What is a corrective hair transplant surgery?
While many people opt for a hair transplant procedure, be it Follicular Unit Extraction or Follicular Unit Transplant, not all of them come out happy or fully satisfied after the treatment. It is fairly common for people to be let down by a low-cost procedure or lured by advertisements into making a wrong choice. People can, therefore, be dissatisfied for a variety of reasons – it could be with the results of the transplant not being highly successful or some complication that has arisen from the initial procedure. In such scenarios, a corrective hair transplant also known as revision surgery is performed to treat these hair loss patients. Corrective hair transplant surgery is therefore performed to rectify the poor results of the previous transplant surgery.
Reasons for bad hair transplant
Let’s look at various factors that make hair transplants an unpleasant experience for some people.
Corrective hair transplant treatments
There are many modern ways to treat complications from your poorly-done hair transplants.
- Fixing the scars – As we have seen, with traditional hair transplants requiring the part of the scalp area to be removed for grafting, it often leads to several scars in the donor area. That’s why the FUE method is more popular now where individual hair follicles are grafted from the donor area and later implanted into the recipient, carefully with the help of a needle or scalpel.
- SMP or Scalp micropigmentation – If you are suffering from common pattern baldness or scarring alopecias, you can consider getting inked with this cosmetic tattoo called SMP. You read that right – scalp micropigmentation can help you cover up your bald patch by creating a contrast between the scalp and the hair colour. It creates the appearance of a close shave over the area and gives you a natural look.
- Other modern techniques include Graft excision (using FUE to fill large holes and cover scar tissue), Hair camouflaging (inserting micrografts in front & later camouflaging the larger grafts with them) and Combined repair (grafts that cannot be camouflaged are removed for better results).
Hair transplant procedures have come a long way with several advances in the field such as the latest machinery, the grafting and implantation method and the surgery overall. It is likely to continue evolving in the years to come. While you may have already gone through a hair transplant, it is better to research thoroughly about the corrective surgery before going through the same. This will give you a clear idea about what to expect and the nature of the procedure beforehand.
