I had a hair transplant about fifteen years ago using the follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) technique. It left me with a wide scar. Last December I underwent a follicular unit extraction FUE procedure to increase the density and improve the hairline on top. I could not get my scar filled then using FUE as it would make sleeping a nightmare and I would have probably dislodged some grafts either in the scar or on top.
I would like to proceed before the summer to have my strip scar filled in using FUE. It’s three months since my last surgery. Do I have to wait a certain amount of time before harvesting grafts from my donor area again? Does the donor area need a set time to recover? Could I proceed with my scar repair in the next three months?
You could have more FUE harvesting done at this time.
If there are a few areas that your hair restoration physician did not harvest from during your last procedure, those would be the preferable areas to take from for this next procedure.
