FUT Scar - Before
After Grafting into Scar

Indications

•   Scar left by previous FUT hair transplant procedure
•   Any scalp surgery, including facelife

Our Technique

•   We use FUE to extract graft from the donor area
•   2-hair and 3-hair follicular units are used for better result
•   The number of grafts transplanted is limited due to the compromise of circulation in scar

Postop Care

•   The use of silicone and Vitamin C gel is recommended for the first few months

Number of Session

•   It may take more than one session to achieve the required result as not 100% of graft transplanted will grow。

Adjuvant Therapy

•   Topical Minoxidil and silicone gel can be applied after the procedure。
•   It can be combined with SMP to give a more 3-D appearance。
