This guy, and his brothers, all had multiple cases elsewhere. NONE form good scars. We've repaired all 3.

In this man, we did a frontal U case, which I've described in multiple other videos, to address his hairline and the area behind his tuft. The only trouble is that as that tuft goes....we may need to come back and put hair in it. AND I think he's lost a little of his tuft...and we may have to deal with that later on.

In any case, he looks great. He's very happy, and despite 3 other doctors putting scars on his donor region..in semi-non-parallel lines (who knows why?), and with me excising one of those scars at his case, he can still wear a normal haircut.

Some, including my nurse, would question why I show his donor region with scars...including 2 scars from other doctors which aren't good. The answer is 2 fold. First, MOST people, even with crappy scars, can look normal with a typical 2016 haircut length. And second, even though my scar is the best of his 3 scars..its still a poor scar and a poor scar from me. As I've discussed for years now, I get MOSTLY really good scars, but I get 4 of these each and every year. I tell every patient this, so here is an example. The informed potential patient makes the best decisions.
