Can a Bad Hair Transplant be Fixed
A Brief History of Hair Transplant Techniques
Before the 1990s, there was a period when Hair Transplant techniques such as FUE & FUT were not in the picture, instead older techniques such as scalp reduction & hair plugs were the common things.
Hair plugs were widely used until the time they were replaced by modern techniques. The technique revolved around small. Circular pieces of tissue being removed from the back of the scalp using a punch tool and then be transplanted into smaller circular sections that were cut out of balding areas of the scalp! The technique had various laws as the patient would often be left with visible circular scars and the hair plugs would even grow in an unnatural pattern.
Ways Due to Which a Hair Transplant Can Go Wrong
The controversial & outdated techniques were the sole cause of bad hair transplants in that period. However in modern times, with advanced and proven techniques like FUE & FUT bad hair transplants can still occur, and mostly these occur due to poor physician skill.
For example, transplanted hairs that are not placed correctly might end up growing in the wrong direction, this wastes the entire effort of modern techniques as eventually the hair starts growing in unnatural directions.
Apart from this, many clinics give unnatural and impossible promises to the patients due to which an inappropriate hairline is formed over time and might do nothing to fix the ongoing hair loss which was the reason why hair transplant was opted for in the first place.
Can a Bad Hair Transplant Be Fixed?
The answer to this is quite complicated, no 2 cases of Hair Transplant are the same. So it’s important to assess the case and its own complications before forming an opinion. This is something that can only happen after in-clinic examination by the surgeon.
