There are good FUT scars and there are bad ones. Bad scars can be repaired only through FUE since usually the cause is a tight scalp resulting from too much skin having been excised; when the surgeon has not optimally assessed the tensile characteristics of the skin of the client. When scars occur, clients like this recent one get perturbed and opt for disguising the scar which is possible only through FUE. This present patient came for FUE for the hairline and opted for scar revision through FUE as well.

Follow up pictures shall be posted after 5 months of the procedure.

Scar revision is tough. In my mind, there are several options: one is FUE into the existing FUT scar, another is a second FUT excision with better closure, and a third is SMP into the scar tissue. Each has its potential downfalls, but all can likely improve the overall original post-operative scar.

Hi Dr.Bhatti

 

I understand this is a very old thread but wondering whether there is an update on the patient's scar...

Hope the grafts were helpful.  I just hate to see folks spending good money on repairing the results of FUT scars.  Hope it was successful.

I had FUE into my FUE scar.  This is the first time I have seen it in 3 years since my head was shaved for another FUE.   Not that impressed but it's no big deal because I cant have a short haircut anyways bc my donor is tapped out from FUE scars as you can see.  But the beard grafts to grow just maybe not enough in the sides.
