Hair Transplant Revision In Metairie

Hair Transplant Revision- We can make it better at Bopp Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery

If your procedure was done 10-15 years ago, prior to today’s technology, possibly you were once pleased with but it may now look a bit strange.

The grafts may have been placed amongst your existing hair creating a natural result but over time you have continued to lose your non-transplanted hair, leaving the transplanted hair that doesn’t appear as natural as you may like.

The grafts that were done several years ago, in all likelihood, may have 5 or more hairs in each, making them too apparent. Today’s technology enables the skilled Surgeon to place micro grafts with 1, 2 and 3 hairs only in the hairline zone and amidst your thinner hair.  This process, along with the proper angle, placement and orientation of the recipient sites will create a virtually undetectable result.

Some patients do two or more Hair Transplant procedures over time to create their desired density. Perhaps you are very happy with your hair and simply want more hair.  The only limitations are sufficient donor hair, which even today is only attainable from your own scalp, and cost (which may range from $5k-$20k)

A skilled Surgeon can excise older, “pluggy” type grafts, if need be, make them smaller and place them in other areas of the scalp.

The best approach for medical treatments for hair loss should start with a consultation with a Dermatologist or Hair Transplant Surgeon in order to assess the cause, and to design an effective treatment plan.

The plan may be a combination of minoxidil, finasteride, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or laser light therapy. These methods help stop the ongoing loss of hair. More hair in an area that is now bald in most cases requires a Hair Transplant procedure.

The newest technique today is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. At Bopp Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery we use the NeoGraft device to achieve this less invasive and less painful method.  Many patients are able to return to work the next day (or in 3-5 days).

If you had a procedure several years ago and have a linear scar that remains in the donor are, using NeoGraft, we can place micro grafts into the scar in order to camouflage the previous donor scar.   The same can be done with previous cosmetic surgery scars.

Dr. Felix Bopp and Dr. Barbara Bobb have over 20 years’ experience with hair transplantation and are experienced NeoGraft doctors. Call to schedule a consultation with our office in Metairie, to have all your questions answered and to determine if you are a candidate for Hair Transplant Revision using NeoGraft, or if you simply want more hair in an area!
