Other Hair Transplant Repair

It is sometimes possible to promptly notice that a person has undergone a hair transplantation procedure. This is usually the case when the outcome does not have good aesthetics.

What are the signs of a bad Hair Transplant?

  • Artificial hairline (first line of hair does not look natural): These include hairlines too low, regular or even completely straight shape, presence of bundles, etcetera.
  • Too low hair density: In this condition the scalp is visible because the number of transplanted hairs was not sufficient to effectively cover the bald area.
  • Visible Scars: These occurs in the donor area as a consequence of transplantation using the ”strip” technique, when the resulting scar is very long or wide, especially if the patient uses short haircut. It may occurs also when there was an FUE overharvesting in the donor area, usually happens when a technician/non physician is doing the procedure.


Although a bad hair transplant outcome can significantly affect a person’s life, there are modern techniques that can often improve the cosmetic appearance of those who have had a poor hair restoration procedure. 

Our team mastered the techniques necessary to correct some shortcomings of other procedures, usually performed by less experienced professionals who are not properly certified or, by offering a lower price, do not take appropriate time for a thorough and careful surgery.


Correction methods include: 

  • insertion of follicular units of a single hair to blend with the other follicular units, the creation of micro and macro irregularities, for the unnatural frontal hairlines;
  • Removal of bundles, especially at the frontal  hairline, with transplanted hair redistribution in a natural looking manner. The removal is made with punches of 0,8 mm up to 1mm in diameter. In particular situations the removal can be made with a laser beam.
  • Correction of scars through hair transplantation to the scar zone. On more severe cases the scar may need to be removed surgically or camouflaged with dermopigmentation.
