I had many strip procedures in the early 1990’s that left my hair looking very â€œpluggyâ€. People would immediately look and my forehead at first meeting and continue to stare as though I was not even present. I wore a baseball cap everyday to cover up my hair everyday for 9 years (all the way through college, graduate, and PHD school). Luckily, I took a chance and made an appointment with you. You completely changed my life and helped rebuild my self-esteem.
After many corrective surgeries and reaching an amazing result due to you experience and craftsmanship, I have one last question regarding â€œreducing donor scar left from the strip harvesting.â€ Are there any other new options out there that could eliminate the donor scar through Trichophytic closures coupled with FUE, laser surgery, or tissue expansion that would allow me to shave my head if needed?
Thank you for the kind words and I’m glad I was able to help.
With respect to the donor scar, there are scar revision surgeries and even Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) to disguise the scar. I don’t know that you’ll be able to completely eliminate the scarring, but masking it or revising it would possibly be doable. With that said, everybody’s situation and needs are different, and I cannot give you a detailed personal consultation over the Internet without an examination.
Please call my office at (800) NEW-HAIR or (310) 553-9113 and we can set up an appointment to discuss your options.
