What is Trichophytic Closure After an FUT Hair Transplant Procedure?June 14th, 2006
Q: I have read that some doctors perform something called a trichophytic closure. What is this?
A: A trichophytic closure is a way to minimize the appearance of the donor scar in a hair transplant using a strip incision.
The technique entails cutting the off the top of one of the wound edges and suturing it so that the hair from that edge grows through the scar. Either wound edge can be trimmed in the technique, but removing part of the upper edge is most common.Related Posts:
