Hair Transplant Repairs

In the current scenario, hair transplantation is booming, and there are numerous clinics coming up with different types of techniques and procedures. However, multiple cases of improper hair transplantation have been reported, which can be treated with well-advanced techniques at our clinic as we specialize in hair transplant repairs.
Problems have been reported due to poor artistic planning, plug procedures, poor hair direction, and problems with healing, inconsistent hair growth, lack of treatments to prevent ongoing hair loss, antiquated techniques and scalp reductions or scalp flaps. In few cases, these results were not the outcomes of improper hair transplantation but generally a limitation of old technology used by the surgeon.
Various Advanced Hair Transplant Repair Techniques are:

Covering large grafts with micrografts or Camouflage

Camouflage is an advanced technique where small follicular units, or micro-grafts, are placed over the larger grafts to cover them. It improves the aesthetics as hairline becomes softer and more natural. However, if the larger grafts are quite close to the frontal hairline or if they are located in the crown then this method would not be effective to yield the best expected results.

Removing and recycling large grafts into small grafts or Graft Removal

Graft Removal also known as Graft Excision It deals with the larger grafts which are close to frontal hair line or located in the crown and hairs grown in improper direction. These larger grafts are removed, sliced into smaller or micro-grafts, and re-implanted in the proper location and direction. The main advantage of this technique is the underlying scar tissue removal, and it enhances the appearance.

Combined Repair

Blend of Camouflage and Graft Removal is known as Combined Repair and this technique is suggested based on the precise examination of hair direction and graft. Precise judgmental skills and expertise are required to strike a balance between the two procedures to derive exceptional results.

Scalp Micro pigmentation (SMP)

Scalp Micro pigmentation is a permanent cosmetic ‘tattoo’ that is similar to short hairs of a closely shaved scalp. The process minimizes the contrast between scalp and hair color and should be done by an expert hair restoration surgeon.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is suggested when the implanted grafts are small, but placed in the wrong direction or location.Hair removal laser works on selective photothermolysis which means specific wavelength of high intensity light is used on the pigment in hair follicles. It is generally advised for patients with light hair.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is used to remove the scars where high-intensity light is used to gently vaporize skin tissue to remove scars and smoothen the skin.Our doctors take specialized approaches for each patient as the problem reported varies in each case, adopting the correct repair procedure is critical as the wrong strategy can worsen the situation. Sometimes, it may be a combination of problems which needs to be addressed and treated accordingly. Natural look, neatness and preciseness are topmost priorities in repair or corrective procedures. Severity of problem decides the count of sessions for hair transplant repair to yield good and satisfactory results.
