Scar Repair and Donor Recharging

Patients experiencing a larger scarring after a regular hair transplant via strip surgery (FUT – Follicular Unit Transplant) often undergo great embarrassment as they are limited to carry their hair long and thus ask for a scar revision lately. Most often an existing linear scar is being removed by the use of a scalpel by simply creating another scar. As in many cases the new scar does not result in a smaller or thinner scar than before many patients are loosing confidence in this method. With FUE (Follicular Unit Transplant) and BHT (Body Hair Transplant) the appearance of existing scars has been minimized as it was possible to camouflage strip scars with single hair follicles from other parts of the human body.

Patients being overharvested or suffering from advanced degrees of hair loss often preveal a depleted donor area. As with scar repair those patients can eliminate their personal discomfort by using the CIT ® donor recharging method. Body hair grafts can artfully be placed in the donor area to visually appear more dense than before.
