A large number of our restoration treatments are recovery procedures that are the result of poorly executed surgeries from the past. Some of these are as a result of the use of outdated methods such as the plug-technique, mediocre FUT hair transplants and scalp reductions.
Often times, poor hair transplants are the result of one or more procedural aberrations during the operation itself. Problems are caused by poor technique, improper planning, or even by having treated patients that actually were not suitable candidates for a proper hair transplant. Poor results can also occur when the procedure is performed by inexperienced hair transplant doctors or their assistants. During long treatments inexperienced technicians can lose the proverbial eye for details, with devastating consequences. We also see surgeons that do not perform regularly hair transplants not only that they lack the knowledge or science to do it correctly but often they also lack the artistic touch, which can make the difference between a beautiful or a lesser result.
Poorly executed hair treatments can have a major impact on a person’s quality of life, but fortunately nowadays we can now significantly improve the cosmetic result, with the help of new developments and less invasive techniques. The techniques for correcting cosmetic problems caused by outdated hair transplant techniques have improved dramatically in the last fifteen years.
In order to ensure the best result, the badly transplanted grafts (follicular units) may be removed if necessary, prepared (finer cut), and reinserted.
Types of corrective treatments we perform
– Incorrectly-placed or unnatural hairline can be corrected:
A too low or a too high created hairline, coarse and thick grafts placed on the front line and even a tight, unnatural hairline can be corrected with the FUE method.
–Extraction or removal of misplaced grafts:
Hairs which are implanted in an unnatural direction can be re-transplanted into the right direction of growth.
By using less invasive hair transplant techniques, we offer the possibility to make scars less visible. In this procedure the hair follicles (grafts) are harvested from the donor area (rear or side of the head) and transplanted on the scarred tissue. As result, the scar may be partially or completely covered. The structure of the scar tissue and the degree of blood flow to scar tissue co-determine the success of the correction.
