Yes, it's good you have so many top notch surgeons to now choose from. I do agree that Dr. Bernstein does outstanding repair work.


I suggest you read our "repair section" to learn more about various techniques for repairing or completing the older work.


Best wishes for getting a full and natural look.

If there are too many minis, and they are properly angled, you may do well to get fu grafts filled all round them.

No point trying to increase the surgical trauma.


If the minis are improperly directed, best to have them excised. They can be used, after dissection, as individual follicular units.

Can u post a picture to show what they look like?

7500 grafts till now. All by Dr. Arvind/Dr.A, New Delhi.

They include strip FUHT, FUE and body hair grafts.

Hoping to accomplish full hair restoration.

There are a few ways to address your issue. I too had bad mini-grafts about thirteen years ago and they were mis-directed as well. They basically pointed straight up. I simply had FU's placed inbetween and around them for camouflage and it worked extremely well. The thing for me was that the grafts were not too low on my hairline.


If your grafts are too low on your hairline then you may also want to consider a brow lift. I've see it done and it works like a charm. Basically, your hairline is given a second chance to be virgin territory for grafting and the old grafts that are harvested are divided using microscopes and redistributed.
