Today I will discuss about Hair Transplant Donor Scar Revision. A patient who came to me with a wide donor scar and 2 separate donor scars from 2 previous hair transplant procedures all performed by another physician. In my practice I never create a second scar unless it is absolutely necessary. This is another reason why it is so important to me that I create the smallest donor scar possible, so that when the patient returns for the next procedure I can include the previous scar in the new donor strip and get an adequate amount of donor hair follicles as well as leaving the patient with only a single strip scar.
Unfortunately when this patient presented to me he had 2 separate scars and in some areas where there was only one scar it was much larger than it should be. What I did was consolidate the 2 scars into a single scar and took out the larger scar and made it much smaller. The photos below demonstrate the before and after of this patients donor scar.
My specialized technique of suturing the donor scar with a fine suture, as well as trichophytic closure, and fluid injected into the donor region, allow me to create the smallest possible donor scar in my hair transplant patients.
