What Is FUE Scar Repair?
What Is FUE Scar Repair?

Scarring of the scalp/head may arise for various reasons; injury, operation, FUT hair transplant, etc. City Clinics specialise in the concealment of scars using similar techniques to those involved in FUE hair transplants. Hair follicles predominant in regions of healthy hair growth of the head; are extracted and implanted into the required scar tissue. Please understand that the survival rate of the hair follicles varies between patients. Thus the results will also differ depending on the scars present.

Are FUE Hair Transplants Successful in Scar Tissue?

Our surgeons are very skilled in using FUE hair transplant techniques, enabling new hair growth over scar tissues on the scalp. Such scars may arise due to accidents, operations, FUT hair transplants or even birthmarks. Scar tissue has a reduced blood supply; if the quantity of blood is drastically less, the implanted hair follicles of this region may not function optimally. Nevertheless, these factors are all considered and discussed during the free consultation with our doctor before your operation; to assure that you completely understand the likelihood of success. This treatment can also be combined with advanced scalp micro-pigmentation to ensure the best possible results.

What Will Affect My Chances?
What Will Affect My Chances?

Generally, the hair transplant procedure is a success and works well for the majority of cases. However, some factors can alter the final result.
If the scarring is in-depth and very large (hypertrophic), then there is a reduced blood supply to the affected area. A lack of blood to the newly transplanted hair follicles is not ideal, as they will cease to function and eventually, not survive. Alternatively, if the scar tissue is too thin (atrophic) then; it may struggle to hold and support the newly implanted hair follicles.

We want our patients to have the best chance at success and, so we always recommend a test session, with a detailed consultation to examine the concerns. If you'd like to have a; consultation and test procedure, or discuss any queries, please contact us, we'll be happy to offer advice via the Whatsapp link on our website, to discuss your options online.

Can My Scar Be Removed?
Can My Scar Be Removed?

The process of an FUE hair transplant does not remove the scar itself - instead, the treatment will enable new hair growth around this region and ultimately conceal its presence. As most scars heal, they lack the potential to grow hair; hence use of FUE hair techniques act as a great solution.
