  Hair Transplant repair section  
 
Nearly half of all the hair transplant or hair restoration surgery performed at the New Hair Institute involves some type of corrective procedures to fix the hair transplants, scalp reductions and flaps performed by other physicians. Using Follicular Unit Transplantation, they have the ability to correct the old "Pluggy" or "Corn-Row" look that resulted from outdated or poorly planned hair transplant procedures. This can be accomplished by camouflaging the old work or, when necessary, actually removing the larger grafts and re-transplanting the hair in a more natural pattern. This is carried out with the aid of the stereo-microscope that gives them the ability to remove old plugs, separate them into individual follicular units, and re-implant them with minimal damage.

THE PROCEDURE
The areas where the hairs will be removed and then transplanted intoThe yellow region indicates the area of scalp that will be removed that contains the old style hair transplant plugs. The individual hairs will then be cut out of the skin and then transplanted into the green region.


Microscopic dissection also allows the retrieval of donor hair in, and around, the scar tissue produced by the old hair transplants, significantly increasing the amount of usable hair. This latter technique is extremely important since so many patients that have had older types of surgery are left with a severely depleted donor supply. Preserving every follicle is essential in order to make the most out of repair procedures.

Dean's procedure is actually being done in 2 separate procedures. The first procedure will excise or remove the previous pluggy grafts from the hair line and cut them into follicular units and re-implant them back into the scalp.

The second will be completed about 2 months later and will involve closing the donor area at the back of the head. At the same time additional hair will be taken from the donor area and will be transplanted in front of the fine scar where the old grafts were excised. This will bring the hair line forward as well as hide the area where the old plugs were removed.
