Over the last couple of months we have had some patients seeking FUE for follow up treatment after strip surgery.
All of these patients have very thin hair and bellow average donor density. They all had previous FUT surgery and either had a bad experience or where told they had too much scalp tightness to continue with strip surgery.
The problem for these patients is double :
- Since large FUE sessions need a fully shaven donor area the scar, small or large will show for several weeks or even months.
- Since they are already very thin in the donor area it is not possible anymore to harvest large amounts of grafts using FUE since it will start exposing the FUT scar due to furhter thinning.
Basically these patients are now stuck in a very unwanted situation. They have need for further hairtransplantation but by doing so it will reveal signs of surgery.
