    I’ve had a hair transplant via NEOGRAFT 12 months ago. After the surgery, I developed folliculitis. I’ve had practically no growth. It seems that it is a failed transplant perhaps because of the folliculitis. Or maybe human error during procedure. My physician is not giving me adequate answers and told me that we should do a second procedure. Naturally, I am concerned after a failed one. I am seeing a dermatologist who is treating my folliculitis with strong antibiotics. Do you think I will have growth after the folliculitis has been treated successfully?? Should I do another transplant with another physician??

    Miguel,

    At 12 months post-op with no hair growth, I would not expect any new developments after treating the folliculitis.

    Unfortunately, it can be difficult if not impossible to determine the exact cause of a failed hair transplant but folliculitis can certainly damage the follicular unit grafts.

    I highly recommend seeking a second or even third opinion before proceeding with another hair restoration. You may want to take a look at our listing of pre-screened, quality hair restoration physicians for clinics in your area. To learn about our criteria for recommending physicians, click here.

    Best of luck!
