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

"A very big thank you. I am finding it hard to believe the hairline I have this morning! You and your team did a fabulous job, and a man of my age really shouldn’t be so excited.... It was also illuminating to see how well your teamed worked together, they certainly appear to be a happy, cohesive and very professional, they all treated one another with such respect. Equally importantly, they made me feel that my needs were paramount. Well done on creating that spirit. I very much look forward to seeing you again soon. By the way, it was an unexpected pleasure to see and speak with Kriste again. Please give her my best wishes. Thank you again"

Just thought I would give a breif summary of my recent FUE with Dr Raghu Reddy and his excellent team at the Private Clinic, London. Over the course of two days I had ~2000 grafts implanted by Dr Reddy's 3G FUE technique. I chose Dr Reddy based on his comparative amazing yields and results with relatively few grafts compared to the commonly discussed other 'top FUE surgeons". First off his team are all pro's and have been working together for years to refine this minimally invasive FUE technique. They were personably, relaxed, funny, and above all caring, profession, and meticulous. I always read that people get experience pain, discomfort, and swelling during and post op. I have to say that with Dr Reddy's technique I have experienced zero pain or swelling both during and post op. The operation finished yesterday and I feel absolutely normal. Not a spot of swelling or even a head ache. It's obvious after doing research on the FUE procedures conducted by the regarded 'best FUE doctors', that Dr Reddy's 3G FUE stands out as being both innovative and geared towards optimal results. He uses specialized techniques to create an extremely non invasive yet high yielding technique, which I am sure he would be more than willing to discuss with anyone interested. In regards to my case, I apparently had really strong, healthy, and "big" grafts (so lots with 3 and 4 hairs). We chose a hairline hat reflects my age (31) and the fact that I have never had sharp temple points. Plus I was strongly advised against having points worked on as many cases are seen where transplanting to this region looks very odd in years to come where further recession occurs. Plus I have a big head so had lots of baldy to cover I am very happy with my results thus far and I am predicted to have a great result due to graft condition and density. One thing worth mentioning is that is became obvious that Dr Reddy's skills are not only recognized by international patients (there was talk of people coming in from all over the world during my visit), but also he is held in high esteem by the other 'best' FUE surgeons discussed on this site, and from what I gathered some of these surgeons .
