    Default 75 CIT grafts into strip scar - 4 month results

    Below are before and after photo comparisons that depict a four month result of 75 CIT grafts into a linear scar produced by strip hair transplant method (FUT). The scar was approximately 13 centimeters in length and 4 millimeters in width. Prior to coming to our clinic, this patient went to a well-known clinic to add density to the front. The result of the strip did not meet the patientís expectations so additional grafting and scar grafting was the next goal.


    Many patients who proceed with strip are told that the linear scar will heal pencil thin or that the linear scar will not be visible unless they cut their hair extremely short in that area. The fact of the matter is that some patients heal well and some heal poorly regardless of the strip surgeonís skill. Some patients are also told that scar revisions are the best way to resolve the appearance of strip scars. Scar revisions can be helpful in some applications, but can also cause conditions to worsen by creating more stress on the scalp that can result in an even wider scar in the end. Strip scars are unpredictable due to a lack of blood supply. We prefer to graft strip scars and treat them over more than one session. This small procedure is very effective in eliminating strip scars. Scar repair is a very common procedure at our clinic. In this case, Dr. Cole transplanted a small number of grafts into the scar for a significant change. At 4 months post-op, the newly transplanted follicles are just beginning to return into the active growing (anagen) phase. We can definitely expect much more growth in the next couple of months.

    Wow! That's an impressive improvement for so few grafts.

    Looks great to me for only 75 grafts. Were there many 3 and 4 hair grafts since there was so much coverage of the old scar?

    In this case, the strip scar was filled with mostly 2-hair and 3-hair grafts for coverage. Sometimes it can also depend on the individual patient's donor density.

    This is a very positive case because it shows what 75 grafts can do in a strip scar. In this case, we transplanted a small number of grafts and they grew in a small period of time. Not all patients are going to have a 100% yield, but most scars will definitely show a more positive change in apprearance.
