In this video we see a patient who has very noticeable scars along his hairline that are a result of a scalp flap procedure. A scalp flap procedure involves cutting a strip of scalp that is still growing hair, leaving one end still attached to the scalp, and twisting it so it covers a thinning area.
As seen in the “before” images, despite enduring such an invasive procedure the patient’s hair coverage was still thin and very uneven.
Dr. Wood’s procedure of transplanting follicles on an individual basis leaves no such scarring. As seen in the “after” images, the coverage on the top of the patient’s head is even, allowing the patient to comb it any way he likes. In addition the scars along the hairline are now hidden from view.
