Strip Scars Dr. Edmond I. Griffin

Shown here are a number of scars that resulted from a strip harvest HT. These various patients are at least one year following HT surgery. The goal is to show actual scars from my patients with differing hair color, texture, skin type, ethnicity, etc. The type closure used varied as well, some were closed with a layered closure, using subcutaneous suture. Others were closed using only staples. I only use suture as a cutaneous closure in very specific circumstances. Some had Trichophytic closures, and some did not. Several had more than one procedure, and the pic shows the final scar. We review each patient's medical history prior to surgery. We then decide on the type of closure to use based on the patient's medical/surgical history. Some patients have a tendency to develop ingrown hairs or cysts, and may not respond well to a Trichophytic type closure. Some patients have an adverse response to certain types of subcutaneous suture. You can see a wide variety of scarring from strip surgery, some are more impressive then others. Regardless of the circumstances, medical history, or type of closure used, I hope you would agree, any one of these scars would be considered cosmetically acceptable by most reasonable people. We look forward to showing similar examples of the donor areas following FUE surgery on the FUE forum very soon.

There are so many factors that play a role in the overall scar width once all the healing is complete. It is very nice to see a variety of scars side by side in a diverse spread. Looks like a lot of those patients have reason to be happy, at least with the result of the scar.

 

Thanks for sharing.
