Repair Sugeries 

Consult with our doctors

Precision Restoration: Our skilled surgeons at CARA perform meticulous repair surgeries to rectify past hair transplant mistakes, delivering superior results.

Patients and the field of hair transplant science suffer when surgeries are performed by inexperienced or unqualified individuals, resulting in disastrous outcomes that tarnish the reputation of this art and science. Correcting a failed hair transplant is a complex endeavor. Challenges include limited donor area, poorly designed hairlines, and pre-existing scarring, all of which can be traumatic for the patient. Rectifying these issues demands skill and expertise to reconstruct what has gone awry. At CARA, we prioritize preserving the donor reserve, crafting new designs, and minimizing scarring to provide effective solutions for our patients.

Understanding CARA's Hair Repair Surgery Process

Correction Scenarios

Unnatural Hairline:

In cases where hair growth is good but the hairline appears unnatural, we employ a meticulous approach. Utilizing scalp, body, or nape of the neck hair for singles, we craft a soft and natural-looking hairline. These cases are easily correctable.

Patchy Growth:

When results are generally satisfactory but there are patches of poor growth, we address this scenario with precision. Harnessing beard hair/scalp hair, we fill in the gaps effectively without the need for shaving, as beard hair tends to grow exceptionally well.

Re-Do Cases

Heavy Extraction and Poor Growth:

In instances where inexperienced teams have led to extensive donor area damage and sparse growth over the bald area, we take a comprehensive approach. Treating it as a case with a compromised donor and damaged recipient skin, we consider body and beard hair to enhance appearance while prioritizing the hairline due to limited resources. We exercise caution with high density due to the possibility of damaged recipient skin, making these cases challenging to repair.

Less Extraction, Less Growth:

We encounter scenarios from commercial centers that promise unlimited hair, full coverage, and cheap hair transplants, often resulting in patients receiving significantly fewer grafts. At CARA Clinic, we treat such cases as fresh procedures and perform full hair transplants (repair transplants) to rectify the previous subpar hair transplants, ensuring our patients receive the results they deserve.

Possible Reasons for a Failed Hair Transplant

Patient-Related Factors:

Inadequate Donor Area: Insufficient healthy donor hair can limit the success of a hair transplant.

Poor Post-Op Care: Neglecting post-operative care instructions may lead to suboptimal results.

Medical Conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, excessive smoking during recovery, and scarring alopecia may hinder graft survival and result in poor hair growth after the transplant procedure. These factors can significantly impact the overall outcome of the treatment. 

Surgeon-Related Factors:

Surgical Skill: The surgeon's expertise plays a crucial role in achieving a successful hair transplant.

Inexperienced Team: A skilled and experienced surgical team is vital for a smooth and effective procedure.

Cases Requiring Hair Transplant Repair

  • Poor Density: In some cases, hair density is compromised or fails to achieve growth from previous hair transplant surgery. Implanting hair grafts in between previously transplanted hair can fix this issue, but it requires good surgical skill.

  • Unnatural & Straight Hairline Design: A straight-line hairline may appear unnatural post-transplant.
    (Highlighted word added) 

  • High Hairline Placement: Placing the hairline too high can lead to an oversized forehead and continued balding.

  • Low Hairline Placement: Over time, a low hairline can seem unnatural and may require correction.

  • Wide Scar After FUT/Stretched Scar: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) may result in a wide linear scar or a stretched scar. Hair transplantation can effectively address both concerns, making scars less visible and enhancing your overall appearance.

  • Bushy Temples: Excessive volume or implantation of thick hair during a transplant can lead to bushy temples, which will look unnatural. Placement of fine hair at the proper angle can create a more natural appearance. 

  • Overly Harvested Donor Area: A patchy, unsightly donor area might need correction in some cases, which happens because overharvesting has happened before. 

Approach for Revision Surgery of a Previous Hair Transplant

Removal of Improperly Placed Grafts: In cases where hair grafts were improperly placed, they may be removed and reimplanted at the correct angle, especially if grafts with multiple hairs are misplaced along the front hairline or inserted too perpendicular to the scalp surface.

Correction of Bushy Temples: Addressing bushy temples might require the removal of thick hair grafts, followed by the implantation of finer, single hairs to achieve a more natural appearance.

Repositioning of High Hairline: When necessary and if there's enough donor hair available, a high hairline can be lowered to achieve a balanced look.

Improving Hair Density in Weaker Areas: Correcting a hair transplant with poor density involves strategically placing hair grafts alongside existing hair. The use of ultrafine incisions, often created with Sapphire blades, minimizes damage to neighboring hair while achieving higher density. If donor hair on the scalp is limited, additional hair can be harvested from the beard or body to enhance overall density.

Camouflaging FUT Scars: Addressing stretched or large FUT scars may involve the use of beard or body hair if necessary. For poorly or overly harvested donor areas from FUE procedures, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) can provide effective correction.

Creating Natural Irregularities: Rectifying a straight hairline design can be achieved by introducing multiple micro and macro irregularities, resulting in a more natural and balanced appearance.

Frequently asked questions

In cases of a failed hair transplant, corrective measures are often possible. We may need to remove improperly transplanted hair grafts and reimplant them at the proper angle. If the donor area on your scalp is limited, we can enhance overall hair density by harvesting additional hair from the beard or body. Correction of the hairline's shape and positioning is also feasible in many instances. We recommend consulting an experienced hair transplant surgeon for further assistance.

Signs of a failed hair transplant may include a straight and unnatural hairline design, poor hair growth following the surgery, bushy temples, or the placement of multifollicular units along the hairline. If you notice any of these issues, it may indicate a suboptimal outcome from your hair transplant procedure.

If your scalp's donor area has limited hair availability, we have the option to augment overall hair density by harvesting hair from your beard or body.

While it's possible to harvest hair from a donor area that has been previously used in some cases, overharvesting during prior surgeries may limit the availability of donor hair. In such situations, your surgeon may recommend using body hair or beard hair as an alternative source for a hair transplant.
