What is the rate of success of a surgical hair transplant into scar tissue? What is a Renew clinic hair specialist’s opinion on performing a hair transplant into a scarred area?
Yes, the specialists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic confirm this aspect, saying that hair does grow in scar tissue but not as well as in normal tissue as the scar is not as elastic as the normal one. As a results, the harvested healthy hair grafts have a highly risk of being dislodged so you have to pay greater care in protecting the grafted area after the hair transplant procedure. Moreover, the scar tissue is also less vascularized than the normal tissue, hence the area should be transplanted more rarely and over multiple hair transplant sessions. And another aspects related to hair transplant into scar tissue is that, the grafts will not grow very well into thickened scars, but our hair specialists at the Renew Skin & Health Clinic branch in Manchester can fix the problem by injecting cortisone into the scars, thinning the tissue, and in this way improving the chances for the transplanted hair to grow better.†
