I Had My Old Punch Grafts Removed and Re-implanted, But Now I’m Low on Donor Hair
I had my first hair transplant in the mid 1980’s with punch grafts and over the years i have had micro grafts and more recently single grafts taken from strips. the old punch grafts were removed and then re-implanted via single grafts. My hairline looks pretty good but i am now losing a lot of hair on my crown but have very little donor hair left do i have any options?
Donor hair is finite and many people in your situation have depleted donor supplies with significant donor area scarring. More surgeries will often make the scarring worse. I see people like you all of the time and lately I have been seeing more of them. Everyone is different and an individual assessment based upon remaining donor supply, donor area scarring, the existence of old “plug grafts”, hair color (graying is good), and hair characteristics all must be considered in the equation on what to do.
I could write a book on this, but this is not the place. I would suggest that you find a hair transplant surgeon with a lot of experience in repairs.
Why is graying good with respect to hair transplants?
