With the advancement of Hair Transplant, there is an increasing demand for the Hair Transplantation Revision procedures. Hair Transplant itself is a restoration technique. And with the rising number of people undergoing hair transplant procedures through Strip (FUT) or FUE technique, more people are experiencing a hair transplant revision surgery.
REASONS FOR REVISION SURGERY
- Patients are happy with the initial result but want to increase overall density.
- Patients are not satisfied with the initial procedure outcomes.
So, there is a misconnection or misexpression of the point written on many websites: 100% success or 100% guarantee of the hair transplant procedure. Merely saying, there is ‘NO’ 100% success/guarantee in Hair Transplantation, just like in any other surgical procedure, especially the aesthetic ones where success differs from patient to patient. If any hair restoration surgeon or hair transplant clinic anywhere in the world claiming a 100% guarantee of results, please be careful, maybe you are dealing with a quack. From a medical ethics point of view, there should be no such claim.
We usually approach and execute the revision hair transplant in the following manner:
Number one is to counsel the patient for a realistic expectation and chances of success & failure. In many cases, the implanted grafts have grown, but the patient expected a surgically impossible density. We carefully evaluate the results of patients to make a fair assessment of post-operative results. And there are many reasons the results may not show up, i.e., smoking, no proper care after the hair transplant, not following the instructions.
In many cases, a revision may be the solution. But we recommend our patients to wait for 12-18 months, and if there are no expected results, you may need a professional assessment for revision surgery.
REVISION HAIR TRANSPLANT AT ACTUAL HAIR CLINIC
At Actual Hair Clinic, we do understand that hair restoration procedure is an aesthetic procedure, and the criteria of success in this field are the results of the patients. But sometimes, the result may not meet the expectations of the patient. It happens due to many factors mentioned above. And when the initial procedure doesn’t bring satisfactory results, patients look for revision surgery. Revision of the initial hair transplant is one of our areas of expertise at Actual Hair Clinic, and we have reached satisfying results in this group of patients.
At Actual Hair Clinic, we do promise rational and realistic outcomes to our patients. We do not give false hopes and falsify the number of grafts and the results of our patients. Our main advantage is that we do extensive planning of the area we are going to work on – head, back of the head, face, and forehead assessed thoroughly. We examine hair follicles, and procedure accurately planned, the approximate number of grafts calculated with their area of distribution. The patient is informed about all possible consequences understandably, so he or she has a clear idea about all the aspects and outcomes of the surgery.
We also give patients briefs before surgery, after the surgery, and on control or wash day. The total number of submissions is 3. In these briefs, we inform the patients about the transplant basics, some terminology, after the transplant care, the time-lapse after the transplant. We do it thoroughly, so the patients feel comfortable and safe. Our patients continue to get online support from a professional and trustworthy team, and they don’t feel deceived and disappointed even after the transplant performed.
At Actual Hair Clinics, the surgeries performed and directly supervised by our physician who has long-standing experience in this field and modern device and approaches used for the treatment. All patients informed in detail about the entire revision hair transplant process based on realistic plans.
