Previous Scarring

At the Seager Hair Transplant Centre, we have performed hair transplantation for many men who have had scarring from previous surgery, injuries, or chemical or thermal burns.

If the cause of the scarring is not known, other causes of scarring hair loss should be considered and hair transplantation may not be the best approach.

Hair can otherwise be transplanted into scar tissue and it will usually grow very well. It is important that the grafts not be placed too closely together in one session so as not to overwhelm the impaired circulation to the scarred area. As an analogy, if you put six men in a six seat lifeboat they will all survive but if you put 12 men in a six seat lifeboat the lifeboat may sink or tip and most or all could drown. While dense-packing follicular unit micrografts into non-scarred tissue is consistently successful in our hands, we do not dense-pack grafts into scar tissue.

Depending on the pattern of scarring, we can still often transplant enough hair in one session to break up the appearance of the scar to the point that most of our patients do not feel that they need a second session. Of course, for the rest, a second session in the same area will finish the hair transplant.
