We routinely perform revision procedures including secondary hair transplantation procedures. The photo below (immediately after the procedure) shows a gentleman who is pleased with his initial hair transplantation from a different office but wished to have further refinement of his result.
He wished to have the frontal hairline thickened and advanced and wished to have the crown area (“baldspot”) filled in as well. We separately placed approximately 600 grafts in the front to create a more advanced hairline and taper this into the existing hairs, taking care to direct the hairs parallel to existing hairs and to irregularize the hairline for a very natural result.
In the photo of the back of the head, one can see that the grafts were placed in a whorl pattern, to match the existing hairs and then fixed native hairs, again to create a very natural, blended result.
As can be seen, it is already very difficult to see the donor area below the crown because we take great care to limit the amount of hair trimmed in the donor area and we perform a meticulous closure for the best possible postoperative appearance. The small scabs seen in the photos will follow up for the course of the next week, after which it would be extremely difficult to tell that he had procedure done. Also, for this next week while the scabs are in place, we permit our patients to wear a loose-fitting baseball cap or similar hat to conceal the scabs.
