16 months ago i had a hair transplant using the strip method which has left me a scar on the back of my head. if i was to have another transplant with the trichophytic closure procedure, would this problem of the scar not be so visible if i were to cut my hair shorter?
i would appreciate some advice just so i can be sorted out. kind regards
A second strip surgery in a person who had a sizable scar after the first surgery can produce an even larger scar the second time, but this is not always the case. There are times that a second surgery can reduce the scar from the first surgery. Considering the size of the scar, it might be excised and then closed with a trichophytic closure; however, the scar may return nevertheless.
One of the new and innovative ways to treat a hair transplant scar is with Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP). See examples here.
