Can I Shrink My Hair Transplant Donor Scar?

I look at pictures of other patients that have a strip scar and my seems to stand out a lot more than the ones I see. Even if I shave my head on the longest of length it shows up. Is there anything I can do to make it smaller, like having it redone for a tri-stitch?

Without seeing you it is difficult for me to tell you what to do. There are scar revisions that can be performed with trichophytic closures that might help you. For more on that, see:

The problem is that in some people who stretch scars, the scar tends to return… so that is a risk in undergoing a scar revision surgery.

  1. I guess I got lucky. My greatest fear was having a strip scar in the donor area. I told the doctor that I’d rather all the transplanted hairs die than have a noticeable scar. He said that he’d see what he could do.

    He used trichopytic closure with beveling on the lower edge. You can’t even find the scar unless you are very close and looking specifically for it. I wear my hair short in the back, and my girlfriend has no clue I’ve had a procedure even though she massages my head on a regular basis.
