Hair Restoration & Correction

Failed hair transplantation turns out to be a nightmare.

Today, many people are struggling against hair loss, so they are necessarily applying to hair transplantation as a last resort. Turkey is perhaps one of the most preferred centers in the world in this field. Therefore we’re particularly concerned by the growing interest in our country against plantation. It’s quite an opportunity; however, many inexperienced centers which are seizing the opportunity of the interest in this sector have begun to serve. As a consequence, the number of people who are not satisfied with the transplantation has been unfortunately increasing day by day. Dispelling negativity depends on hair transplant restoration and correction experts.

In which cases are hair restorations and corrections done?

* When transplanted hair grows at right angles, unlike existing hair, like a chia pet.

* When a large amount of hair loss has been seen as a result of incorrect transplanting.

* When it is necessary to eliminate image distortion caused by the transplanted hair at the wrong angle.

* When it is desired to not have any visible traces, because of the plantation made by FUT method also known as classical method.

* When hair seen not as a whole but as strips in the classical method of the transplantations.

Almost all the correction operations have been done to correct the errors of non-experts in such operations. Therefore, without falling into the same trap a second time, it is important to get help from the person skilled in the field. Contrary to popular belief, correction operations require serious expertise, because of insufficient resources and a more demanding implementation. So the process can be much more challenging and longer compared to a normal transplantation. Sometimes even more than one session may be needed to see the best results. For this reason, people who have hair transplantation for the first time, not to be in need of such a process have to make the right choice; this is the first aspect that should be considered.

A corrective hair transplant is performed on hair that has been incorrectly transplanted or which has had a negative reaction to the transplant. The correction is performed only if the initial hair transplant doesn’t work out. If the initial hair transplant surgery is not performed well, the recipient will not have healthy and natural looking hair, and this will need to be corrected.
It takes time to realize that a hair transplant procedure has gone awry. However, even if the issue is noticed late, the situations can be overcome with a specialist.

After 10 days from the initial hair transplant surgery, scabbing will subside and the growing process will begin. It can take up to 1 year to determine whether the transplanted hair is growing well or growing properly.

Hair transplantation provides results tempered to a preferred method; for example, with the FUT method, hair transplantation is preformed in strips, which compromises the natural look of the result. Transplanting single hair follicles one at a time provides a more natural appearance. For this, the FUE method is recommended. Using the FUE technique, hair roots taken from the back of the neck are transferred individually, which improves the success rate of the applied treatment and provides a natural appearance.

When poeple had the FUT method of hair transplantation and have a FUT scar on their scalp and wish to hide it with a new technique,
When it is desired that hair transplanted at the wrong angle be corrected,
When poorly transplanted hair doesn’t grow again,
When a natural appearance can’t be achieved because of transplanting in strips via the older FUT method,
When hair is implanted in the wrong direction, vertically for instance, people’s hair can look more like a lawn. This situation can be solved with corrective hair transplant surgery.

The two most important factors in avoiding the necessity for corrective hair transplants in the first place are the choosing of the specialist and the method that isused.

After deciding on a hair transplant, you should consult with an experienced expert and ensure you are working with a professional. In addition, the FUE technique is the preferred method of transplantation.

This method, which is effective at hiding scars and correcting poorly transplanted hair,does provide a permanent solution. Treatment may be repeated more than once if one has a damaged donor area due to failed hair transplant. If the initial donor area is unusable, other parts of the body(BHT) can be used as a second donor source.
If you want to avoid this kind of hair restoration, you should choose your hair transplant center very carefully. Ask them what their experience is and also ask to see some reference pictures of past hair transplants they have performed.
