What would it mean if you got a bad hair transplant?… Hair standing straight up on end, poor hair follicle survival rate, scarring, pain, damage to the donor area ruining the possibility of a future transplant….the list goes on. 

The motivating reason for getting a hair transplant is to look good, to improve confidence and self-esteem. So why do people risk having a cheap procedure when so much relies on achieving an aesthetically pleasing and natural looking result? False promises from sub-par clinics is one reason, another is that people suffering from psychological stress caused by hair loss can be “ready for anything” to try and alleviate their suffering. The most important step is to first speak to a hair loss expert to understand the cause of your hair loss and to discuss the various treatment options available to you.

If you suffer from hair loss, answer these 3 questions to discover the best treatment option for you.

Hair Transplants Gone Wrong – Consumer Warning

Warning Signs To Look Out For

When researching your hair restoration options, there are some things that you need to prioritise to ensure the best result:

Natural Results

A bad transplant can look just as bad as a bad wig. To save cost, some clinics use technicians rather than doctors and even worse, they can use two technicians to do the implantation so you end up with half a head of hair on one angle and the other half on a slightly different angle.

Care of the Follicles

Taking the utmost of care of the follicles during extraction and implantation affects the survival rate. There should be minimal handling of the follicles and they should be stored in a growth solution whilst waiting for implantation.

Care of the Donor Area

Scarring in the donor area poses two significant issues; 1) the scar may be visible under short hair, and 2) the damage may result in inadequate follicles being available for use if a second transplant is needed in the future.
