This fellow had a strip procedure to address his frontal hairline. More interestingly he had had a sagital incision in his scalp as a child. He was concerned about the scar, so we put a few hundred doubles in the scar at the time of his frontal procedure. Shown are intraop pictures, one year showing a nice improvement and pictures from around 20 months showing excellent camouflage of the scar. As is typical, the hair placed into the scar took longer to grow than the hair placed into “virgin scalp”. Also fairly typical…as the front grew in he kind of forgot about his scar and only when I specifically asked about it so that I could get pictures did he say “Oh yeah, I haven’t thought about that in a while”.
So here are pictures from last week. I expect him to stop by next summer as well. He looks good and when we attempt to move all of his native hair away from his old sagital scar, the grafted repair work looks great.
