After 2 hair transplants of 1000 grafts and then 1800 grafts, I think investing 30-45mins every morning to gel and blow dry my hair and still be worried about wind speeds outside is probably not normal. My hair loss was rated at 5A/6.
Long story short, I am thinking of shaving my head but am concerned about the big scar left on the back of my head from the 2 surgeries. Can you please let me know the options I have to reduce/eliminate this scar?
Thank you for your time and your teams contribution to this blog.
There’s no way to completely eliminate all donor scarring. You can’t undo a transplant. You might be able to have a scar revision, but even then there will still be visible scarring to some degree.
There is a way to camouflage the scar, as long as you didn’t mind keeping a very closely-cropped hairstyle. At New Hair Institute we have been addressing hair transplant linear scars with Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) (see example). For more information about SMP please visit scalpmicropigmentation.com.
