Trichophytic Closure

Trichophytic Closure also known as “The Invisible Scar”

Our donor site closures are done with a technique which was developed by a number of surgeons including Dr. Straub. In most patients the scar cannot be located by anyone who is not a hair transplant surgeon or a hair transplant technician.

The lower edge of the incision is removed in such a manner that the hair grows through the incision. Dr. Straub has developed a pair of scissors to facilitate this and he has taught this technique to other doctors in live surgical demonstrations around the world, most recently in Paris and Lisbon. In addition he has presented this new technique at Montreal, Orlando, Las Vegas, and San Diego surgeons’ meetings.
