Donor Scar – FUT
This image shows a patient with little hair growth following chemotherapy and allows the scar from his FUT procedure many years previously to be seen.
As can be seen while the FUT procedure leaves a linear scar, in patients with good healing attributes, when an FUT procedure is carried out by a skilled surgeon the scar is still virtually undetectable and can easily be covered by a few centimetres of hair growth.
The image above shows a patient who had 2 FUT (strip) procedures a number of years previously with his head shaved for his FUE procedure. As can be seen the FUT scar is barely detectible and is easily covered by a scissors cut.
The image above shows the same patient less than 24 hours following his FUE procedure used to harvest the remaining hair from his donor area.
