Maybe a slightly unique question here… I have about an inch forehead scar in the hairline(above right temple side of head) I received from injury back in April, and had it revised with a scar revision procedure in June. Results are good (about 2 months into the healing/remodeling phase), but I’m facing facts here: I want the hair back where the incision-line scar is, no matter how less/ or barely visible the scar is overall…
My question would be at the 3 month mark here in September (if 3 months matters, as that is when I have my follow-up with the plastic surgeon who performed the revision at that time as well), would I be able go forward with the minor transplant without jeopardizing the healing scar? It’s primary (main) healing phase is already complete, right? So, would I be safe in getting the procedure done? Or could I jeopardize the scar or general healing phase of the area at all? Thanks so much for your help; I read your blogs frequently.
I would have no hesitation to transplant the area after 3 months have passed, but might be concerned at less than that time period. The basic scar healing should be complete by then. For those curious about the various phases of wound healing, check out this article.
