I had a previous “strip” hair restoration procedure, should I get an FUE procedure this time?
Answer:The main reason to get an FUE procedure is to avoid the scar in the donor area. Since you already have a scar, you would be a candidate for another strip procedure. The surgeon would excise the original scar, and you would heal with a scar of the same size as before. In some cases, the patient may opt for a strip and an FUE procedure to maximize the number of available grafts. Unless you are tress you are trying to maximize the donor area.
