Hair transplants can be an incredible way to restore confidence and self-esteem, but sometimes they leave behind scars that don’t exactly justify the trade-off. An unsightly scar left behind by a hair transplant procedure can unfortunately work backwards against the positive effects produced by the hair transplant. Dr. Doshi offers hair transplant scar revision procedures in his Brooklyn and Long Island office, working with patients who have been left dissatisfied with their hair revision scars, helping them enjoy an improved appearance, and a boosted sense of self-esteem as a result.
Is Hair Transplant Scar Revision Right for Me?
Some doctors can inadvertently leave behind somewhat prominent scarring after they perform surgical procedures. Some patients, after their hair transplant procedures, are unhappy with a scar that they feel is too prominent, too wide, too large, and so forth. If you’ve had a hair transplant procedure and have found yourself troubled by any of the following issues, you might be a great candidate for a hair transplant scar revision procedure:
- Large or unsightly scar
- Too broad of a scar
- Raised or textured scar
- Dark or easily visible scarring
- Itchy, painful scarring
Dr. Doshi will work closely with you to determine the best approach to your scar revision procedure, so you can enjoy the appearance you’ve always wanted.
What’s the Recovery Process Like?
The recovery process for hair transplant scar revision typically depends on the size of the scar and the extent of the treatment area. Before your procedure, Dr. Doshi will work with you to help you understand every step of the process, including the aftercare and recovery portion.
Most patients have an initial recovery time of one to two weeks, with additional recovery taking place over the course of the next several weeks. Dr. Doshi and his team will provide you with all the medication you’ll need, in addition to detailed aftercare instructions to help you heal.
