One common misconception about hair transplantation and scars is that follicles cannot be transplanted into scar tissue because they won’t survive. This is totally untrue. In fact, Ziering Medical specializes in transplanting microscopic follicular unithair follicles into scar tissue of the scalp and face. The reason that there is no longer hair growing where the scar has formed is because the scar tissue destroyed the existing hair follicles when it was forming. There is still a good blood supply in the scarred tissue that will support the transplantation of a follicle into the scar and it will grow.
We at Ziering Medical commonly do transplantation into scar tissue on the scalp from burns, traumatic scars, and cosmetic surgery scars from procedures such as brow lifts. We can also transplant into facial scars located in the eyebrows, mustache and bearded areas.
If you have a scarred area where hair no longer exists and you would like to know what your options for hair transplantation/restoration are, please call Ziering Medical today- we can help!
