As a former patient of NHI, I remember that it was desired/required to keep the hair length longer in the donor area in order to “cover” the post surgury scar/shaved area. Do the new procedures (scar minization) used for the donor area make this no longer necessary?
Only about 5% of former patient developed noticeable scarring. Most of these scars are the result of the healing properties of the patient, although some are technique dependent. With new techniques recently developed over the past year or two, the risk of scarring in first time surgery patients has been reduced. We have notified all of our patients from over the years to contact us if they had scars that were noticeable or bothersome. New techniques can reduce these scars and there are a series of options now available to treat problematic scars. As you can see from my publishing your question in my blog, my goal has always been to focus my efforts on good patient follow-up and communication. I want 100% of my patients to be satisfied and I will work towards that end. Please contact me and make an appointment.
