View Full Version : Vertical strip scar?

Hello, boys and girls,

Now... Many of you have probably gone through some corner recession and beyond that. Well, experiencing this myself for the last two years, before turning 30, has made me consider surgical options.

I fear that an ear-to-ear strip scar would be visible, if I went on to keep the sides of my hair very short (at a #1 guard) as in my current hairstyle. A shorter strip scar than that, on the other hand, as well as a FUE, would both unacceptably reduce my donor density (which is truly quite extraordinary, even if I say so myself) to obtain grafts of a sufficient quantity. So I'd be most comfortable, if the strip surgery would leave me with a vertical/sagittal scar (with a few FUE grafts placed into the scar to make up for the lack of trichophytic closure), even if horizontal scars do have better yield ("the sweet spot") and healing (Langer's lines).

So a vertical scar, from vertex to neck it is. Evaluations of the conditions and consequences of such a procedure will be highly appreciated.
