visible scarring. Hair transplant quality might vary widely due to an increase in clinics offering hair transplant operations and a lack of industry control. In the past few years, hair transplant repair has seen a drastic increase due to poorly executed hair transplants.
Monaris Hair Clinic’s team is experienced in restoring the outcomes of faulty hair transplants performed by other facilities. It is especially crucial to have faith in the doctors treating you if you are attempting to repair a transplant that you are unhappy with. It’s critical that your valuable donor hair is used intelligently, and that a long-term strategy is devised to make the most of this finite resource.
There are a number of factors that can lead to a failed or a bad hair transplant. To mention a few of them are:
- Inexperienced Surgeon: In Delhi and the surrounding places consist of inundated doctors that are inexperienced and do not have the skills and are unaware of the meticulous methods including Autologous Hair Transplant, Follicular Unit Extraction, and Follicular Unit Transplantation which are the most common hair transplant procedures. Hair transplants are treated as an “add-on” service by these novice surgeons, rather than a specialization that requires expertise and ability.
- Improper graft handling: Improper graft handling is one of the most prevalent blunders made by unskilled surgeons. The transplant must be handled carefully and positioned appropriately for the hair roots to thrive, this requires a skill that demands accuracy, agility, and expertise. When a transplant is treated incorrectly, the hair follicles can dry up, resulting in the graft’s loss and failure to produce hair.
- Ineligible candidate: While hair transplants are an effective treatment option for baldness, however, not everyone is a good candidate. Some people have thinning hair but aren’t ready for a transplant yet. Also, for those with pre-existing medical or genetic disorders like alopecia areata, a hair transplant may not be the best option. Your hair transplant specialist should be able to assess your medical history and investigate potential future hair loss to ensure that your treatment will last for years.
Fixing a botched hair transplant or reversion hair transplant is more difficult than doing first-time surgery on a patient, this requires the surgeon to have more experience and understanding. The sort of repair work required is determined by the issues that the patient is experiencing. For instance, if there is substantial scarring, a surgeon may be able to remove the scars and then close the region, or a surgeon may be able to transplant hair into the scarred area. The grafts may be removed and replanted to make them look more natural if a patient has very obvious, ‘plug’-style hair follicles as a result of their prior surgeon employing outmoded techniques. In many circumstances, an expert surgeon may also repair a poorly constructed hairline. However, you’ll need to meet with your surgeon first to examine the extent of the damage caused to opt for a corrective hair transplant.
Camouflaging grafts from previous transplants is one of the most common procedures to remedy to fix a bad hair transplant. Dr. Arihant Surana, our surgeon, has the skill and expertise to use micro-grafts in front of massive existing grafts. This can help hide unnatural-looking hair plugs and give you a more natural-looking hairline. Graft removal is another technique to fix a bad hair transplant. The surgeon uses this approach to remove existing grafts, meticulously dissect them, and redistribute them for a more natural-looking result.
