    I'm not clear -- what was the intended purpose of your procedure?

    hi ejj

    thanks for posting, just so i can understand this correctly.

    the first three photos are pre-op, the others are immediate post op 1 week) and the last few are post op 11 months.

    so you had an attempt at a scar revision because your scars were wide pre op (back and right side), correct ?

    you had 600 beard plucked hairs (from your other post) inserted into the back-right side scar with zero growth ?

    where did the 2000 strip grafts come from ? the reason i ask is that this is not a small amount to take while at the same time also trying to reduce the size of the existing scar. this would have been a large opening to bridge.

    cheers

    3 strips removed to get the 2 k grafts , chrono of the pics is right , the plucked beard hair went into the right scar as picture 5 shows , no scar revision was undertaken at all . The before pictures show the problem scar back right hand side where the plucked hair was grafted in to , 13 months later i now have a larger scar pictured at the lower area above the neck and another scar left hand side above my ear , I believe acell creates tissue rather than scar tissue , however it is hairless therefore I think a standard closure is more beneficial

    regards

    thanks for clarification

    have you been back to see the doctor ? if so whats his thoughts ?

    this question might be hard to answer, but do you think the area of beard that was plucked grew back the same ?

    hope it all works out well for you in the end
