These are some examples of donor scars at Arocha Hair Restoration from strip procedures. Dr. Arocha employs two layer closures on all cases to minimize tension. When appropriate he employs trichophytic closure technique to allow hair to grow through the scar, making an already hard to see scar, even less visible. Employing these refined techniques ensures the best possible scars for our patients.

 

Immediately after surgery, two layer closure.

Christine,

 

Thank you for posting such detailed scar photos. In my opinion, we can never see enough of these.
