Default When do doctors give you two scars in FUT

On the right side of my scalp there is one FUT scar. Then on the left side, the scar splits into two separate ones. When do doctors choose to do this?

I have never heard of this technique in a single procedure. How many procedures have you had?

The only times I choose to create a second scar is when a patient comes to me for a second procedure who went to another physician who placed the donor scar too high, where I think there is danger of the fringe dropping and the transplanted hair later disappearing because it came from an area that would eventually bald.
