Dr. Cole's patient originally had flap surgery with another doctor that was relatively successful. In other words, it wasn't the complete disaster we commonly see. It wasn't until a later strip surgery with another doctor that more serious troubles began. The strip incision above the ear led to a large area of necrosis or death of tissue. Dr. Cole successfully treated the area with 304 beard hair grafts. Dramatic improvement and our patient is here today to add more grafts to this area. So yes, hair does grow in scar tissue.
