A hair transplant can be performed twice

5 factors that contribute to a "failed hair transplant"

Fear is a natural human reaction, especially before an aesthetic surgery such as a hair transplant. In addition, the satisfaction of a successful hair transplant exceeds patient expectations. If you are planning to undergo FUE hair transplant, it is important to educate yourself about the procedure. It will come in handy to familiarize yourself with the potential problems you may encounter and how to avoid them.

Why do some hair transplants fail in general?

We did a study of unsuccessful hair transplants from all over the world, and although the patients who had hair restoration surgery were different, they were all unsatisfied with the results. We have identified the 5 main reasons for these patients' dissatisfaction. What could be the possible causes of failure of the

Be hair transplant?

1. Inexperience of the surgeon

Practice makes perfect, or the phrase “we learn by practice” is especially true of hair transplants. FUE or the DHI hair transplants are meticulous procedures that require a high level of perseverance. Mastering this skill takes a lot of time and effort, and it is undesirable for a patient to be classified as a "subject". In some cases, the hair transplant is performed by an inexperienced surgeon so the transplant is not done properly and the procedure fails. However, the transplant is one of the most important stages of hair transplantation and plays a crucial role in the final look after hair restoration. Experienced doctors are familiar with the efficient use of the donor-recipient ratio. Less experienced doctors are prone to errors in predicting the permanent safe donor area for hair transplantation. When doctors harvest follicular groupings obtained through improper extraction from the donor area and from non-donor areas, the unfavorable end-results of a bad procedure will ultimately affect both the recipient and the donor area. The first donor area in hair transplant surgery from which healthy follicles are obtained is the back of the patient's head. In addition, beard and chest hair can be used as additional donor resources. Donor hair from the back of the patient's head, used either alone or in combination with other body hair for part of the treatment, provides when properly planned and

Transplant natural looking results.

Hair follicles extracted from different donor areas using inappropriate techniques can lead to drastic results. Still, over-harvesting grafts performed by inexperienced surgeons can cause significant damage to the donor zone. This, in turn, can lead to a drastic result that is equivalent to baldness. The term "overspread" refers to the excessive removal of grafts from the donor area. This condition often results in the appearance of large areas being missing or thinning hair in the lower part of the scalp. Experience stands out as an essential factor when it comes to operations that require a complex knowledge of the technology. When searching for a FUE or DHI hair transplant surgeon, the surgeon's experience should be an important factor to consider. Don't run the risk of being the "victim" of trial and error analysis at a hair transplant clinic. Your evaluation should be based on finding a specialist who has years of experience as a hair transplant surgeon, as well as reviews and testimonials from former hair transplant patients.

2. Inadequate post-operative care

Post-hair transplant care is just as important as the operation itself. As part of your hair transplant, your doctor will provide you with follow-up care instructions as well as comprehensive information on the post-operative treatment that you will carry out over the next few days and weeks. It has been observed that extensive crusting around their hair comb has been observed in some patients. Scratching at this point or improperly washing your hair can negatively affect the survival of the graft and the bottom line. In some cases, severe infections can occur due to poor hygiene. The good news is that, by and large, you really have to be "reckless" to cause permanent damage like this. During the postoperative period, following the instructions for washing hair, which should be done gently, avoiding exposure to the sun within the allotted time, or abstaining from exercise, is crucial to achieve satisfactory results in all respects. To avoid post-operative complications, follow your doctor's detailed instructions and advice. If you have any concerns, call your doctor immediately.

3. Not being an ideal candidate for a hair transplant

Hair transplant can be an amazing procedure that changes people's lives, but keep in mind that not everyone is a good candidate for hair transplant. Before surgery, it is important to have a detailed medical history and information about the patient's genetics, issues such as the surgical procedure, and the postoperative stage. During the medical exam, your doctor will perform various tests and special procedures to assess indicators such as future effects of hair loss patterns, your hair loss classification, and the hair loss diagnosis. Understanding these key factors will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. You have probably heard of people who have undergone unsuccessful hair transplantation. Such a negative result can occur if the patient is not a suitable candidate for the procedure. There is no need to be afraid! It is not that difficult to determine whether or not a person is eligible for an FUE hair transplant. Sometimes the degree of hair loss may still not be sufficient for the person to undergo a hair transplant. In other words, you may not be ready for the procedure just yet. This can seem very appealing, but you may need to experience further hair loss to get satisfactory results. If you do not undergo a hair transplant at the correct stage of hair loss, the transplanted hair may look strange. Just think for a moment, if you continue to experience hair loss every day and undergo a hair transplant too soon, the transplanted area may look like a deserted island after a while. On the other hand, if you have an inadequate donor hair supply, you will most likely have to look for other options. In cases where the donor areas remain weak and insufficient to provide the amount of hair for the transplant, it will result in an unfavorable outcome.

Because as soon as the follicular units are extracted from the donor area, these hair follicles no longer grow back. If you don't have enough hair follicles to remove from the back of your head, there may be severe hair thinning in the neck area after surgery. Another factor that plays an essential role in a successful / unsuccessful hair transplant is the main cause of hair loss. Your doctor will investigate this problem during the medical exam and diagnose the cause of your hair loss. You may be thinking, "After all, hair loss is hair loss," is the underlying cause of hair loss so important? Ultimately, you want to get your hair back. However, hair loss is not always permanent. All in all, you might not even need a hair transplant. For example, if your hair loss is due to stress, you still have a chance.

Hair loss caused by stress is usually temporary, for this reason performing an FUE or DHI hair transplant on bald areas that are exposed to temporary hair loss can lead to the formation of a strange and irregular appearance in the future. During the medical examination, your doctor will consider and evaluate all of these elements. This detailed assessment will determine your eligibility for a hair transplant and the likelihood of successful results.

4. Dishonesty in hair transplant clinics

As with any profession, unfortunately, not all people who work in the medical field are always good and honest. As well as doing research at the doctor's level of experience, you should also do research to assess the credibility of hair transplant clinics. Ultimately, you will want to work with a hair transplant doctor who is honest and not after your money. A hair transplant clinic that only tries to make money from you will not care about your well-being, health and a satisfactory hair transplant result. On the flip side, an experienced FUE hair transplant surgeon and staff will cater to your concerns and requirements precisely. During your medical exam, you want a doctor and staff you can count on and speak to, rather than someone who doesn't make the slightest effort to get in touch with you. If during your exam you feel that something is missing, don't hesitate to consider other options. Such unreliable clinics, which prioritize their own commercial interests, are more “numbers” than quality. They advertise themselves by stating that they will transplant a large number of grafts. In a case like this where the hair transplant surgeons are not removing the number of grafts they originally determined, you shouldn't have a problem with it. Of course, since you will not be able to count each graft removed, you may not be able to accurately count the number. For this reason, the reputation of the doctor and the clinic, as well as patient assessment, is very important. You wouldn't want money down the drain or denied you a successful hair transplant.

5. Misunderstanding

The subject we are going to bring up here is not a "failure". Hair transplantation is only the first step of the procedure, after which the postoperative recovery phase begins, a process that extends over a longer period of time. Some people tend to jump to conclusions by declaring the surgery unsuccessful before the process is complete and with no chance of hair growth. You can expect to see the visible results of the hair transplant within at least 12 months, but every now and then you can get impatient or question the result. The desire to see remarkable results as soon as possible is completely normal. Before the procedure, you should consult your doctor or medical advisor to find out what results the hair transplant can be expected to have in the next few months.
