Post Hair Transplant. Hair implanted into my temples seem to come out perpendicular to scalp and stick out
Doctor Answers 7
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!
#hairtransplant angle and direction
Unfortunately, those grafts should have been placed at a much more acute angle. I would suggest you talk with you surgeon about removing and re-implanting them. That's the only permanent solution.
