I am considering getting a HT but one things that bother me a lot is the scarring in the back of head. I wear my hair very short now (buzzed with zero guard) and I would like to have the option to do in the future as well. how bad is the scarring with FUE this days? I read on some HT clinics websites that with their method there is hardly any scarring at all. is there any truth to those statements? thanks in advance for any help
The question about shaving your head after an FUE is partly about the scar, small scars are better and less visible, but it is also about how many grafts you get harvested as too many will cause a see-through donor area. In addition to focusing on the donor area, you have to focus on the recipient area asking yourself: “What density will I achieve after my FUE?”. The answer to that question is that you will almost unlikely get anywhere close to your original density so if you shave your had and don’t take advantage of hair length, then your density may be thinner than you would like to see, especially when compared to another part of your head where you didn’t lose hair (a stark difference).
