A Surviving FUE Myth (Hair Transplant)

Years ago I read a post in a hair transplant forum where a hair restoration doctor claimed that FUE causes a network of scar tissue formation kind of like Kudzu vine infiltration. Those of you living in the South will know what I mean. The myth claims that large areas of junk scar tissue forms in the FUE donor area. I thought that myth had died until yesterday we had a patient who was told that during a recent hair restoration consultation. To avoid massive networks of scars, the prospective patient was advised to have a strip surgery. I have never seen this and I asked Dr. Cole about this today. He said in his over 5,000 cases of FUE, he has never seen this happen either.

With strip or FUE, the donor areas are not perfect. Strip scars always show on a shaved head and on a shaved head, FUE extractions can appear as empty spaces and sometimes small hypopigmented dots. The good news is, advances in healing and regenerative technology are reducing scar tissue formation and ACell is regenerating hair follicles, eliminating some of the spaces where the hair was extracted.
