After the strip is removed from back and sides of the head the two open cut ends at the donor site are approximated by suturing. The suturing is done with either absorbable or non-absorbable material as per the patient's request. Usually, any insult or injury to the skin produces a scar that is devoid of hair and also stays for life. Trichophytic closure treatment is a special technique used for the closure of the donor area. Using the technique makes the scar almost invisible and even aids the growth of hair from scar. This helps the surgeon to achieve a better aesthetic outcome of the surgery. Such an advanced technique is difficult to perfect and Dr Y V Rao has mastered it.
