Repair of FUE procedure


#1

Hi and thanks for a good forum,

I had a FUE procedure of 1200 grafts done 18 months ago at a clinic in Sweden, due to forum rules i cant mention the clinics name but you can self make your guess.

After 1 year I realized that this was no good as the hairline was to dense packed and on my right side half of the grafts recieved were so misangled that they today are growing min total different angle compare to my existing hair.

The new grafts are growing horizontally from the middle all the way to my temple and behind that transplanted area my existing hair is growing vertically down towards my forehead.

I am of course shocked that anyone calling him self a HT doctor can do this as you can compare it to a carpenter who cant nail the bolt from right direction.

I have recieved some compensation but not all i asked for, they dont have any explantion to this horrible result and even if they did it would probably be a lie.

Was the doctor drunk? on drugs? or just not sharp we will never know

I personally think the answer is that he was sitting in a nice position with the instrument that he would not change and the result i have to live with.

I have removed maybe one inch of my hairline to get rid of those large and 90 degrees angled grafts and the hairline looks ok now

Now to my question,

I wonder how they repair misangled grafts like this, say that is 300 grafts behind the hairline that need to be reangled, they are growing like a tube up towards the head and lifting all the hairs who wants to fall down, it is impossible to wear any hairstyle, i have tried most hairstyles and when cut short it looks really unnatural due to the misangulation.

All tips and help or links to people who hade similar problems are highly appreciated

Hello Wicked,

It would be a good idea to consult with some of the top doctors that are listed here on this message board. Do not let travel be an issue when you are choosing your doctor to go with for your repair job.

Also, I understand the urge to want to remove the grafts you are not happy with, but you may be doing more harm then good when it comes to possibly getting the result repaired. I would leave things as is for now and send in your photos to some highly regarded clinics for consultation.

Wicked, I am a repair patient and researched for well over 10 years before I finally found an ethical clinic that was highly specialized in fue. Do yourself a favor and contact BHR in Brussels. They have a wealth of knowledge and can easily explain to you what it is you need to do. Trust me you will not regret making the phone call or sending the e-mail. All the best on solving your problem.

Check my blog for a link to pictures of my recent repair work. I traveled from the USA so don’t let distance be a factor.

Can you upload some pictures? It is hard to visualize what the problem is without seeing some pictures. You can also email the pictures to hairsite@aol.com if you prefer.

I have taken som pictures but as the hairs are all growing in all directions making it a mess, it is difficult to see the problem from a picture.

As I live in Europe i will be sending an email or call to BHR

I was just curious if there was a thread with a similar kind of problem as I couldnt find anything like it when i googled, it seems to be a rather unusual mistake done.

The thing is that I have lost more then a year socialising due to my freaky look and difficulties styling my hair and would like to have this repaired in one session and i was curious if they can extract the misangled grafts and then insert them again in the same area in correct angles.

From reading the forum I understand that they can not insert he grafts in the same hole where they extracted from.

The other option would be to kill the misangled grafts and then go to a clinic and have new ones inplanted, this is little bit hard to swollow as you have paid for this misangled 300 grafts and maybe will need them in the future.

What do you think, hav you ever heard about this kind of problem before?

Wicked, it’s a common problem with clinics that don’t know what they are doing, it’s poor placement of the grafts. Don’t make the mistake of jumping into any repair work until you learn more about how the procedure is suppose to be performed and more about the industry itself. Contacting BHR is a good first step.

My results are not going to be showcase results since I am a repair patient and I have very limited donor. But I could tell by looking at my recent repair work that all the hairs were angled in the right direction. But I also knew that one of the technicians that was placing my grafts has been around for a very long time. I know this because I have been researching for 10 years, this is why I had to travel outside the USA. Take your time and make the right decision.

My motive for posting is only to try and help others avoid the mistakes that I have made. I don’t like what I continue to see happening in this business all in the name of greed.
