This is the older brother of the other recent post of a repair of a z-plasty scar using FUE. Pictures are shown at the day of surgery, and 4 days out, roughly a month, 4 months, and 12 months. Given how tough the scar was in 2 areas, I suspect he’ll grow even a bit more by his final check this Christmas.

As per the other write up…FUE into a scar is tricky, but both of these guys had nice beefy hair roots and a reasonable blood supply in the recipient scar. Time will tell.
I’ve asked his mom to chime in with her thoughts on the forum as well. Hopefully we’ll see a post from her when they return from vacation.

Glad we did it. Dr Lindsay was pretty blunt but he has very nice staff. He went over all of our options including just camouflaging the scar. Recovery was quick, and the hair is growing in!He under promised and over delivered.
