Trichophytic closure

Trichophytic closure: the best way of closing wounds without visible scarring

Trichophytic closure, or Tricho for short, is a technique used in closing wounds. Its major advantage is that the wound in the donor area becomes practically invisible. The technique is used in FUT for closing the wound resulting from the removal of the strip.

Wound openings are closed in such a way that hairs can later on grow out of the scar, thus making it practically invisible. This is the reason why Tricho is the preferred technique in corrective or reconstructive treatment or when the patient likes to wear his hair very short.

Applying this technique successfully - and it should be remembered that it is not suitable for every patient - requires a lot of experience and know-how about the closure technique, scalp and hair structure and how best to "design" scars.
