Default Dr. Lindsey complex scar revision with 3 layer closure, McLean VA

This fellow has had a few hair procedures elsewhere in our area. He presented seeking improvement in his right lateral scarline which was fairly wide. I expect to get a 50% improvement with today’s procedure and he may want to return at a year and have a few grafts FUE’d into the scar. Given his curly hair, and skin color, even a few of his hairs give pretty decent coverage.
We excised his old scar, and although he’d been doing scalp exercises, he was quite tight. Shown in the intraop pics is my assistant’s finger for size reference. Note how wide the wound retracts. Then note the improvement with a very deep layer closure. Next a subcutaneous closure takes the tension off of the skin edges, and the skin sutures simply align the skin level. Sutures are out at day 7 and he’s to followup in 30 days and use vitamin E twice a day, and to refrain from any activity which stretches my scar. While there is never a guarantee with these cases, I’m hopeful that after a year, we’ll show significant progress. We got about 40 grafts out of his scar and these were placed up front at no charge.

Here are 1 month scar check pics. Looks fantastic. While not a guarantee he won't have a noticable scar, if it looks this good today, its likely to turn out ok.

That is a fantastic result and to think the scar is only one month old.

Dr. Lindsey thank you for presenting these cases as they actually are intraoperatively. It is an excellent reminder that hair transplantation is indeed a true surgically procedure that should not be taken lightly and should not be intrusted to just anyone without serious credentials, experience, and proven consistent results.

What a terrible scar this poor bloke had, it looks as if this revision will make a huge difference for him. Excellent documentation.

Thanks for the comments, but its still early. He may yet widen out a bunch, but I think the chances of that happening are pretty small. Only time will tell and hopefully he'll be back in a few months for a check.
