My Scalp Micropigmentation SMP Thickening Procedure and Donor Scars

Posted by on Nov 15, 2013 in Hair Transplant Blog UK, My Hair Transplant Updates | 0 comments

It was decided that we should perform SMP to my mid scalp and crown and donor scars. I have a large area to cover so it would not be high density. Irina got started at 10am and finished at 4pm so 6 hours pretty much straight with a couple of stops of drinks and toilet and to grab a bit to eat. A big area was covered from directly where the latest grafts were placed so around mid-scalp right through to my crown and lower part of. The pain was moderate in most places like a pinching it did however get a little more painful at the sides. I wasn’t able to see the final result but in looking at myself front on in the mirror the area looks fuller. Some of my scalp was still numb from the surgery so it benefited me to not feel the pinches. My lowest scar was done which is around the neck area and this was much more painful like a burning sensation at times this is because the skin is thinner here and I should never have had a strip taken from this area, as there was no chance of a revision to camouflage this area is my only option.Due to the time constraint Carmen covered my other donor scar and added more density into the crown.

 

Here are some before photos, some side by side comparison photos and some after photos. Do note that my hair in the after shots is much shorter and the result will look denser once my hair gets longer.
