FUT Scar Correction
How Is FUT Scar Correction Performed?
FUT Scar Correction, also known as FUT Scar Repair or FUT Scar Revision, is a surgical process that is helpful in concealing the scars that occur after an FUT hair transplant in Turkey. In an FUT hair transplant, surgeons extract hair grafts from a thin skin strip from the sides or the back of the head. This tends to leave a linear scar, so the skin strip has to be thin enough to make the scar look almost unnoticeable. In the case of the extraction of a larger strip, a wider scar may remain and appear unsightly. Find out more about how FUT Scar Correction is carried out.
CONDUCTING FUT SCAR CORRECTION
With the help of the FUE technique, it is possible to transplant grafts directly onto the scar tissue. This prevents further scarring to the scalp of patients. Dermabrasion, laser scar removal methods and fillers can be useful prior to the transplantation as these will smoothen the scar tissue and ready it for the transplantation. The number of grafts to be transplanted will depend on the scar size. The survival rate of grafts on scar tissue is calculated at around 70%.
Scar excision is another technique which can help to improve the appearance of scars. In this method, the trichophytic closure technique is used for extracting the scar tissue and then stitching it back in place. This technique works best on people with elastic skin and can even be used alongside an FUE hair transplant.
EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PROCESS
FUT scar correction can completely conceal the transplantation of a sufficient number of grafts. When it comes to scar excision, the thinner scar is not apparent with longer hair.
The recovery time associated with the process is very short. The stitch takes two weeks to heal, as happens in scar excision. In the case of FUE, the transplanted area takes ten days to recover fully. When conducted in top hair restoration clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, it is possible to complete the entire process within a short time. The recovery time will also be shorter when skilled and qualified surgeons handle the procedure.
The scar is repaired in a fully natural way, and the technique is safe and effective for patients. The success of the process and the healing time can differ based on the type of clinic that one approaches. When properly performed, FUT scar correction can be very effective in remedying scars.
