The Different Types of Corrective Hair Transplant Operation

Hair loss is not the only hair problem that people experience. Hair thinning, depleted hair and bald patches are all other common hair-related issues. Despite this, corrective hair transplant operations can sometimes remedy hair conditions in men and women. Here you can find out more about different corrective transplant operations that take place at SHIFT Hair Transplant and other major hair clinics.

Scalp Reduction

This technique involves taking skin from the crown and stretching the edges of a more hirsute patch of skin to a close. Experts will then stitch this area together to reduce the bald scalp partially. The scalp reduction process is not that common today.

Graft Excision

Graft excision is a modern restorative or corrective surgery. In fact, the FUE technique is an excellent graft excision technique. Usually, experts will use the FUE technique for the removal of larger grafts. They will then dissect these grafts again following the hair’s follicular units. The units can then be taken and replanted in a pattern that looks more natural. We call this technique hair graft excision.

Hair Camouflaging

This method involves the use of micrografts consisting of one, two or three small hair follicular units. These are handy for the transplanting hair in front. It is also possible to use them to conceal the larger grafts and improve their appearance. This will make them look more natural and aesthetically pleasing. Furthermore, the medical team will only take the larger grafts, reducing the cost and time of the process. The hair camouflaging process is very useful and it can save a larger number of grafts.

Combined Repair

Depending on the current condition of the hair issue, surgeons at SHIFT Hair Transplant can use a corrective surgery along with graft excision and camouflage to obtain the best results. Such operations involve only removing the grafts that are not suitable for camouflage. Remember that this type of operation requires the skill of an expert hair transplant in Turkey surgeon. Such a surgeon will be able to strike a perfect balance between camouflaging and graft excision.

Scar Fixing

The Follicular Unit Extraction technique can camouflage or help mend the scars from a scalp reduction or strip harvesting process. A scalp reduction process may deplete the donor hair quality and make the scalp extremely tight. This, in turn, can make corrective surgeries difficult. However, the FUE technique can help to remedy all of these issues. The process involves taking some of the donor area’s hair and placing it on the scar tissue to help conceal it. Although this hair transplant in Turkey technique may require multiple sessions, patients can expect very reasonable results.
