Several patients have come to us in the hopes of repairing and disguising previous scars in the scalp. The most common scarring that we see is in patients who have had previous FUT (strip method) procedures, where the patient has been left with a linear scar from ear to ear at the back of the head. Some FUT scars are not too bad, but we have seen some horrible scars that we needed to repair using FUE hair transplant technology.
We have also had a few patients who had large areas of scarring from childhood incidents. They had previously not known that those scars could be repaired using the SmartGraft or NeoGraft technology of FUE hair transplantation.
For most people, we can successfully “fix” those scars using the SmartGraft or NeoGraft technology and performing an FUE hair transplant on these areas. Deciding which method is the best for the FUE hair transplant is based on a few factors. Either NeoGraft or SmartGraft technologies can be used.
