Dr. Lindsey Lecture on Hair placement into Scar Tissue McLean VA


Recommended Posts

Here is a 15 minute video, sorry for the not studio quality...discussing how hair transplantation into scar tissue is an option in select cases. Included are a few videos of our results.

 

And as always, I already know that I have a face for radio...

I don't know if there is any "typical" result when putting hair into scarred up scalp. These are however the most recent 14 people that we've done who have at least a year followup. I've had good and mediocre results in the past putting hair into scar filled scalp tissue, and I think the thing we do differently now is cutting the grafts a bit chunckier....and making the recipient slits larger, but still packing pretty tightly. I think this is very similar to planting hardier trees in Virginia clay. You simply have to leave a bunch of native dirt on the root balls with real trees, so I extrapolated to hair. Seems to be working.

 

Thanks
