Hair Restoration Successes After Challenges
Dr. Daniel A. Danyo sees a lot of clients who want to look better, and among them are people who have already had a hair procedure that went wrong for one reason or another.
In this episode, Dr. Danyo shares his personal experience working with clients who sought out his expertise after a failed No-shave FUE hair procedure. He also discusses the common ways he fixes hair restoration mishaps so his clients’ self-esteem and confidence can be restored.
What Kinds of Things Can Go Wrong With Hair Transplants?
The doctor sees clients with a wide range of issues.
There are those who have had their hairline restored, but the shape created there just didn’t look natural.
Dr. Danyo sees hair restorations where the grafts weren’t staggered to blend in, or where the hair comes in at weird angles or grows in curly even though the client’s other hair is straight.
Another common issue is with graft density and health – Some places will give their clients fewer grafts than promised or damage the grafts, resulting in too-thin hair growth.
Still others may overharvest from donor sites, as happened with one memorable case: a woman who had a transplant to correct traction alopecia. They took too many grafts from other areas her the head, resulting in patchy areas that made her look like she might be ill.
Other cases Dr. Danyo has been called on to correct are hair restorations using older procedures like scalp reduction, and inferior practices like thick plugs that look like doll hair or transplants that cause strip scars.
The good news is that Dr. Danyo knows exactly how to correct these situations and give his clients a more natural, healthy look.
Dr. Danyo’s Techniques for Correcting Hair Restoration Issues
For those with not enough growth, Dr. Danyo adds carefully sourced and placed grafts in regular but not overly aligned patterns. The grafts usually come from other areas of the head, with auxiliary sources like the beard, chest and abdomen used if needed.
Overharvested donor areas may be corrected with grafts of their own, and things like strip scars can be successfully mitigated using techniques like grafting and micropigmentation.
Why Do Hair Restoration Mishaps Happen?
Some unfortunate situations are just the result of outdated procedures from decades ago, but a more common issue is that it isn’t always skilled doctors performing these hair restorations.
Dr. Danyo performs all his hair restoration procedures himself, and he has spent years learning cutting-edge techniques and perfecting his craft.
“I do all the extractions and I place all the grafts,” he says, taking care to get perfect depth, angulation and curl control while creating a density and placement that looks natural.
