Post Hair Transplant. Hair implanted into my temples seem to come out perpendicular to scalp and stick out
Doctor Answers 8
You can try gels etc. but the more permanent solution would be to talk to your doctor about getting it corrected through another transplant. Because that's a technical error they should be willing to get that fixed for you.
If the hairs are going in an odd direction it is likely a technical issue when the sites were made.

Transplanted hairs sticking out perpendicular to temples

Hair transplant in the temples is all about the angles. Like the brows, the angle of the site has to be as flat as possible. Why? Because transplanted hair tends to grow in at about a 15 degree UP angle! - UG!The other trick is to use sites that are "coronal" instead of "saggital" - like making a little flap instead of a slot. If you tuck the hair under the flap, then as it grows out it is less likely to lift.
In your case, try using gel or other hair products (like wax) to train the hair to grow flat as it is growing in. If they don't train to grow in flat (and some may not) you may have to either cut these hairs short so the lift is not as obvious, or pluck/electrolysis/laser them away. Most Importantly!! - Go back to your original surgeon and show them the results. Don't be litigious or anything - just show them how it came out so they can know. This is a classic beginner mistake and your doc might just need you to teach them so they can be better the next time!
