Dr Rogers you got anymore repair cases that I could see here, especially scar repair.

On average how many grafts needed to repair a scar?



Andy it all depends on how long and wide is the scar, I would say on average 200 - 500 grafts

Dr Rogers, from reading this post about hair textured. My question is would the surgeon decide on what density to give a patient after looking at his hair textured hair?

It tends to be a bit of a guesstimate as it isn't an exact science. I know some colleagues have FUs per cm in mind but the reality is that the higher the density, the better. The limiting factor is the donor area, not our ability to place the grafts.
But those patients with thick calibre hair, a bit wavy or curly or have a high percentage of 2,3,4 follicular unit grafts, will always tend to have more dramatic improvements.
If you have fine hair, then the result will also be fine, tending towards the thin.

Thanks Dr Roger for the reply. It all makes sense.

If you dont mind ive got another question to ask, when removing grafts from a repair work on the hairline, will there be a scar left behind in the future?

There would be a small scar, just as in Fue, since we use the same punches. However the little white dots are usually even less visible on the front, perhaps because the contrast is less
