Rejected Hair Implants? Here’s What to Do

Before and after picture of hair transplant

While failed hair transplants are mostly a relic of the past thanks to advanced technology like ARTAS, some people may still experience a rejected hair implant. However, there is good news! A skilled and qualified plastic surgeon can help you explore your options if you’re unhappy with a botched hair transplant. You have a number of options when it comes to corrective procedures, and we’ll be going over a few of them today.


A fairly self-explanatory procedure, micrografting and minigrafting is the process of placing smaller bunches of follicles into the desired area than in traditional grafting. Micrografts aren’t just transplant procedures by themselves—they can also be used to mask the scarring that can occur from a rejected hair implant.

PRP Hair Rejuvenation

PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma, and it can be used as a method of correcting a failed hair transplant by injecting the scalp with blood to stimulate follicle growth and letting your hair grow naturally over the affected area. Plastic surgeons have seen great results with PRP and believe it has an exciting future both on its own and as a supplemental procedure for hair transplants.

Scalp Surgery

Scalp surgery can be an in-depth and time-consuming process, and we only recommend it if your botched hair transplant has caused a significant level of disfiguration. This surgery includes the process of grafting a new layer of skin onto your scalp in order to cover up the affected area. While it is a solution that should only be considered under fairly extreme circumstances, scalp surgery can also be an effective method of correcting a badly botched hair transplant in the appropriate situations.

ARTAS Hair Transplant System

This is our personal favorite method of reclaiming the hair on your head due to the ease, comfort, and streamlined approach to the procedure. Failed hair implants have primarily become fears of the past thanks to the ARTAS technology automating many of the procedures involved in the surgery. If you’ve found yourself at your wit’s end thinking of ways to correct your rejected hair transplant, ARTAS may very well be the way to go.
