Hair transplant is world proven method for hair restoration considered as the permanent natural solution for hair loss but still there are number of cases come in front that are seeking for revision hair transplant even after the advanced FUT and FUE method
Success of the hair transplant depends and varies with the patients as the extent of hair loss, age of patient, health, commitment for after care, expectations for the results and many more so the tendency of revision of treatment can also vary from patient to patient.
Hence it is important to know about the reason for this revision hair restoration among the patients. Basically it can be happened due to following two conditions
Sometimes patients are happy with prior treatment and want more grafts
When the patients did not received the satisfactory results
Few patients are there that go for repeated FUE surgery to conceal their linear scar caused by strip method.
In the first case when the patient have first satisfactory results of the surgery but problem is severe so to have the more density patient decide to go for the treatment once more.
In the second case patients go for again transplantation as in the first they could not get the desired results due to various reasons like progressive hair loss, eligibility for the treatment was not there , treatment taken in initial stage of hair loss and even due to poor quality treatment offered by some price cutting , unauthorized or new clinics. In that case patients go for another surgery to restore their hair for permanent basis.
For the repeated hair transplant surgeon must be experienced enough to detect the reason for this revision and to understand that how the problem can be addressed. Revision for the FUT method or FUE method is done in different ways as follows
Revision after FUT method
In the both reasons of revision after FUT method donor area remain virgin and so the surgeon can perform another strip or FUE surgery depending upon problem to give desired and permanent results but the second time choice between FUE or FUT must be done after the careful assessment of the requirement of the grafts to address the problem.
Revision after FUE transplant
After the follicular unit extraction method the surgery must be done carefully as it is important to examine that how many grafts were extracted for the first time and what is requirement to be filled this time.
However the FUE surgery is least invasive surgery but still the grafts must be extracted carefully according to the last reason for failure of surgery and even most of the surgeon after scalp hair transplantation with this method recommend for the body hair transplant to attain the desired results.
Donor area after the FUE surgery remain safe and unaffected but still the surgeon must be experienced in plucking the best quality grafts from the scalp so that second time patient can get the utmost satisfaction that he could not get in the first attempt.
