I recently underwent a follicular unit transplantation procedure where my extracted donor strip was closed using staples. I’m curious, will the holes left by the staples create a “train track” scar around the natural strip scar?
Don’t worry, I’ve yet to see permanent “train track” scarring from staples. This is usually caused when sutures are pulled a bit too tight during a follicular unit transplant procedure closure. Over time, and I’m talking about serveral months, you may get the occasional “build up” in one of the staple hole areas, but this is normal. As a fellow hair loss sufferer, I had this after all three of my hair transplant procedures. It will rectify itself and just simply go away.
