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.

I have stuggled with hair loss since dying my hair when I was 18. It grew back, but became very sensitive to any type of treatment. I chanced dying it again when i was 47 – big mistake. I tried Rogaine, but had a very bad reaction. I tried Nioxin shampoo and it seemed to have stopped hair shedding, but I didn’t experience any hair regrowth. I am not having the same luck like last time and I’m still losing hair. Did something go wrong that cannot be corrected? Can hair treatments like coloring damage the hair follicle? Also, what happens when a follicle dies? I read that the follicle remains but that it just doesn’t produce any new hair. Though most hair coloring treatments are considered “safe” for your hair, none of them are considered good for your hair. Some hair dyes are so chemically enhanced that they can significantly damage your hair and its roots. Typically, ceasing hair treatment will stimulate hair regrowth like it did for you […]
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.
