Why is it always recommended to do those exercises for improving the laxity of the scalp before the surgery?
What does the laxity provide?

Adequate scalp laxity is critical for FUHT procedures because there is a strip of scalp excised that provide the grafts for the procedure.

If the scalp is too tight or there is not enough accommodating laxity for the size of the strip removed, the risk is a potentially wide or stretched scar which nobody wants.
