10-day post-op repair photos- IHTI


#1

This patient featured below wanted a natural looking hair line via FIT/CIT. His hairline was very pluggy looking and noticeably mis-angled by another clinic. For our surgical staff to provide corrective treatment on this patient, a plug redistribution was necessary. In this repair session, we removed large follicular units (2 – 5 hair), dissected them and placed them back onto the hair line for a more softer appearance. Often times patients want us to place these dissected units back onto their donor areas to disguise scarring.

This patient was told from his previous physician that he would have a nice full ending result on his hair line and a pencil thin scar. Being displeased with his hair line, he contacted us to arrange hair line repair. We redistributed approximately 170 plugs that yielded approx. 371 grafts for placement back onto his frontal scalp via FIT/CIT. You can now see a more natural result and healing just 10 days after treatment.

His new goal is for us to add temple peaks for a more appealing hairline then fill in his strip scar via FIT/CIT. He is very pleased with his current progress.

I agree, this patient didn’t need extensive repair but some needed surgery indeed. Before arriving to us he had maybe anywhere up to 1000 grafts placed on his frontal hair line hoping for fuller coverage. After his new hair line matured, he was certain that it was too linear and lacking a soft natural appearence. I am unaware as to which clinic he recieved his strip work but I have attached his scanned pre-op photos as he was then a virgin to HT. I am also attaching photos of his scar that he was actually told would be a pencil thin result from trico closure.

That is a vicious scar if I have ever seen one. The scar stretched akwardly, what causes that?

Definitely not pencil thin, this guy seems to have a very thick donor.

In this case, the patient’s skin characteristics seemed to have allowed this stretching. I suspect that his skin didn’t adjust well to the closing technique of his previous physician.
