Modern Corrective Revision Hair Transplant Surgery
There is no question about it. There have been real problems with old “pluggy” hair transplants from years past.
Everyone could see what hair transplant doctors left behind when taking the linear donor strip from the back of the head to harvest hair follicles to be transplanted to areas where thinning and balding had occurred.
The resulting stitches and scarring – sometimes severe – took on the less than favorable names of “Frankenstein stitches” or “railroad track marks” or worse. And the results have been plaguing hair transplant patients all their lives.
At the Steve Latham Hair Transplant Clinic in Huntsville, the so-called “strip method” of FUT hair transplantation (follicular unit transplantation) is still the best way to harvest as much hair as possible in order to minimize the number of transplant procedures a patient may need in order to achieve the maximum coverage desired during a single modern hair transplant procedure. But the resulting scar line needed to be minimized as much as possible to be as invisible as possible with today’s modern hair styles.
Men and women looking to restore their hair (and confidence in their appearance) should not have to worry about the appearance of the transplant donor area on the back of their head. With the skill and artistry of our team of hair surgeons, we have developed our exclusive MicroFUT™ closure procedure with outstanding results and patient satisfaction.
Along with developing our MicroFUT™ procedure for regular hair transplantation, we perfected the procedure for use during corrective revision hair transplant procedures to reduce and minimize old scar line and suture scars so long-term hair transplant patients coming to us from other clinics could have natural looking hairlines and their transplant donor areas looked natural again with minimum scarring and a “stealth” suture line that is virtually undetectable, even with short hair cuts. Our clinic has literally become the go-to hair transplant repair clinic across the entire Alabama region.
If you or someone you love has had a bad hair transplant resulting in significant scarring or an unnatural “pluggy” hairline, we encourage you to call us for a free, private consultation at (256) 382-2000 and discover the benefits of MicroFUT™ hair transplant technology.
