    Fantastic FUT Strip Scar after 2700 Grafts.
    Patients currently have a choice between either FUT or FUE for their hair transplant surgery. Both are excellent techniques and at SMG we currently do about ½ FUE and ½ FUT.

    By far, main reason most patient chose FUE is their fear of the linear scar associated with FUT.

    While it is true that there is a risk of a linear scar that could be clinically significant….. most of the time the scar is very difficult to find at hair lengths greater than 1 cm. It is important for patients to have a true perspective or the relative risks of both procedures with respect to donor scarring, recipient growth, etc.….in order to make informed decisions.

    Below is an example of a FUT strip scar that healed very well, making it hard to find. At Shapiro Medical the majority of our donor closures heal similar to this result.

    Awesome scar Janna. Having lived with bad scarring for many years before i found SMG i personally can't emphasize just how important it is to go to someone who is great with donor closures like SMG are.

    Superb work as always SMG!
