What are the signs of a botched hair transplant?

As with any surgical procedure, a hair transplant comes with risks. Following hair transplantation surgery, it can take up to four months for the hair to begin to grow. It may then be a further six months before a patient can realistically assess the result of the procedure.

A failed hair transplant is a significant concern, highlighting the importance of understanding the potential complications and signs that something may have gone wrong. While some risks associated with the procedure are unavoidable, there are some issues that can arise due to negligence on the part of the surgeon. Common complications or signs of a bad hair transplant can include:

  • Inappropriate scarring around the donor area

  • Improperly implanted grafts

  • Inappropriate advice regarding the likely outcome

  • Poor hair growth, which may indicate inadequate surgeon training, improper techniques, or ineffective aftercare

How do I know if I am eligible to make a hair transplant failure negligence claim?

If the medical expert responsible for your hair transplantation surgery acted with negligence and their actions directly caused your hair transplant failure and subsequent suffering, you are be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

Your suffering may have been physical or psychological, and you may have needed to seek support or corrective surgery. Evidence of this will help you to make a successful claim as it will prove that the medical professional’s negligence caused you loss, financially or related to your health.

Hair transplant claims can be made for inappropriate or unexpected scarring around the affected area, improperly implanted hair follicles, and inappropriate or lacking advice around how to care for yourself following the procedure. Choosing a reputable hair transplant clinic is crucial to minimise the risk of negligence and the need for subsequent legal action.

FAQs about hair transplant compensation claims

What can I claim for with regards to hair transplant clinic negligence?

As mentioned above, you can claim for any expenses that you have incurred as a direct result of your surgeon’s medical negligence. This includes physical damages such as issues with hair grafts and transplanted hair follicles, which can result from negligence during a hair transplant procedure. To be eligible to claim you must be able to prove that the negligence happened and that it directly caused your damages. To do so, you will need to seek a medical diagnosis from an independent medical professional - they will be able to assess your injuries, including any complications with hair grafts or transplanted hair follicles, and inform you as to who and what was responsible for your suffering.

Additionally, a report from a mental health professional will serve as evidence as to how you have been affected mentally, and how this has impacted your life. You can also provide witness statements from those who live around you and have seen how your injuries have affected you.

What damages can a hair transplant gone wrong cause?

Bad hair transplant surgery can cause scarring, swelling and pain on the scalp if the procedure is not carried out properly. Additionally, the incisions made on the scalp can become infected if bacteria is allowed to enter them, such as through dirty water or touching with the hands. Infection can lead to disfigurement of the area, pain and worse scarring. Those who have suffered from an infection may need corrective surgery, which can be expensive. A severe complication that can damage skin tissue is scalp necrosis, the destruction and death of skin tissue on the scalp, leading to permanent damage, scarring, and preventing new hair follicles from being transplanted.

Physical damages are not the only issues that can be caused when a hair transplant goes wrong, however; the pain, bad surgery and appearance of the wounds can cause mental health damage, such as insecurity and social anxiety to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from suffering through the surgery gone wrong.

Additionally, the financial damages of a failed cosmetic surgery can be steep - a patient may have to pay for corrective surgery as well as any extra medical or mental health support they require as a result of the failed surgery.

We do not believe that you should have to pay out money for a surgery that failed due to factors out of your control, especially not on top of all the other damages that can come with failed surgery. That is why Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors works to claim back compensation for our clients.

How long will the claims process take?

All of our clients will receive a bespoke service that is tailored to their unique requirements, depending on the nature of their claim. Every case is different, which means each case varies in length and complexity.

From start to finish, you will be assigned a solicitor who will review every detail of your case and provide guidance as we progress. We are dedicated to ensuring that the claims process is as stress-free as possible for you.
