For the best result and yield, Dr. Cole recommends grafting scars in two sessions.
This patient is a class V, possible VI. Several years ago, he underwent a strip procedure. He now wants to wear his hair short, but does not want to expose the linear strip scar. He came to us in April of 2009 to have CIT grafting into his strip scar and to improve the density his frontal area.
In addition to grafting 401 FUs into the strip scar, the patient also received PRP and ACELL treatment in the recipient areas and donor extraction sites on his scalp. These pictures show the patientís results approximately 24 months after his procedure. The first photo shows the strip scar before the CIT procedure. The second photo show impressive growth with the scalp hair transplanted into his scar area. The scar result is a more normal color, matching the surrounding tissues. The smooth, shiny texture is broken up by the grafts to improve the appearance and help the scar blend in with the surrounding areas. And of course, the additional hairs add coverage.
