Hair Transplant on Scar

What is Hair Transplant on Scar?

The solution for hair not growing in scarred areas. First, it is important to understand that not everyone can undergo Hair Transplant on Scar, this is because the skin in scarred areas often has significant limitations. Due to the fact that the skin in scarred areas has reduced blood circulation, and the tissue in the scarred area is relatively tough and less elastic compared to other areas. Therefore, hair transplantation on scar areas requires the expertise of a hair transplant specialist to diagnose and achieve the best possible results.

The areas where hair can be transplanted to address scar issues

  • The scar on the scalp area

  • The scar on the eyebrow area

  • The scar on the beard area

The types of scars suitable for hair transplant

  • The scars are from cosmetic surgeries such as forehead augmentation or facelifts
  • The scars are from surgical procedures, such as brain surgery
  • The scars are from accidents
  • The scars are from thermal injuries, such as burns or scalds

The limitations of Hair Transplant on Scar

  • Individuals who have metal implants under the scar or wear a prosthetic skull must reconsider whether hair transplantation over the scar is feasible.
  • Wounds from accidents or surgeries require a waiting period of approximately 12 months for scar maturation to prevent scar changes. Hair transplant on scar should be considered only after the scar has fully healed.
  • For individuals with conditions such as Lichen Planopilaris (LPP) and Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA), it is necessary to wait for the disease to subside and observe for at least 2 years before considering permanent hair transplant. This is to prevent disease recurrence and the need for further hair transplant.
  • The scar tissue on the skin has been extensively damaged, to the point where there are no blood vessels to support the regrowth of skin in that area. Alternatively, if the scar tissue is too thick, the physician will assess whether hair transplantation is feasible or if there is a high possibility that the transplanted hair will grow minimally, they may not recommend the procedure

Recommendations

Dr. Gorn Hair Clinic places places utmost importance on enhancing the graft survival rate with additional programs includes

  1. Preparing the wound before hair transplant on the scar
  2. When extracting hair follicles, a globally standardized cell nourishment solution is utilized
  3. Autologous Hair Cell Growth Factor is used to inject and nourish the scalp after hair transplantation over scar tissue
  4. Light therapy to stimulate hair follicle activity


All these techniques combined will maximize the chances of graft survival.
