Hair Transplant Reversal

Hair Transplant Reversal

Medical tourism is growing, and it appears that people are willing to travel around the world for a variety of medical treatments, most commonly hair transplants. Some of the most common locations to travel to for cheap hair transplants are Turkey and India. Some hair transplant clinics in those areas are willing to promise results for as little as $1,500. However, this presents significant risks for these travelling hair loss patients.

Many of these cheap hair transplants are being performed by unqualified or inexperienced surgeons, leaving the patient at risk of receiving sub-par medical care and mostly unsatisfactory results. For patients who have experienced this, hair transplant reversal may be a viable solution. We have had many patients come to us in search of a way to fix or revise their hair transplant. Below are some solutions to “undo” a disastrous hair transplant.

Can You Remove Unwanted Hair From A Hair Transplant?

The good news is that if you have received a hair transplant that is unsatisfactory, it is possible to remove those hairs and place them in a different area. Your transplanted hair grafts can be harvested from the area that you want to fix and placed in another area to correct or revise the mistakes made by your previous hair transplant clinic.

It’s important to keep in mind that removing and repositioning transplanted grafts may result in increased and more apparent scarring. This is a very important factor to consider, as your results may not look as natural as those from an initial hair transplant if it had been done properly. The other thing to keep in mind is that the cost of a revision will be more then your initial hair transplant. So it is worthwhile to get the procedure done right the first time.

Can Laser Hair Removal Be Used?

Laser hair removal works with intense, pulsating light beams that kill the hair follicles and therefore stop further hair growth. This makes it another possible way of removing hair in unwanted areas of the hairline, as it can stop hair growth from the unwanted transplanted follicles. However, you must keep in mind that once your transplanted hair has been lasered, it will not grow back. In addition, your hair transplant scars will become more visible.

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

Scalp micropigmentation is a non-surgical treatment for hair loss. It involves tattooing the scalp to create the illusion of a shaved head and a hairline with more density. This procedure is not just a method to be used for hair transplant revisions. However, if you decided to shave your transplanted hair, SMP can help disguise your hair transplant scars so that you are able to have your desired hairline without the need for additional hair transplant procedures.
