Can a bad hair transplant be fixed?
We're often asked: "can you fix a bad hair transplant"?
Yes - we can fix a bad hair transplant, assuming there are enough follicles remaining on your head within the donor region to harvest from.
Typically, bad transplants fall into three camps 1) unnatural looking hairline, 2) low density, 3) linear scarring from the old strip method.
A bad hair transplant with an unnatural looking hairline can be fixed through softening or simply changing its shape. Meanwhile a low density bad hair transplant can be fixed by inserting additional follicles into the desired area. Lastly, bad hair transplants with linear scarring can be minimized by inserting new follicles directly into the scar itself, to help minimize the appearence of the scar, or by having SMP performed in that area. SMP stands for "scalp micro-pigmentation", which is essentially a small tattoo made to look like hair follicles to cover the area.
