The Truth About Hair Transplant Scars: What Every Patient Should Know
Dr. Bernardino Arocha of Arocha Hair Restoration ([url]) offers a factual assessment of the scars experienced by hair transplant patients. In strip extraction, a portion of the back of the scalp is removed to harvest hair follicles used in transplant. The wound is then closed using techniques designed to minimize scarring. In follicular unit extraction, a punch is used to extract tiny portions of scalp and the scalp is left to repair itself, leaving thousands of tiny little scars. To determine which approach is better for you, get the facts and ask questions, but don't believe the hype that any method is "scarless."
