The trichophytic donor closure technique is an advanced surgical technique that allows people to have a nearly undetectable linear donor scar after strip excision FUT hair transplant. Before trichophytic donor closures, or tricho closures, existed, patients were expected to have a donor scar that would range anywhere from zero to two millimeters in width. The tricho closure is an overlapping technique that allows hair to grow directly through the donor scar, resulting in the donor scar being nearly invisible.
Not all hair transplant surgeons use tricho closures; our doctor only performs them after every linear donor harvest. We know patients do not want a visible hair transplant scar, especially if their hair is short. The tricho closure technique is a great alternative to FUE or for clients who have short hair and wish to receive more hair during a single hair transplant session and at a more affordable cost.
