Default Video. Dr. Lindsey discusses multiple donor scars

We had a guy come in that prompted Wendy and me to make this short video explaining the trouble with multiple scars. Just food for thought and encouraged viewing for anyone getting a first, or later strip case.



Enjoy.

Back in the old days of hair transplants multiple scars was the only way it was done. Sessions were small, so it would take several sessions to get any kind of decent coverage. They would give you a 3 or 4 session plan and each session was spaced 6 weeks apart. At 6 weeks after the first session, there was still shock loss and healing going on from the first scar, so a 2nd scar had to be made. Then the 3rd one 6 weeks later. This was standard practice.

Oh and don't forget that they would even do a scalp reduction on the same day they would do a strip scar surgery. So they are pulling your skin in one direction for the scalp reduction and then pulling it back the other direction from the strip scar. This made the scalp reduction useless and made sure you would get a wide scar.

I am old enough to have seen that technique when I was on the interview trail for facial plastic fellowships.
