In Hair Transplant Repair, Can You Re-use Hair Follicles from Old ‘Plug’ Grafts?May 3rd, 2007
Q: I had several prior hair transplants that left me with a pluggy look, I was hoping to re-utilize the removed hair and re-implant it, perhaps in the front as a new, more recessed hairline. It is possible?
A: The hair from the excised grafts is always re-implanted.
The grafts that are removed are dissected into individual follicular units and then placed back in the recipient area in a more natural distribution and angle. See Patient LKE’s before and after photos in the Hair Transplant Repair Photo Gallery.Related Posts:
