Dr. Sahar Nadimi explains how scars can prevent hair from growing on the scalp. She tells us how using hair grafts can not only repair the scars, but dramatically enhance the appearance of the patient. Hair transplant scar repair usually results in extreme patient satisfaction and an enhanced quality of life.
One of the most rewarding procedures that we perform are repair of scars using hair grafts. Some of the reasons why patients come in with scars are from poorly designed facelift incisions that cause a zone of hair loss by the temple and around the ear, patients that have been involved in car accidents with resulting scars that go through their scalp, or patients that have poorly designed donor site scars from a prior hair transplant. Placing grafts into these scars is a great way to correct these problems, and is very rewarding both for patient and for surgeon.
