I have had two sessions of FUE hair transplant to my hairline and frontal with two different doctors in Europe, the first one of 1000 grafts in 2003, and last year additional 1000 grafts, total of 2000 grafts.
As I was still losing my hair, I wanted more density to my hairline and beyond it and close the angles which was left open. This procedure and doctor completely ruined my appearance by adding many large grafts in the hairline and just filling in the already straight hairline instead of making it irregular with single grafts. The two other main things that went wrong was the angle the grafts was set in, on one side of the hairline he inserted the grafts to follow the existing hair and this side I am happy with today. On the other side he did something that I still today dont understand, he must had a total blackout of some kind, he placed the new grafts pointing to my temple crossing my existing hair from the first procedure growing slightly back.
That makes my hair on this side problematic to shape as it is like a nest where the hairs are growing in all different angles, which leaves the hairline look unnatural and this side very strange in all.
My questions are:
– Is this a lack of skill from the doctor to place the insertions in this wrong and unnatural angle on this side?
– How to correct this in the best and easiest way?
– How to correct the multiple grafts in and the beyond the hairline?
– Should he do the repair for free or pay my money back so i can go to a professional doctor to correct me?
My doctor is only thinking about money and not his reputation by telling me that the result is natural and that I should be happy with my results. In my opinion he doesnt have the skills for this kind of work because its so big mistakes done by him.
The hair transplant surgeon has full control on the angle and direction of transplanted hair. If it was placed in an odd angle or direction (that does not look natural), it was due to the surgeon’s mistake. Unfortunately, you cannot correct the wrong angle or direction of hair after it has been transplanted. You can possibly have some repair work, but it will never solve your problem 100% and it will likely be very costly.
If you believe you had bad work and do not trust your doctor, why would you go back to the same surgeon?
Before you do anything, you should consider seeing another doctor for a second opinion to confirm if what you are describing is actually true. I do not know you or your doctor and I really cannot judge if your transplant was a failure. I am just going by your word.
Finally, this type of situation is the very reason why you need to choose a competent and skilled doctor. Not all hair transplant surgery is the same.
