Hair Transplant Repair

The team at HRBR has treated many patients who, as the result of work carried out at other clinics, need a hair transplant repair.  The surgeons at HRBR are highly experienced and skilled in this specialised work.

These patients normally request hair transplant repair work due to large unnatural looking hair plugs, scaring from previous procedures or hairlines that are unnatural in appearance as the clinic they attended neglected to take time in planning the design of their patient’s hairlines. See our video on the importance of hairline design for more information on this important step in the hair transplant procedure.  Almost all have had previous bad experiences and present to HRBR looking for reassurance, expertise and a solution to fix their bad hair transplant. At HRBR we treat these cases sympathetically, professionally and most importantly successfully.

Case study – A hair transplant repair at HRBR

Patient: 53 year old male
Attending HRBR since: 2009
Challenges: Hair plugs in frontal area and scarring on back of head

Hair transplant repair - before and after

The before and after photo above demonstrates the successful hair transplant repair carried out at HRBR for this patient who had hair plug grafts inserted previously at a clinic in London.

The hair plugs inserted at this London based clinic left the patient with bad scarring at the back of his head and visible and unnatural plug grafts towards the front of the hairline. Our experienced and qualified surgical team took the time to assess the situation and developed a plan to remove the hair plugs and repair the hairline with hair transplant surgery.

As part of this hair transplant repair the team at HRBR initially removed some of the hair plugs in order to best prepare the patient’s hairline for the transplant. We then allowed the area time to heal in advance of the hair transplant.

What the patient had to say (HRBR patient testimonial, September 2017)

I spoke to a friend recently who informed that he was thinking of buying a sports car from the 1990s now worth about €25,000.  I said to myself, he must be cracked! Then, I reflected on my appointment with HRBR the previous week and what I was planning to spend for my own hair transplant (€10,000).  It occurred to me that he may question my sanity if I had been upfront with him.

We are both what you may describe as ordinary Joe soaps with very ordinary bank balances.  It was at this point I concluded that we all take joy in life from different things, so I decided I would get a loan at my local credit union and applied under medical expenses.  My repayments are approximately 35 euros a week (The same as I pay for my T.V. sports channel package).

While its only 3 days since my transplant I feel it’s money well spent.  The whole experience from start to finish was first class with Maurice and crew delivering a professional and painless procedure.  The transplant day was long, but I managed to see some great movies which were available on demand during the procedure.  This is my second transplant with HRBR (see Testimonial Dublin June 2011 photos with plugs).  I know the results and the feel-good factor will be worth every cent I borrowed.

If you’re into fancy cars go for it!  Personally, I just love the confidence a full head of hair has given me!

Hair Transplant Repair – Choosing a Clinic

As the experience and skill of hair transplant surgeons, the quality of the procedures and the results can vary hugely from one hair transplant clinic to another it is vital to consider your options carefully before proceeding with hair transplant surgery. The procedure is permanent and while repair work can be very successful, a poorly executed hair transplant will always limit your options in dealing with your hair loss in the future. This Guardian article about the KSL Group in the UK is a good example of why it’s important to do thorough research before choosing a hair transplant clinic.

As one of our patients noted “You never remember the cost of a good hair transplant, but you never forget the cost of a bad one”.
