The following hair transplant repair video was posted to our hair loss forum by Coalition hair restoration physician Dr. William Lindsey: In this video, we discuss the old hair transplant plug technique, why it gave the results it did and then take you through a repair case with 10 month followup showing good but not great improvement, because it takes longer in repair cases to get the results. Fortunately, he came in at more than 6 years out and looks great so we conclude with a short video combing his repair case and discuss the nuances plug repair patients need to know.

This question, from a member of our Hair Restoration Social Community and Discussion Forums, was answered by recommended hair transplant surgeon Dr. Blake Bloxham: Four months after my strip hair transplant, I’m struggling to find any hairs that have fallen out. They’re all like 1 inch long now. Maybe they fell out and grew back really fast? I had a lot of shock loss behind the transplanted area and although it’s filling in slightly better now, I’m not sure if that’s because the existing hairs just got longer or if the ones that fell out are actually growing back in. Do some people never recover from shock loss? There is a very small sub-sect of patients (somewhere in the 2% range) who do not shed or experience a post-op telogen (follicular sleeping) phase after hair restoration surgery. I’ve only seen this in one patient, and I’m still not sure. He stopped by the office at 3-4 months and already looked very good. However, I had previously performed 2 procedures on […]
The following hair transplant question was answered by recommended hair restoration surgeon Dr. Tejinder Bhatti: Can I get a hair transplant to grow a mohawk like this? I would be most happy with this hairstyle. I have also included a pic of my head. A mohawk like the one shown above is only achievable in hair transplant patients who have a good scalp donor site and do not have much advancing baldness. At most they have a Norwood Scale type 2-3 hair loss pattern. The mohawk can be achieved in this select category, but in two sittings 6 months apart. You have type 4 baldness and extensive miniaturization in the vertex area. I would not say you are a candidate for hair restoration surgery since your expectations are unrealistic.
