The possibility of getting a permanent scar after a hair transplant procedure can seem daunting. It can keep you from making the life-altering decision of opting for a hair transplant procedure and significantly improving your quality of life.
But there are several ways to avoid getting a hair transplant scar by keeping in mind the following:
1. Avoid FUT: Hair transplantation techniques have evolved over the years and there are many viable and safe hair transplant options available today. Gone are the days when you had to rely on Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), where surgeons removed a linear strip of hair from the donor area of the scalp. This strip was then divided into sections and implanted in the recipient area, causing a hair transplant scar. In other words, FUT can lead to permanent scarring.
On the other hand, Direct Hair Transplant (DHT) technique, pioneered by the founders of Eugenix Hair Sciences, is minimally invasive and does not lead to scarring. It also reduces the “out of the body” time of grafts and improves their survival rate. DHT uses the no root touch technology to improve the success rate of grafts implanted.
2. Aftercare is Critical: It’s important to look after the donor area as well as the recipient area once the hair transplant procedure is done. Remember to generously apply Betadine on the donor area to avoid infections which can cause a hair transplant scar. Speak to your surgeon about what aftercare entails and follow her advice diligently.
At Eugenix Hair Sciences, there is a dedicated aftercare team to advise the patient on what to do after the procedure is complete. The first seven days after a hair transplant are critical and that’s when the patient is advised to take care of the donor and recipient area. After seven days, the patient has the option to visit the Eugenix clinic for a head wash and ask questions/clear doubts in-person should they wish to do so.
3. Choose the Right Clinic: A hair transplant scar can result from an infection caused due to unhygienic conditions at the hair transplant clinic of your choice. Therefore, it’s important to choose a clinic that provides state-of-the-art hair restoration services with hygiene as their topmost priority.
