Does every hair restoration physician who knows the trichophytic closure use this? If not, why?
There are several different ways to suture the donor wound in a hair transplantation procedure. Some doctors have tried the trichophytic closure and did not get as good of a result as they did with their previous technique. It is the kind of technique that, if not done properly, may lead to more problems later on. Others feel that if a patient is likely to need several procedures that the trichophytic closure should only used on the final surgery. There are some two layer closures being used in hair transplant surgery today that leave a donor scar that is very difficult to find.
