Having had multiple hair transplants, I feel my scars over time have become more noticeable and is something I need to address. Do any clinics offer scar revisions/trichophytic closure?
As to revisions, what is the overall success and satisfaction of those that go that route?
Hair transplant strip scar revision can be successful, but that success is individualized and also very dependent upon how many previous procedures have been performed. That option should be available in any state of the art surgical hair restoration practice, given an experienced surgeon.
As for the trichophytic closure, in my opinion, that closure was more of a trend to address poor technique which characterized well-intentioned but less than standard of care donor closures. Adherence to sound plastic surgery techniques when harvesting and especially closing the donor area virtually eliminates the need for any type of trichophytic manipulation.
What’s more, with short, straight hair, the trichophytic method can leave a tell-tale pattern in the hair as hairs along the incision are angled in an unnatural direction due to the mechanics and geometry of hair growth through the scar tissue.
I hope this is helpful.
