In older methods of hair grafting the doctor would cut a significant strip out of the patient’s scalp in order to obtain the donor follicles. This would leave a large scar circling around the back of the head from ear to ear. The scar could be big enough to be seen through short to medium-length haircuts.
The scar tissue can also leave a dead zone, a strip where no hair will grow in, leading to odd and uneven growth on the back of the head.
Dr. Woods has developed a method to aid in repairing the damage to the hair growth coverage on the back of the patient’s head. 1000 grafts of donor hair are taken from the patient’s beard and are used to fill in the dead strip of scar tissue, bringing back an even growth appearance to the rear of the patient’s head.
