Androgenetic alopecia is associated with a lot of psychological stress and hair transplant is the surgical modality of choice when medical treatment fails. The hair transplantation techniques are becoming more and more advanced with each passing day with focus on the aesthetic outcome and being more patient friendly and convenient for the surgeon too. Closing the donor area is a challenge as it leaves a scar and decreases the chances of second transplant if needed. Thus the technique of donor area closure and the choice of suture material are important determinants of the final cosmetic outcome of donor area. In this study we have compared the cosmetic outcome of conventional suture material (prolene) with staplers in the closure of donor wound area.
