Ok guys this ones not to debate whether you should...
Guys I've had restoration work done in Thailand for a total in the vicinity of 9000 grafts. But recently in what I hope is my final HT, i had scalp micro-pigmentation into ear to eat scarring and by a separate clinic 250 FUE grafts.
Let's get some pictures up and see how the scarring fills in....
FUE/SMP into hair transplant scarring
2 weeks post op 250 FUE into scarring
Scars feel 'raised'
Just thought I'd make mention because I wasn't told to expect this. I've emailed the Dr a day ago, awaiting a response .
The SMP was performed in Sydney. Take some pain killers it hurts more cutting into scarring especially the boney bits above the ears. By in large it worked well but SMPs true worth/ effect & illusion is realised by wearing very short cropped hair. Dr Dr.Kongkiat Laorwong who,performed FUE was very easy going, certainly not pressuring me to take any action. He didn't even ask for a deposit to be put down the day before surgery. I thought that was pretty cool because most surgeons would have you putting money down prior, deposit. He did 2300 grafts (FUE) over one day full day 12 hours I was there in the chair. Thank god for Valium sometimes. I left the clinic with a small bag of goodies including prednisone for swelling, 2 more Valium, paracetamol, and an antibiotic for safe keeping. No post op pain, just the usual paranoia of worrying about banging your head and how to sleep without fear of bleeding and loss of grafts. Im writing this for anyone who's got bad strip scars like I did. There's stuff you can do. Ie. FUE/smp. Now I hope to be able to wear the hair short sometimes. 250 grafts is not a lot for large strip scarring but coupled with the SMP I anticipate a good result. Thanks for reading. I will keep you informed with pictures.
