ive had about 6 or 7 full strip procedures over the past seven years and have developed a scar that runs almost ear to ear and is an inch wide!
My surgeon has tried twice unsuccessfully to cut out the scar. There feels like very little excess tissue when i try and pinch. Im a dentist and am sure the tension from looking downwards post surgery was a factor although my surgeon says no. He is now talking about FUE from my chest. Would i be better suited seeing a plastic surgeon. He doesnt think anyone could achieve a better scar result. Ive had 2 colleagues get similar scars from the same doctor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
You must be careful here. Do you want to continue on a never ending process from surgery to surgery? There are creative options including:
- FUE — but not from the body, rather from the scalp where hair is active 85% of the time, rather than 20% of the time as with body hair
- Balloon expanders which can reduce scars very nicely if there is reasonable donor hair
Send me pictures (which I will keep confidential) and then I can offer you general advice about what is possible and what is not. You might consider coming to California after I get your photos for a one-on-one consultation if the photos lead me to believe that there may be a good solution for you.
