Prior to the Manual FUE technique, the FUT method (also called Strip Surgery) was the standard for hair restoration procedures. The downfall of the FUT approach was that it would leave an unsightly linear scar on the back of the scalp.
Here at Hair By Dr. Max, we strive to make sure all of our patients will be satisfied with their results. Thus, for our patients who had previously had a Strip Surgery done, if they so choose, we will use some of the grafts that we obtain to cover the previous FUT scar.
Moreover, we don’t just limit our scar repair services to past FUT-related procedures. We truly want our patients to feel the best they can. Thus, we also extend our treatment of Postsurgical Scalp Scar Deformity regardless of what was the cause of the scar. This can range from trauma, past facelift surgeries, etc. If you have any questions regarding your specific situation, feel free to contact us at 954-945-2909.
Though this route can present some challenges, as the scar tissue in the scar area may be less vascular than the surrounding tissue, we can offer services that will mitigate any trouble. With using treatments like PRP and our Hyperbaric Chamber, we can see improvement with graft survival.
Typically, Dr. Max will use a punch to create round incisions in the scar to help reduce any surface tension that may be exerted by the scar tissue on the graft. Dr. Max also suggests having a PRP procedure prior to performing a FUE Scar Repair. We have seen very promising, great results with this approach to repairing FUT strip scars.
How does it work?
WHY CHOOSE TO DO STRIP SCAR REPAIR PROCEDURE?
- As you age, your scalp will start to naturally sag. This can make the scalp reduction scar wider or more visible.
- Safe and effective way to restore the look of a full head of hair.
- Restored confidence and self-esteem.
