Recently I have looked at the FUE/FIT method explanation on Dr. Cole’s web-site. The article at
forhair . com/fit_new3 . htm
compares scarring resulting from FUE method vs. strip harvesting. Given 10,030 potential grafts in the average patient, I assume theoretically, this article states “In our ongoing study to assess the width of donor scar we have found that the it is possible to decrease the width of our incisions to 0.57 mm. A 20% wound contraction would result in a total surface area of 0.16 square millimeters per incision. This effectively reduces the total potential scar to 16.3 square centimeters and reduces the scar to total available donor surface area to 0.075 (the equivalent ratio of linear scar to excised donor area from strip harvesting in the best case scenario).” So for a FUE of 3000 grafts that means scarring of 5.4 square centimeters.
What does this really mean? Articles that I have read mention no visible scarring. Under what conditions? FUE patient with re-grown hair in donor area? Is this relatively small scarring visible on FUE patient, if hypothetically he shaved his head after healing completed? ARE THERE ANY PICTURES OF FUE PATIENTS WITH SHAVED HEAD (Don’t ask me for what reason WHICH WERE TAKEN SOME TIME AFTER SURGERY?
