Seeking A Hair Transplant Revision

Many situations may prompt a patient to contemplate revising a hair transplant.

For instance:

Over time, surgical techniques and instruments have undergone continuous evolution and enhancement since the inception of hair transplantation. Presently, the aesthetic focus of hair transplantation centers around achieving a “natural” appearance, seamlessly blending transplanted areas with those unaffected by hair loss. This shift towards naturalness has been made possible by modern techniques utilizing tiny grafts containing one to four hair follicles. In contrast, older methods involving the transplantation of “plugs” with multiple hair follicles, often resulting in a conspicuous and artificial appearance, are outdated.

The outdated “pluggy” look typifies older hair transplantation techniques. Many patients who underwent hair transplants a decade or more ago may seek revision to attain a more natural appearance. Revision of the pluggy look is feasible for most patients, involving procedures such as:

  • “Filling in” gaps between pluggy grafts with micro-grafts containing one to a few hair follicles.
  • Surgically extracting oversized pluggy grafts that cannot be concealed by micro-grafts.
  • Refining the hairline to blend more naturally with the overall revision of the transplant.

Each patient possesses unique characteristics necessitating careful consideration during consultations with a physician hair restoration specialist. Agreement between patient and physician on the anticipated outcome of the transplant revision is crucial.

Additional Hair Loss After Surgery

Some patients with older transplants may experience additional hair loss alongside dissatisfaction with their previous transplant. Combining revision surgery for the older transplant with new hair restoration in areas of recent hair loss may offer a chance to meet aesthetic standards of naturalness or increased density. However, this approach may also pose challenges such as sourcing adequate donor hair for both objectives. New areas of hair loss commonly emerge post-initial transplantation. A physician specializing in hair restoration can often anticipate progressive hair loss and advise the patient on the necessity of future transplantation sessions to address ongoing hair loss issues.

Continued hair loss can often be predicted based on factors including the age of hair loss onset, the rate of progression, the type of hair loss, and the patient’s family history.

Hair styles evolve over time. Individuals keen on staying current with trends may frequently change their hairstyles, while others may prefer a consistent look, such as the polished appearance of a successful professional. Regardless of the preference for style changes, individuals with hair transplants may feel that the aesthetic appearance of their transplant no longer aligns with current trends. For instance, a hairline transplanted aggressively forward in the frontal and temporal areas during youth may become aesthetically inappropriate with age. Unforeseen hair loss in the hairline area can also present cosmetic challenges. Before undertaking transplant revision for stylistic reasons, the patient should be certain of the need for revision, with agreement between the patient and the hair restoration specialist on the revision plan and desired outcome.

Revision and New Hair Restoration Surgery

Hair transplant repair for older procedures, typically performed over 10 years ago, is most common among patients who underwent “Plug” and “Mini-Graft” procedures. Many of these patients seek correction of their donor scar and softening of their hairline. We aim to address both issues simultaneously.

We have found that utilizing FUE technology is the most effective approach to improve older hair transplants. In the past, attempts to remove old scars often worsened the situation. With modern techniques, we can transplant grafts into the old scar and transform large plugs into smaller grafts containing 1 to 3 hairs, resulting in a more natural hairline. The cost typically ranges between $4,000 and $6,000, with scar repair procedures costing as little as $2,000.

Hair Transplant Repair

Katona Hair Restoration uses FUE to upgrade and repair Scars, Plugs, and thin hair restoration results. These tools allow our experienced technicians and hair transplant surgeons to create natural-looking results.

Many hair transplant patients have been told that they do not have enough donor. We have the skill and technology to help most patients. Come in for a free evaluation to see if we can help you look better.

How We Use FUE to Repair Hair Plugs

The worst looking hair transplants are caused by doctors not using Follicular Unit grafts in the hairline. Many of the older hair transplants used micro and mini grafts. These grafts contained too many hairs making it impossible for the hairline to look natural. We combine 2 techniques to correct these mistakes. We hide these unnatural grafts by surrounding them with 1 and 2 haired grafts. Another technique is to remove the large grafts and turn them into smaller grafts. In most cases, we combine these techniques to recreate a natural hairline.

Some Hair Transplants performed 10 years ago in Florida and elsewhere were not done using the proper angles. So the hair did not look natural when it exited the scalp, this is a fairly easy fix. Our doctors are able to hide these bad angles with new hair that exits the scalp properly. If the original grafts were too large and have bad angles we will remove them, replacing them with follicular units.

Hiding Bad or Large Donor Scars

Bad surgical techniques can cause visible donor scars. The old technique to fix these scars was to remove them and let them heal. We have a better way to hide these scars. We use FUE to transplant follicular unit grafts into them. A lot of doctors thought that the new grafts would not grow in the scar tissue. Most patients with wide scars are good candidates to have follicular unit grafts transplanted into them. We can fix this in 1 procedure. There are some patients that will need 2 sessions to fix the scars. It depends on how each patient heals and the depth of the scar. During your consultation, we will evaluate your situation and create a plan to help you reach your goal.
