Post Surgery Scar Results

The procedure known as “double edged trichophytic closure” is an updated method for donor wound closure. Two sided trichotomy, or double edged, significantly decreases the post-surgical scar visibility on the scalp after a hair transplant surgery. This method works by enabling hair follicles to grow onto the scar.

Hair Restoration Surgery is rapidly evolving procedure and at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration, we are consistently improving our approach regularly to enhance the quality of transplanted hair results while also decreasing any possibility of problems.

This method of closure helps minimize the width of the top layer of skin (epithelium) that is removed from the edges of the donor wound. This method allows the hair to grow onto the wound on both edges and minimizes the contrast between the scar (which has no hair) and the surrounding scalp (which has full hair density). This method is also used for donor scar revisions in patients who have had wide donor scars from previous hair restoration surgeries.

By using the double edged trichophytic closure method we regularly see significantly less donor scars which are detectable, and are able to minimize the risk of folliculitis and ingrown hairs found in the donor area. These are two common complications of trichotomy found with the previous traditional methods.
