Recommended Posts

heres the question i have for you all.....

i have a fairly large scar in the back i would like to get covered by SMP, preferrably permanent..

would this pose a problem if another strip procedure was performed down the road??? im wondering if the new scar would ruin the previous work, and to just wait for SMP until its all done ( or opt for FUE )

Trapps,

 

Normally, the original FUSS scar is extracted with the strip during the second procedure. While a new closure will hopefully heal with an acceptable scar, it is almost a guarantee that the original, SMP-treated scar will be be lost. I'm not certain if I would consider this a complication or problem, but it is worth considering.

 

Hope this helps!

I would imagine you would need more SMP after getting the new scar. You probably want to opt for FUE.
