What is a corrective hair transplant?
A corrective hair transplant is performed on hair that has been incorrectly transplanted or had a negative reaction to the transplant. The correction is performed only if the initial hair transplant doesn't work out. If the initial hair transplant surgery is not performed well, the recipient will not have healthy and natural-looking hair, which will need to be corrected.
It takes time to realize that a hair transplant procedure has gone awry. However, even if the issue is noticed late, the situation can be overcome with a specialist.
When will the issue be discovered?
After ten days from the initial hair transplant surgery, scabbing will subside, and the growing process will begin. It can take up to 1 year to determine whether the transplanted hair is growing well or adequately.
Why does a hair transplant surgery fail?
Hair transplantation provides results tempered to a preferred method; for example, with the FUT method, hair transplantation is performed in strips, which compromises the natural look of the result. Transplanting single hair follicles one at a time provides a more natural appearance. For this, the FUE method is recommended. Using the FUE technique, hair roots taken from the back of the neck are transferred individually, improving the applied treatment's success rate and providing a natural appearance.
Why do you need a corrective hair transplant?
The two most important factors in avoiding the necessity for corrective hair transplants in the first place are the choice of the specialist and the method that is used.
After deciding on a hair transplant, you should consult an experienced expert and ensure you are working with a professional. In addition, the FUE technique is the preferred method of transplantation.
This method, which is effective at hiding scars and correcting poorly transplanted hair,does provide a permanent solution. Treatment may be repeated more than once if one has a damaged donor area due to failed hair transplant. If the initial donor area is unusable, other body parts (BHT) can be used as a second donor source.
To avoid this kind of hair restoration, carefully choose your hair transplant center. Ask them what their experience is and also ask to see some reference pictures of past hair transplants they have performed.
