Recommended hair transplant surgeon Dr. Parsa Mohebi of Los Angeles, CA is well-known for his excellent surgical technique and high standard of patient care. Dr. Mohebi performs both follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) and follicular unit excision (formerly known as follicular unit extraction) (FUE) as well as body hair transplantation (BHT), eyebrow restoration and scalp scar repair.

Recently, Dr. Mohebi shared the following video demonstration of a strip surgery scar repair via FUE on our hair restoration forum.

Patient Details
This patient came in wanting to address his hair loss in the scalp in addition to his fairly visible strip scar from previous FUSS procedures he had elsewhere. We placed 1,000 grafts in the crown area and roughly 500 into the scar, which was about 5-6mm in width and stretched from ear to ear. We were able to put approximately 40% density inside the scar, which will greatly diminish its visibility.
