What is Scar Revision?
How is scar revision done?
It is a corrective procedure while the patient is fully awake. Each scar brings a different type of corrective treatment to the table. For patients who have had the FUSS procedure, and are interested in concealing the look of the scar, they must first wait at least 6 to 12 months.
The 2 most common methods are:
- Follicular Unit Extraction aka FUE hair transplantation over the scar. FUE is the latest technology in the field of hair restoration, where hair follicles are removed individually without leaving an unsightly linear scar and transplanted into the scar.
- Scalp Micropigmentation aka SMP is a non-surgical alternative where hair simulation is created over the unsightly scar using special pigments, and recreating the look of hair strokes.
Many patients can benefit from either options or a combination of FUE and SMP incorporated into their procedure.
Who benefits from scar revision?
Anyone who has had a follicular unit strip surgery aka FUSS hair transplant procedure and is bothered by the unsightly linear scar, or is limited on how short they are able to style or cut their hair due to the visibility of the hypertrophic scar, is a great candidate to consider a scar revision. Other patients such as burn or accident victims can also benefit from the use of FUE scar revision, SMP concealment, or a combination of both.
Scar revision is also beneficial because the patient will feel better and more comfortable in their own skin without the reminder of the tumultuous accident or surgery.
