What Happens When My Hair Surgery Goes Wrong?
If you have previously undergone a hair transplant and are unsatisfied with your results, NE Hair can help you achieve the results you had hoped for with hair restoration revision surgery at our state-of-the-art center. Unsuccessful, unfavorable outcomes from hair transplant surgery often occur because of technical errors, poor planning on the part of the doctor, and unforeseeable complications.
Technical Errors and Complications
If your scalp has a plugged, tightened, cobblestone, or ridged appearance, we can dramatically improve your results using a number of reparative surgical techniques. Technical errors generally occur when a specialist uses sub-standard transplantation techniques. When hair follicles are placed at incorrect angles or inappropriate depths, the newly transplanted hair will grow in the wrong directions and each transplant will look unnatural or pitted.
Our surgeon’s patience, surgical precision, and desire to produce the most natural-looking results is what sets us apart. Every hair follicle extracted, processed, and transplanted is handled with the utmost care and implanted with absolute accuracy. The advanced methods used by NE Hair result in minimal scarring and swelling, and an aesthetically pleasing hairline that is positioned exactly as a natural hairline would be. We identify the unique needs of each individual patient and craft a custom-tailored treatment plan, which minimizes the risk of complications and helps to ensure the best possible results.
Our Techniques for Hair Transplant Scar Repair
Some amount of scarring is inevitable with any surgical hair loss treatment. Older methods, a change in hairstyle, or an inexperienced surgeon can lead to more extensive scarring. At New England Center for Hair Restoration, our doctors can perform hair transplant scar repair procedures at our Boston, MA office. With their advanced techniques, they can heal and repair previous scarring so you can feel confident about your appearance again.

Causes of Hair Transplant Scars
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are newer hair transplant methods. These methods generally result in little to no scarring, especially when performed by an experienced surgeon. With FUT, the scar is a single thin line and with FUE, there are several small, white, round scars. Both of these types of scars are easily concealed. Unfortunately, scarring with hair transplant procedures is common and may require surgical repair to correct. Causes of scarring after a hair transplant surgery may include:
- The use of older techniques
- Improper execution of current techniques (FUT and FUE)
- Poor healing by the patient
- Choosing a shorter haircut to reveal scarring that was previously concealed
The scars may result from plugs, hair grafts, or a stretched or widened scar at the donor site. At New England Center for Hair Restoration, our doctors are meticulous with each hair transplant they perform to keep scarring to a minimum.
Techniques for Hair Transplant Scar Repair
Fortunately, there are steps we can take to repair these scars. The method we use to repair the scarring depends on the size and location of the scar, as well as if there are any donor hair reserves left to use. In addition to the below methods, we may use cortisone injections to smooth thick scars. For indented scars, we can use a dermal filler to raise them up. We may also use laser treatment to create a smoother surface.
Scar excision, or revision, is one of the most effective scar repair techniques. This method changes the direction of scars. In some cases, this may mean excising the scars in the same manner as we would a donor strip with the FUT method. The end result is a single, precise scar.
When donor hair is still available, we can camouflage the site rather than creating a new scar. With this technique, we can transplant the donor hair directly onto the existing scar. This helps to conceal the existing scar.
