Can I reverse my bad hair transplant?

I had a 1500 follicle FUE transplant about 8 years ago by a surgeon on Harley Street. I regret having it done now. I get the feeling that others can see the gap between the transplanted hair and behind it where my hair is thinning. Also the transplanted hair stands straight up which accentuates the difference between it and the rest of my hair. I don’t want to have another transplant as I feel that I will always be chasing the receding hair!

I went to see the surgery a couple of years ago about a reversal and they advised against it. However, I wondered if anyone had experience/knowledge of whether it was possible to have the transplanted hair removed?

I would want to see your hairline and get some good pictures of what you are looking like before rendering an opinion.  I have fixed well over 1000 hairline patients. I find that the best way to fix it is to create camouflage that will take advantage of the poor grafts and fill it in with follicular units around and in front of the existing grafts (see here: ).

For those who need more, I add Scalp Micropigmentation (see here:! here:  Also here is another fix:
