View Full Version : Poor job of hairline transplant, requires fixing

12-11-2015, 11:28 AM

I am 31, and long term sufferer of baldness
I have had multiple transplants, and now that I know there can be no more done, I have to think about fixing the botch job that was done in 2008 on my hair line. they did a poor job with scattered sparsely distributed hairs below a more even hairline (on one side). I know laser is an option, but I really cannot stand the thought of multiple visits to clinics over the next year for laser treatment, I have had enough, the thought strains me, (and apparantly treatment is complicated for male faces..?..) I would nearly prefer scarring...

My question is, can I get the company who did the transplant to take the hair follicles out using the FUE extraction technique. I am aware of the potential scarring, but I do not know would they be big and draw attention to the area, I personally think they will be small, but the other question, would it be permanent removal. Is there some cases, that after extraction, some of the follicle remains and regrows after some months/years.

Is this a really, really bad idea? Or even the possibility that it may work

Thank you for your help

If they botched the transplant, I would never go back to them for anything. Find a very reputable IAHRS doctor and have a consultation.

link80, i'm in the same position as you are. shoot me a message and we'll talk. I agree with jamesst, having the same butchers repair is asking for trouble.

I agree, once a clinic or doctor shows themselves to be incompetent or dishonest, it would be foolish to return there, even if they offer you free work (I had a similar situation).

They should accommodate you to seek the services of a surgeon who specializes in repair. They have done what they are capable of doing in terms of your aesthetic results from hair transplant surgery. Are they aware of your expectations not being met?

I would definitely set up a consultation with another surgeon who is highly recommended and provides consistent, solid results. I know this requires work, but you've come this far already, so don't try to cut corners so close to the end. You can even ask each surgeon about specific repair cases they've done.

Personally, I think removing the hairs from the hairline via FUE is a very bad idea. You will have scars, and no hair to cover them up. Also, once the graft is gone, it's gone. No growing back .

Providing pictures would also help us to put things into perspective so we can see exactly what you're working with.
