While Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) has provided thousands of patients with a long-lasting solution for hair loss, due to the nature of the procedure, this traditional method results in a scar. Due to the sensitive nature of hair loss and hair transplants, many patients may feel self-conscious about the long, thin scar left by FUT procedures. While this can often be disguised by growing out the hair, hair transplant scar removal in Turkey can offer peace of mind and reassurance for each patient.
An FUT hair transplant sees the removal of a strip of skin from an area of healthy hair growth in order to harvest the follicles. This is usually at the back or sides of the head. The strip is then separated into individual grafts, which are implanted into the scalp using small incisions at the recipient site. It’s the initial extraction of a strip of skin that results in the scar and while our surgeons take every care to ensure this scar is nearly sutured to reduce scarring, FUT patients will see a thin scar across the donor site as it heals, where no hair will grow.
With hair transplant scar removal, however, this can be hidden through the use of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). While there are other methods available for hair transplant scar removal Turkey, our surgeons are able to conduct this additional transplant after the scar has healed in order to reduce its visibility and improve the density in the donor area.
When it comes to hair transplant scar removal Turkey, our approach centres entirely around FUE. However, for patients who may be ineligible for this treatment due to insufficient donor hairs, lack of blood flow to the scar tissue or another reason entirely, noting the alternatives may be beneficial.
One such alternative is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). This technique featured the application of small ‘spots’ of pigment on your scalp to match the colour, density and nature of your existing follicles. This works in a similar way to a tattoo, helping to create the illusion of a shaved head or improved density for those with diffused hair loss. While this will not provide the area with hair, it can give a visual illusion that helps to reduce the overall appearance of a scar.
In a similar manner, it can work alongside the traditional FUE hair transplant scar removal by providing the aforementioned appearance of density where there may be a limited number of transplanted follicles. While you may also undergo excision of the scar in order to reduce its appearance, FUE is often seen as the most effective method for those looking to hide the scar and restore confidence in their hair and appearance.
