Scar repair/ CIT /Dr. Cole

Icon Post Targetby forhair » Tue Jan 31, 2006 12:07 pm

Attached are the 12 month results along with pre-operative and post operative photos of a patient who came to Dr. Cole for scar repair. After just one CIT session of 150 grafts this patient is now able to wear his hair significantly shorter without the self conscious concern of his strip scar being apparent.

Scar Revision

Icon Post Targetby CITness » Tue Feb 07, 2006 9:09 am

This is definately a different patient and the procedure performed differs in total graft placement by hundreds. The time frame also suggests that these two cases were about a year apart. In my opinion, the later revision case has a more desireable result.

supergod,

I don't quite understand what you mean. This patient has already gone to Dr. Cole for another session of revision if memory serves.

His hair is cut very short, it will look better with a longer hair and in time. You can not control the direction of the grafts on the scar because it's a dead tissue...

That looks absoluty mint! The fact that the hairs are going in a different direction doesnt matter at all in my opinion. I have a scar about the same size as this patients and would like to have the same thing done.

Does anyone have any idea of what this would cost? I would also like some more putting into my temples at the same time, to make the whole thing more worth while.

Mega annoyed with my scar, the doctor who made it has been struck off now, it's roughly 4-5mm wide most of the way along it but it gets a bity bigger as it goes to my left side, then at the very end its about 9-10mm! but only at the very end, like 9-10mm high by 8 mm long.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

scar repair

Icon Post Targetby drcole » Sun Oct 01, 2006 8:22 pm

how long is your scar?

you can make some of your own measurements and do your own math.

to be safe, you should probably keep the density to 20 to 30 grafts per square centimeter in the scar. If you scar is 0.5 cm wide and 30 cm long, you have 15 square centimeters which would require about 300 to 450 grafts. your scar may not be that long.

it is not uncommon for the scar to be wider at the end. It is wider because the physician who did the strip tied the knot on the suture line. This is well recognized as a cause for a wider scar. To avoid this the surgeon should tie the knot above, below, or to the side of the suture line. this will eliminate the risk of a wider scar at the end. Yours is wider at the end simply due to poor technique.

Hi,

I would say my scar is roughly 10cm (11cm at the most) long, some of it is 5mm wide but some of it it wider in places, it doesnt seem raised at all and the colour looks very white, not pink.

Once I get my digital camera working properly I will get my wife to take pictures.

As it stands at the moment, I cant really cut my hair lower than 15-20mm at the back without the hair looking thinner in that area.

I'm in London by the way, how often do you come out this far to do consultations?

And also would it be better to intially reduce the scar before infilling with fit?

Thanks

hair loss scarring

Icon Post Targetby drcole » Wed Oct 04, 2006 8:55 am

if you graft the bald scar, you will make it turn pink for up to 6 months. your scar that is 10 cm by 0.5 cm is 5 square centimeters. this means you will need about 100 to 150 grafts in the scar at 20 to 30 per sq. cm. at 40 per sq. cm you would need 200 and at 50 per sq. cm 250.

higher densities carry risks of lower yeilds perhaps as low as 70%, but if it all grows, which it often does, the result can be marvelous.

hair transplant scar

Icon Post Targetby drcole » Wed Oct 04, 2006 12:55 pm

sometimes it is.

the down side to reducing first is that you are eventually going to need to graft it. if you reduce it, you should wait one year to graft it because scars will continue to widen for one year after your reduce them.
