No Linear Scarring

By Dr Raghu Reddy

Traditionally FUE has been associated with dot like scarring. There are a few factors that contribute to scarring in FUE:

  • Size of a punch – Rule of the thumb is, bigger the punch the more chances of visible scarring.
  • The depth of the punch – The deeper the punch the chances of scarring increases exponentially.
  • Surface area used for extraction – It is important that the surgeon uses all of the permanent zone for extraction and makes sure that the punches are not placed too close to each other. If this happens there is a chance of necrosis of neighbouring follicular units which in turn leads to wastage of the donor area and that makes the scarring visible, hence defeating the purpose of a scar-free transplant. With the evolution of 3G Follicular Unit Extraction, transplants with no linear scarring have become a reality.

"Thank you for all your help and expertise. I am back in Durban South Africa. I had a good flight with a few close calls with the elderly doing their best to displace my grafts with their hand luggage. Been resting at home today. Still continuing with the saline spray every 30 minutes. I’ve now completed the 5 days of antibiotics and medrone with no sign of any infection and no sign of swelling or bruising. I’ve washed the donor area today with baby shampoo and there was no pain. Tomorrow is day
