What to Do About Bad Hair Transplants

If you've ever suffered embarasment from thinning or balding hair and chose hair transplant surgery as a solution to your problem, nothing can be worse than a final result you're not happy with. But there is something that can be done about bad hair transplants.

For anyone who has had a hair transplant surgery in past decades the procedure usually involved hair plugs that make hair stick up from the head like bristles of a toothbrush. If this has happened to you and you are displeased with the outcome,there is hope as modern methods are available to allow for more natural looking hair.

To fix a bad hair transplant you must first find a surgeon who is skilled not only in the surgery procedure but has also had experience in fixing other bad hair transplants.

Once you have decided on a doctor to perform the fix, be sure to evaluate them as you would when first getting the surgery. It won't be enough to see examples of their work on virgin scalps, but you should request testimonials and photos of work the doctor has done to correct others who also had bad hair transplants.

Next, it is important to speak with the surgeon about particular procedures that can be done to fix your exact hair plug dilemma. Some surgeons may suggest taking the hair plugs out completely and creating smaller units of hair than reinsert them, or if your problem relates to too little use of hair plugs, the surgeon may add some new donor hair to minimize the patchy - doll head look.

If cost is an issue, be sure to bring this factor up with your surgeon as it may be more expensive to do the correction than an original surgery would cost. If you do not have the cash, your doctor can usually point you to several different financing methods.

The healing process when a hair transplant fix is performed can be increased from someone just having a routine hair transplant done as it may involve both the removal of plugs and replacement of new ones. Ask your doctor if they expect you to have more than one surgery session.

While your doctor may not know the answer to this until after she sees how your first surgery has gone. In any case, it is wise to go in expecting that you probably will need more than one hair transplant surgery to fix any ill effects of a bad hair transplant.
