There are black market options for hair transplants all around the world from con surgeons to clinics which are not authorized to perform hair transplant surgeries. Luckily, these are rate, and the good surgeons, and licensed clinics outnumber the bad or fake ones.

In some other rare cases, a licensed surgeon may not be the suitable one to perform your hair transplant, and the operation may go wrong.

Here are the worst-case scenarios for “hair transplant goes wrong”, and hair transplant scars:

  1. The clinic is not licensed: The surgeon may be a real surgeon but if the equipment and the environment are not sanitized, it can be dangerous. And the results may not be as expected.
  2. The surgeon is not a real one: The worst-case scenario ever. The best thing to do is to sue them. And feel lucky that you are still alive.
  3. You are not suitable for a hair transplant: The surgeon is a good one, and the clinic is great, but your hair loss type and pattern are not suitable for undergoing hair transplant surgery. In that case, it is best to ask for other treatments: medical or cosmetic ones rather than persuade.
  4. The results did not turn out to be great: Here, either your expectations were not entirely realistic or the surgeon did not do a good job. They left you with visible, large scars, you had swelling, pain and inflammation, the angles were not correct, therefore, your transplanted hair resembles the grass doll or the Barbie doll hair, your hairline does not look natural. In all these cases, if you find your surgeon reliable, talk to them, or visit a renowned hair transplant surgeon for a hair transplant surgery revision. Some hair transplant scars, and incorrect results can be treated, and corrected.

Hope nobody has to deal with such situations – and yet, if you do, it is not your fault. Seek immediate medical and legal, and if necessary, psychological treatment. There are patients who have experienced these cases, and have had better hair transplant surgeries afterwards.

And remember, not all hair transplant operations go wrong.  Most of them are quite successful.
