Below are photos that depict the progress of a patient whose goal was to conceal a strip scar. This type of scar repair is frequently performed at our clinic. At our clinic, this common procedure is done via CIT, a minimally invasive surgery. It is very effective for adding density into strip (FUT) scars. This patient received 80 grafts into the strip scar and the follow-up results shown are at 8 months and 2 years post-op. Scars usually require more than one session, and oftentimes, growth in scars is unpredictable due to a decreased blood supply.
This is just another example of how patients can heal after a strip procedure. Some patients heal well and some heal poorly regardless of the surgeon. Now, this patient has more confidence in having a shorter hairstyle.
