Discuss this patient on our Hair Restoration Forum

Regulars of this forum will notice we are posting, once more, a series of pictures to illustrate the correction of a bad surgery. There is a good reason to this choice. In Europe, the average quality of the Hair Transplants is far behind the results reached in the United States.  It is thus still frequent to welcome patients having recently undergone a bad surgery. A patient who is looking for a surgeon that will correct the previous surgery takes a great care to find an expert able to guarantee a quality work.

This patient has undergone his previous surgeries in France, with the same doctor: 5 mini hair transplants from 1994 to 2006! The aspect was typically unnatural with large plugs (FU4 to FU6) on the hairline.
The strategy has been developed in two steps. The largest grafts were removed via a FUE punch first. Then, the patient came back to my clinic six days later for the surgery itself. A big part of the scar in the donor area was removed, and the grafts were recovered. The patient did not want to be shaved
.
As usual, I asked the patient to massage the donor area actively before the surgery mainly in this case, the donor area has been damaged five times, so it was impoverished and the elasticity reduced.  The patient did it very well so finally the laxity strongly improved and finally instead of about 1500 grafts, we reached 3038 grafts for 6806 hair. 675 FU1 1062 FU2 897 FU3 329 FU4.

The pictures show the situation at time 0, for the removal of the plugs, and then at Day 6 when the surgery takes place. Those pictures were taken and sent by the patient, I do not have any other post-op pictures of him. Their quality is not bad.

In a few months, the regrowth masked almost completely the former result. This patient is definitely very happy of his new situation.

It is important to emphasize the use of a great number of single grafts (FU1): 675. Thanks to them, it has been possible to ???erase??? the aspect of the old grafts.
