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.

What our customers say

"Thank you Doctor Reddy and your fantastic team for restoring both my hairline and in-turn my self confidence. I am over the moon with the natural looking result and am so pleased that I had the procedure carried out by you. I considered beforehand, am I being shallow having a hair transplant at my age but seeing the result now, I am so pleased that I stuck to my guns and went through with it. I could have spent savings upgrading my car but would not have gained the same satisfaction as having a full head of hair once again. You`re are a cool guy Doctor Reddy, professional to the end yet easy to talk to, I can`t thank you enough."
