Novel Innovation in Hair Restoration for Greater Results
Dr. Mohebi, founder of US Hair Restoration, introduces enhanced method of closure to reduce the appearance of scalp scars post hair transplant.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Dr. Mohebi has introduced Partial Trichophytic Closure, an advanced method of closure during strip removal in FUT hair transplants. This method reduces the appearance of the scar area by not only allowing grafts of hair to grow into the scar, but also by eliminating the effect of hair transection. Dr. Mohebi presented this idea to fellow prestigious hair transplant surgeons during the 21 st Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in San Francisco, where it gained recognition for its significance. Dr. Mohebi has since pioneered this method and now introduces this novel technique to the hair restoration community.
The traditional form of strip closure known as trichophytic closure has long been used in different forms for hair transplant patients. When a hair transplant surgeon performs the traditional trichophytic closure, which involves removing about 1 mm of the wound edge from upper, lower, or both sides of the skin, he is allowing the hair to grow into the scar. With partial trichophytic closure, only areas with distal end damaged follicles are removed in order to decrease the rate of hairless areas revealing next to the wound after scar formation.
A microscopic evaluation of skin edges in partial trichophytic closure is very crucial in planning the technique to maximum hair growth within the scar. Dr. Mohebi introduced this method into his surgical room after observing the width of post-operative scarring and explains what led him to utilize this method, “In hair transplant procedures, during wound closures, I use magnifying glasses to precisely observe the edges of the skin. During my initial observations of the scar, I noticed that some of the hair follicles are being harvested in a way which may increase the visibility of the scar. My observation led me to advance trichophytic closure with the development of partial trichophytic closure. This method modifies the traditional method of hair transplant, in order to minimize the appearance of the scar further.”
Dr. Mohebi discusses how partial trichophytic closure has improved the strip method, “Hair transplant scarring is a ramification of the strip hair transplant method, however; partial trichophytic closure decreases the appearance of the scar left after a hair transplant. By decreasing the appearance of the scar, this standard strip method becomes more appealing to potential patients and can decrease the detectability of the scar in many cases.” The advancement of partial trichophytic closure has led to enhanced results of the appearance of the scar for hair restoration patients and increases the popularity of strip hair transplant.
