Some patients visit the doctor to get a hair transplant on scar tissue. At times, it is seen that the person undergoes the treatment and it results in a large scar. These problems occur when the person chooses the surgeon who is not skilled or they do not have the experience to do the surgery with precision.
This creates a stressful situation for the person. Fortunately, the issue of scar tissue can be solved by undergoing FUE hair transplant treatment. Let’s understand this in detail.
About hair transplants on scar tissue
Hair does not grow in the scar tissue because there are not any hair follicles in the scar. Hair follicles are present beneath the skin that hold and help the hair to grow again. Blood vessels under follicles result in hair growth. If the scar forms then the follicles do not grow the way it needs to.
To transplant the hair follicles onto the scar area, the surgeon will take the grafts that have follicles into the scar. By doing so, it helps the hair to take the root, and they will grow easily. Also, it allows the hair root to have contact with blood vessels which means they get the nourishment for hair growth.
Hair follicles will start growing once the affected area is healed, and the follicles are grafted into the skin. They receive the blood flow which allows them to grow within the required time.
Following the surgery, you need to take proper care and make sure the results are according to the way you want. In some cases, there is a lack of blood flow to the specific area, and then another treatment session might be required.
FUE hair transplant
