Revision hair restoration is a corrective procedure for patients who are not fully satisfied with the results of a previous hair transplant. You may be unhappy with your hairline, desire increased density, or wish to camouflage the look of “hair plugs” with new treatment methods that provide more natural-looking results. No matter what your goals, we can help.

What is revision hair restoration?

Hair transplantation is a rapidly evolving field, and some techniques that were popular years ago are outdated. If you were not happy with your initial hair transplant surgery, a revision hair restoration can improve or correct the results with our advanced techniques at Sistine Hair Restoration in Pittsburgh. In some cases, errors were made in the initial hair restoration procedure, leaving an uneven look at the hairline or causing the hair to appear patchy or uneven.

Correction of these errors is a highly specialized task that requires a very skilled technician.

At Sistine Hair Restoration in Pittsburgh, we perform revision hair restoration to improve and elevate the results of previous hair restoration procedures.

Who is a candidate for revision hair restoration?

If you have previously undergone a hair restoration procedure that failed to meet your expectations, you are likely to be a good candidate for revision hair restoration. You may be experiencing one or more of the following:

  • An asymmetric or unnatural looking hairline
  • Hair plugs that look unnatural 
  • Additional hair loss since your initial procedure
  • A desire for higher hair density
  • Visible scarring or hypopigmentation

What to expect

Your first step will be a consultation with Dr. Leong. He will examine the current state of your hair and hairline, and will thoroughly go over your wishes and expectations. His consultation with you will help to achieve your aesthetic goals for your revision hair restoration procedure.

Your revision hair restoration procedure

Revision hair restoration is performed with local anesthetic and is typically pain-free. The procedure itself will vary depending on the area to be treated. In some cases, we will remove any hair follicles which were incorrectly placed during your initial procedure and restore the area with new hair grafts to achieve a natural look.

The hair follicles will be expertly placed where they are needed to achieve your goals. If you have hair plugs, it may be necessary to have some surgically removed. For others, the existing grafts are left in place and we will strategically add a few hair follicles to achieve a more natural, even look. Again, this will all depend on your unique case and your aesthetic goals.
