If I get the FUE procedure, to fill in the scar on the side of my head, will the fue scars be noticeable? I do a lot of television commercials and stuff on TV, so I really need it to not be detectabe, because I constantly have people doing stuff with my hair, and parting it in all sorts of ways. What I’m trying to say is, will the fue scars really be detectable if I want to have braids or my hair up? My agent actually told me I should get this scar repaired, and I really want to find the best, and I heard you are one of the best, and I’m really worried, becuase I don’t know what to do.
(The scar is not that big at all but my agent is bugging me about it).
PS- I got it when i fell against a desk when I was five. :)
Many doctors claim their expertise in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Thank you for the complement. You may want to read the first article on the follicular extraction technique, which I co-wrote and was published in 2002 — Follicular Unit Extraction: Minimally Invasive Surgery for Hair Transplantation.
All incisions on the skin will produce a scar. However a FUE scar is so small, it would be virtually undetectable especially among your scalp hair. Furthermore, in covering up your desk accident scar, FUE would be an ideal technique from its minimal invasiveness to its fast healing times.
If you are interested you should set up a consultation so that the entire procedure can be explained in detail. You may also be interested in coming to one of our monthly open house events so that you can potentially see a patient who has had a FUE procedure.
