Reconstructive hair transplantation
The result of a hair transplantation is not always satisfactory. Sometimes a previous procedure has left visible scars or an unnatural hairline. Hair Science Clinic specializes in reconstructive hair surgery – correcting botched hair transplantations poorly executed by other clinics.

If you are not satisfied with the result of your previously performed hair transplant – or in case the surgery has completely failed – it is best to enrich yourself with the professional advice of a medical doctor.
An good example of a reconstructive surgery is the HST hair transplantation that Gerard Joling has had in one of our Hair Science Clinics.
Distinction in hair transplant techniques
There are various hair transplant techniques available for performing a hair transplantation. The best known are the Hair Stem Cell Transplantation (HST) method, the FUE- and FUT method. One of the major drawbacks of conventional hair transplantation techniques – such as FUE and FUT – is the cause of visible scar tissue in the donor area.
The options for a reconstructive hair transplant surgery depend on the influence of the damage and the size of the scar. Furtunately, the treated scarred area can be successfully repaired with the sophisticated, patented HST-method for hair transplantation.
The FUT hair transplantation technique has been around for more than 30 years. A strip of skin from the donor area on the scalp is cut and than reattached resulting in a large, clearly visible scar. A painful and not entirely risk-free procedure. Logically, no regrowth will take place in the donor area and will always leave you with a permanent scar.
Since the method is considered to be outdated few FUT hair transplantations are carried out nowadays. Reconstructive hair surgery with the sophisticated HST method can be used to successfully repair the bad results.
The visible scar as a result of a FUT hair transplantation
Because of the extensive scarring of the FUT method, a new technique was developed: called the Follicular Unit Extraction method. Often abbreviated as FUE or FUE CT technique.
Entire hair follicles
This technique uses a hollow needle to extract the entire hair follicles one by one from the donor area. Despite the fact that the surgery is done under local anesthetic, the procedure is not completely painless.

Due to the liquid that is injected into the scalp during the treatment, all kinds of discomfort can occur, such as throbbing headaches, fever and swelling. Especially in the first days after the treatment. The swelling will gradually subside and decrease after multiple days.
In case of FUE, the donor area can be damaged – no regrowth and scarring – that any follow-up hair transplants are no longer possible. Something which can be disastrous for young people.
An example of an unnatural hairline after FUE
Finally, we notice that many patients are left with an unnatural hairline after a FUE hair transplant. The hairline looks unnatural, doesn’t fit the person’s situation or isn’t implanted in the correct hair growth direction. Often, several reconstructive HST hair transplantations are required to achieve a good looking natural result.

Hair Stem Cell Transplantation (HST) is completely different. The harvested grafts are very small, ensuring dense hair implant and natural result that lasts a lifetime.
HST uses the power of nature by drawing on the capacity for regeneration of human stem cells. What is unique about this innovative technique is that only a small part of the hair follicle – instead of the entire follicle – is harvested from the donor area.
A natural look
This regenerative capacity can result in multiple hairs from one single graft (hair follicle). The new grafts are placed closely together, which creates high hair density and a beautiful, natural-looking hairline.
Hair growth in both area
A special, patented preservation solution stimulates growth and increases the viability of the grafts by giving them an extra boost. This integrated approach is the basis of our sophisticated hair transplantation method which promotes the growth of hair in the receptor area and donor area. HST hardly leaves bald spots or scars on the back of the head. This way, any follow-up transplants remain possible.
Our medical doctors and technicians use precision instruments, so little recovery time is required and the recipient and donor area heal quickly. Sometimes not all of the hair needs to be trimmed to perform an HST hair transplant. It’s an option to shave only a small area on the back of the head. Whether this is possible is determined by on the number of grafts to be extracted. After the treatment, the surrounding hair will cover the shaved area. This makes the treatment nearly invisible.
Safe & reliable
HST hair transplantation is a safe medical-cosmetic procedure that causes little to no discomfort. Our treatments barely leave any scars and the scalp generally recovers quickly. The treatment is performed under a local anaesthetic and you won’t feel a thing during the procedure. You can immediately go home afterwards, and even go back to work the day after.
