I was wondering if you would do scar revision for my donor scar. I don’t think I had a very good doctor. What would the cost of a tricho closure be approximately? I have seen your photos and some look great, I can hardly tell there is a scar. Thanks!
We are constantly researching to come up with better methods to manage the donor area for improving the donor scars. Scar formation has to do with several factors — the surgical technique is only one of them. One important factor that patients tend to forget is their different healing potentials. Not everyone is a good healer and some patients develop widened scars regardless of the meticulous methods that are used. We usually do a scar revision for our patients with no cost to them. For those patients who are referred from other centers, we charge a minimum fee including a trichophytic closure, but we need to evaluate you with regard to the size of the scar, know how many surgeries you had, and determine the looseness of your scalp before we can tell you if we think that we can help you. You may call the office for a quote on our minimum fee — 800-NEW-HAIR. It is possible that this could be done over a telephone consultation.
