Correction of a Pluggy aspect.

Recommended Posts

I realize that the number of corrections I am presenting on this site is important.

This is due to the high proportion of bad hair transplants still carried out in Europe.


Patients who find themselves in this unfortunate situation,

with a non Aesthetic result, look for someone who can achieve a quality surgery.

This is probably the reason why I am doing so many corrections.


This 35-year-old patient has already undergone two hair transplants in Belgium,

with the removal of two vertical strips...

Huge grafts were placed on the entries, with a pluggy result, definitely not looking natural.

I used the classical technique, as it gives the best results,

it consists in removing most of the plugs thanks to FUE punches

and then to place an important number of FU1 (singles) before the plugs.

The plugs are surrounded by many FU2 (two hair grafts) to avoid reinforcing the effect of the visual barrier.

The central part, between the temples, has also been reinforced

so that in the future the aspect remains satisfactory even if the hair loss will continue.


The donor area was not very rich, and a relatively moderate number of grafts and hair was reached.

1533 FU, 2910 Hairs, FU1 : 419, FU2 875, FU3 215, FU4 24.


Despite the limited number of grafts, the result is excellent

and the pluggy aspect is now almost undetectable.

Excellent result. I love the slight staggering in the hairline and FUE removal of some of the foremost 'plugs.' Total transformation. The surgery that caused this look and that scar was horrible! It's shocking to see some of the patients that need this type of fix. Great job Dr Devroye!
